Lost Souls (A Collection Of Impossible Location Methods by Pete Wilton)
Within this ebook you will find a number of card effects based around the'Impossible Location'presentation was the main effect is that a freely chosen card is lost in the deck by the spectator under impossible conditions and you are still able to find it.
A collection of lost souls is of easy to perform techniques that allow you to locate a freely chosen card is lost in the deck. there are different methods depending on the amount of set up the preferred, if any, and all use various devious methods to accomplish the end result.
From the Introduction:
'a number of years ago I became fascinated with the concept of finding a chosen card that had been lost in the deck by the spectator - without the magician touching the deck whilst it was returned.
My ultimate conditions for the effect I wanted were as follows:An ordinary deck was used (52 different cards);The deck was shuffled by the spectator;The spectator selects the card without me touching the deck(hence proving that it was a free choice and no force used);The card was returned to the deck by the spectator herself and the card could be inserted anywhere the spectator wanted;As soon as the card was returned to the deck the spectator shuffled the cards again without me having any - contact withThe cards;Only after the spectator had returned the card to the deck and shuffled would I touch the cards to find the selection.
Essentially what I was looking for was for a spectator to be handed a deck of a card cards that he / she then shuffles. that person removes and places it back in the deck and the cards are again shuffled. only then are the cards handed back to you.
After playing around with various ideas I developed a method which to a large extent met my criteria. The effect was called'Lost'and was extremely deceptive. there was an element or two of'Lost' however that I wasn't happy with and my search continued. However, my fascination for this type of effect would have probably led me to search for new methods even if those unfavourable elements weren't there.
Following this I then looked into other people's ideas, either ones marketed as a single effect or ones forming part of other material such as lecture notes/book/DVD. I was still on the search for more ideas to give up my year for these types of effects and this led me to create the techniques found within this book.
Hopefully you will find the material in here useful for your own needs in creating that impossible location. Each one uses various techniques and processing of various conditions. Although not all of them to fulfil each of my original criteria that I had initially set myself they do fit most.
Also, included in these pages, kept till the last, of course, are my own favourite effects which can even be performed with a dalgleish deck that you do not touch until the cards are given to you to find the selection. You will find these in the an section which can all be performed with a dalgleish shuffled deck. I hope you enjoy this work and find your own favourite impossible location effect within.'- Pete Wilton - December 2007
