The story deck is a classic demonstration in card magic. It has stood the test Write a review Terry This is probably one of the best self working card effects of all time right up there with "Out of this World". Watch the Youtube video to get an idea how impossible this looks to an audience. This effect not only fools lay people but has fooled many knowledgeable Magicians as well.

Full disclaimer:I personally do not like Liam at all. All jokes aside, I have to say that Liam is the most creative dudes I know, and a combination of late nights and stale marshmallows have allowed him to churn out a number of really cool "off the beaten track" ideas.
Heres a list of the effects in his latest offering: Predict something incredibly personal to your spectator — the location of their tattoo. Then go one step further, and divine the design!
Imagine causing the Hot and Cold water to transpose between your bathroom taps! A spectator is offered a free choice from your stack of business cards, and signs the blank side. On turning it over, he finds it is the same business card that you signed earlier in this strange display of coincidence. A cigarette is held in one fist, and the smoke from it rises from your other one! Show the psychic powers of two little stickmen dudes that you drew onto the back of your business cards.
Transpose a silk with the ribbons from a sealed party popper, and reveal the effect with a bang. A spectator reveals the contents and sender of a piece of your own, personal post. Have a spectator choose a CD and then reveal it bit by bit, starting with the artist, type of music and finally album name. Crazy, but true. Beat a spectator at a game of psychic snooker. You show how easy it is to find a spectators card, because it has a different colour back to the others.
So was I. I was even more intrigued when I found out that Liam was making me pay for the honour of reading it. Anyway, Im not going to give my personal opinion of every trick in here. The writing is clear and easy to understand, with the occasional Montier wittisism thrown in for good luck. Now go buy it. All the best,.
This is a mentalist card trick based on a well known short story by Roald Dahl, called "The wonderful world of Henry Sugar". The basic plot of the story is that Henry Sugar finds a manuscript that states that you can use mental yoga techniques to, amongst other things see things without your eyes. Study and practice meant that Henry was eventually able to see what playing cards were in an opponents hands just by mentally visualising them. He then went on to cheat all the big casinos out of loads of money — which being a nice guy he donated to orphanages all around the world.
Henry Sugar by Liam Montier
Introduce the deck, and begin your opening remarks about Henry Sugar. Cut the deck into two equal piles, and go to riffle shuffle them together. Then apparently change your mind and instead, suggest that the spectator does it for you. By cutting the pack, and using the appropriate gestures, you can ensure that the spectator will use a riffle shuffle. If you want to make completely sure, patter can be made about the casinos, and how the cards are shuffled there. Then demonstrate the riffle shuffle and have the spectator carry it out. Demonstrate what the spectator is to do by taking the top card of the deck and looking at it, keeping the card facing you.

He then went on to cheat all the big casinos out of loads of money — which being a nice guy he donated to orphanages all around the world. So the scene is set — the magician claims that they have seen the manuscript, and have had a certain amount of success with the mental yoga techniques involved.
