I purchased Mike's lecture from Penguin and it's just fantastic! Nearly 5 hours long and you get access to a link on his website where you get access to even more moves. Well, worth the money.

One of the tricks that stood out to me was "Heisting Histed Heisted 2.0. Here's the description of the effect from Penguin:

Heisting Histed Heisted 2.0 – Suitable for stage, platform or a close-up show. This one is mind reading at its best. The miracle worker divines the names of five cards that were literally only thought of!

It's really amazing! I'd encourage you to go and get this lecture. I think that you'll get more than your money's worth.

Mike is a member here and we're lucky to have him!

Thanks for the good press Rudy! That was a marathon lecture. I didn't realize how long we went. Good folks to work with too.

Heisting Histed Heisted 2.0 was very well received. It's a powerful piece of magic, mainly for platform, stage or a formal show. I use it in every show I do.

I haven't received my DVDs from Penguin yet. I guess it's only available as a download right now. They also have Power Plays as a download for $19. The book has been out of print for many years. I think it's my best work so far. I am working on a new book. I need to get into gear on that project. I have the material, but I haven't started to formally write it up. There is a TON of work in putting a book out. Gotta get psyched!

I hope everyone who gets the lecture feels free to email or pm me with constructive criticism. That helps to make the next lecture even better.

Mike

I first 'met' Mike Powers through Herb Morrissey's demos of Holey Terror II, The PM Principle, and after meeting Brett Young at NYCAN 90, I bought Top Secret Stuff...I've been a fan ever since.
From his top notch books, his many contributions to periodicals, and his consistent generosity on magic forums, Mike Powers has created and shared some of the best Close-up Magic of the last two decades.
Mike, it is a true pleasure to be able to discuss magic with you here.
Thank you for all you've shared with us.

I'm glad that I was able to encourage you!

Once again, great lecture! I'll put Power Plays on my list of magic to purchase [smile]

So glad I saw these posts. I thought I had missed the boat on the long-out-of-print POWER PLAYS. I just saw Mike's post and purchased the download from Penguin

Mike's website also has great effects for sale and a generous selection of free material... MallOfMagic.com

Steve, Thanks for pointing out the free stuff that Mike is giving away! I'm in the middle of reading his PM Principle. Sounds really good!

Very generous of him to share this so freely!

Thanks Mr. Powers!

It's an awesome lecture filled with excellent magic. I especially like "Invisible 21" and "Diminishing Return" but the other tricks are very nice as well.

I agree about "Invisible 21". Too bad Mike had such a horrible spectator on that one [smile]
