Hi, I was not sure where to post this, but I think shuffled not stirred is the best place.

I'm looking for stories like Bill Malone's "Sam the Bellhop"
http://old.noob.us/entertainment/awesome......bellhop/

Rich Bloch has another one called "The Brotherhood" in the I hate rope tricks book.

And there is one in Scarne's on Cards called "Jack Goes to Town"

Do you know others?

And then, from the performance stand point... do you use the Z****w like Bill, or do you use over hands?

I am trying to come up with my own and would like to mix other effects through the story, like an ACR, cutting four of a kind (like Bill cuts the kings), getting a couple of spectators to pick a card and sign it, and that card signed appear at the right moment (two cards could represent two of the audience members, who would then become part of the story), etc...

If you perform any of these story telling effects, I would love to hear from you

I know that Recall by Tom Crosbie has a story telling aspect built into the stack.

There is a review of the product here: http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......orum=109

Juan Tamariz has two that work with his stack. I personally have not used them, but they are in his book.

That offers you quite a bit of potential as you have two stories and an excellent stack at your disposal.

Ymumagic, do you remember the name of the effects? I have his books (two volumes in spanish) and I don't remember them.

Thanks

I just looked it up, they don't have a name, it's just "first story" and "second story."

Its at the end of chapter 8, page 189.

Thanks, I found them. In the spanish version they are in the second volume dealing with half stack. Tamariz also mentions "el caballero en la iglesia" and "la historia de pedro". Does anyone know those stories?

Tnanks!!
