Howdy magic folks...

I have a strong passion for memdeck magic.

One good thing I look forward to see is a long list with memdeck magic books and effects.
I will try to compile a list.

Feel free to put together every thing you know about memdeck magic here.

Mats... welcome to the forum!

Have you read Simon Aronson's eBook, "Memories Are Made of This"?

It is available as a free download from Mr. Aronson's site:

http://magicians.simonaronson.com

Andi Gladwin designed the layout. As such, the PDF is also available at Vanishing Inc.:

https://www.vanishingincmagic.com/magic-downloads/free-magic-downloads/memories-are-made-of-this/

If you are a fan of the Juan Tamariz method, I highly recommend Asi Wind's A.A.C.A.A.N.

Eric Richardson's 'Tour' also has a lot of work on the Aronskn stack, perhaps most tantalizingly how to get to it from NDO. It's not mindblowing, but saves lazy people like myself from having to do any actual thinking.

I was telling one of our forum members that I've had difficulty calculating the simple math necessary to perform Asi's great trick.

Kind of embarrassing [frown]

Ha! Nothing like doing math in one's head under pressure. Damn those S.A.T.s! Between the memorization, the arithmetic and the move, there's quite a lot going on here in the moment before the miracle. 

As for mastering this effect, it all comes down to repetition. Here is a link to a A.C.A.A.N. random selection generator:

I use this site with a timer. How many can I nail in twenty minutes? My memory, handling and math skills improved simultaneously.

This tool is fantastic,  way easier than what I used to do.  Rudy it just comes down to practice,  I don't actually do the calculations any more, I just sort of know it having done it a million times.

Eric Mead's book Tangled Web has a chapter dedicated to convincing handling of a mem deck, to help cancel any thoughts of a stack in play.

Denis Behr has a similar chapter on handling in his book Handcrafted Card Magic.

Darwin Ortiz has a few mem deck tricks in Scams & Fantasies.

Pit Hartling has a new book out soon that is dedicated to memorized deck magic. It's called In Order to Amaze. You can find more info here:

http://www.inordertoamaze.com/#intro

There must be a ton more resources, but those are a few that spring to mind.

EDIT: I've just noticed that some of the books I mentioned above have already been brought up in other threads within the Memorized Deck sub-forum, but if this thread is meant to be a compiled list, perhaps their mention is still appropriate here.

Scott Cram created a resource list many years ago which is very useful. It can now be found here
