by Gene Nielsen
anthology of powerful mentalism presentations from the
most prolific contributor to Bascom Jones' MAGICK
1970, Bascom Jones began publishing what would become one of the
most significant publications in the history of mentalism and
psychic entertainment. Titled simply "MAGICK", Bascom's
four-page newsletter arrived faithfully twice a month for twenty
years. Today, original copies of MAGICK bring top dollar on eBay,
and the bound collection produced in limited numbers by Collector's
Workshop many years ago is highly sought-after as well by discerning
performers around the world.
Nielsen was without question THE most prolific contributor
to MAGICK, although what many people don't know is that he often
contributed under a number of pseudonyms. Here, for the first
time, the true genius behind those pseudononymous contributors
much encouragement, urging, and begging, Gene has finally agreed
to release "The MAGICK Years", a 202-page digital
publication that includes every routine and presentation of his
that was published in MAGICK -- plus a rare peek into his notebook
for ideas that were being developed at the time of Bascom's untimely
passing. For the first time ever, every single contribution to
MAGICK by Gene has been put into a single collection and offered
to the mentalism community.
through this collection for the first time, you will find yourself
going, "Hmmm ... THAT'S where that idea came from!"
many of the standard mentalism presentations used by professionals
today were first published in MAGICK under Gene Nielsen's name
(or one of his many pseudonyms). Some
of Gene’s methods should seem familiar to you because he created
them and others have used his methods for their own purposes.
Within the pages of "The MAGICK Years" you will
have the rare opportunity to see the creator at work.
MAGICK Years is a 202-page electronic book (delivered via
download as an Adobe PDF) jam-packed with routines and ideas that
are both practical and powerful, including:
Mental card routines
Spoon & coin bending
Mentalism with coins
ESP card routines
exception, Gene's routines are direct, powerful and easy to perform.
After reading "The MAGICK Years", the question
won't be, "Will I perform any of this?" ... the question
will be, "Which of these devastating presentations will I
I already own MAGICK ..."
you're one of the fortunate few that already own either the original
copies of MAGICK or the bound Collector's Workshop edition, you
may be wondering, "Why would I want this? I already have
everything that was published in MAGICK."
fair question, and to be honest, the same thought occurred to
me when I first picked up the manuscript for "The MAGICK
Years". But this book is so much more than just an anthology
of Gene's contributions to MAGICK.
begin with, Bascom usually edited every contribution to fit the
space he had in each issue, so in many cases key ideas and subtle
nuances were left out. Bascom also liked to add his own twists
and handlings to many contributions, which meant that sometimes
the final result was decidedly different from what the creator
"The MAGICK Years", Gene sets the record straight,
so to speak, explaining in his own words the thought process that
went into every presentation, and where applicable, how his original
idea differed from Bascom's. In addition, Gene also provides updates
and additional ideas that have developed since the original publication
of the material, giving you alternative ways to present these
also find many stories and anecdotes about what went on behind
the scenes of MAGICK, including a rare look at Bascom himself.
Being deeply influenced by MAGICK years ago, I was fascinated
to learn about the personality behind the publication, and reading
Gene's recollections has enriched my understanding of both the
man and his work.
and if you don't already own the original MAGICK ... you really
want to get Gene's book NOW!

Nielsen is without a doubt one of mentalism's finest thinkers.
I'm delighted to see that his many great contributions to
