Mandrakebananafish, Lady of Mystery, supportnickj. Return to Reviews – Books and other printed formats. Review This is a wonderful book – the first of Jermay’s that I have had the pleasure to read. I’m working my way through Building Blocks at the jerrmay. I think for this book, I would actually like to go through each individual effect: Touching on Hoy Simply ingenious. FaustI can see where Luke got the inspiration for this effect, hermay it is wonderful. The very few times that I have performed this, so far, have appeared exactly as described.
However, Luke also offers several variations and “outs” if the effect doesn’t go exactly as planned which, in my opinion, only enhance the effect. The Dangerous Opener This is another wonderful effect. He slams his hand down on the selected bag revealing under the bag left, an upturned razor sharp knife. Jermay’s presentation, both of the build up to and of the actual effect, is incredible and can result in leaving the audience in a state of awe.

It is an incredibly powerful, yet devilishly simple effect that can be used in a variety of settings. Essays The book includes two essays, one on pre-show scripting and another on “The Psychic VS Psychological Performance”, both of which are very thought-inspiring.
I don’t wish to go into much detail about either of these, except to say that both make for a very interesting read and provide useful tips for later performances. Blowing Bubbles This isn’t necessarily a stand-alone effect, but more a very effective presentational device. As with most of Luke’s effects, the methodology behind this is incredibly simple, but the effect looks wonderful.
When this particular effect is performed, the audience will see the participant react the moment the selected thought leaves their mind. I personally love the presentation and currently use it for one effect, but plan to try to weave it into a couple of others as I think it would make a lovely little addition.
Phone Prediction An excellent effect I feel that I’m repeating this quite a lot recently. This starts in much the same way as many other phone prediction effects, but has a couple of twists in the end that really, in my opinion, add to the effect.
I don’t really wish to develop this much at the moment, as I’m still playing with the method and presentation, but can see this becoming a major part of future performances.
Fortunately for us over here in the UK, a lot of people haven’t even heard of Criss Angel Anyway, I think that this is one of the strongest effects in the whole book. It could be described as a twist on Banachek’s PK Touches, but done in a way that leaves evidence behind of the psychic phenomenon. Again, it is a very simple effect, but the presentation really sells it as with, I suppose, most mental fsng and makes it the small miracle it appears to be.
Blindfold Sequence Last, but by no means least, is the jfrmay sequence.
This, as I believe I jerrmay said about all of the effects in this book, is brilliant. Much like the others, the method is very simple, but the effect is very strong. This is a personal favourite of mine. It is simple, visual and incredibly memorable. Overall In case you hadn’t gathered this from the main body of the review, I love this book. Luke’s thinking is very clever and I think that all of the effects in the book are brilliant.
Most are incredibly simple and will leave you wondering how you didn’t figure them out before, but thanks to Luke’s presentational ideas and small subtleties, appear impossible and leave lasting impressions on your audiences.
An excellent book, very highly recommended. Is Touching on Hoy the human version of the tossed out deck? Although, I don’t begrudge them a sale, I do groan inwardly that an audience for their work exists.
As I mentioned in another post ‘popular’ science is pet hate of mine. Like instant cora is to a real coffee enthusiast and machine-rolled cigars are to a cigar enthusiast.
I think that The Dangerous Opener is probably the best as in the one I use most often effect in the book, if you wish to compare the effects.
The Magic Cafe Forums – The Coral Fang by Luke Jermay (Review requested)
The technique is ingenious and the response incredible. It sets you up perfectly for the rest of your performance. Fanf Bubbles is a nice little “move” as well. Similarly, the rest of the material in this book is well worth a read if you wish to add to your psychic act. I love how this effect ckral emulates what a real mind reader would do in the same situation. Nothing written down, no asking for the info before revealing the prediction.
Can be performed “real time” with no pre-show, no secret helpers, and no where for the spectators mind to hide! Although I love this effect, I ciral only been able to perform it a grand total of twice. You see, most of my “test subjects” know each other very well and are VERY analytical, and I am concerned that they fanb discuss the effect with each other after the fact. I seldom get to work with a large enough group of laypeople to adequately stage and perform the effect without the risk of “discussion” after the fact.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to choosing a cral audience for the effect, or ways to manage and reduce the amount of volunteer interaction after the fact?
Apparently Joseph Dunninger used to perform pre-show magic tricks, and then go onstage an appear to possess incredible psychic abilities.
I presume that audiences, back when Dunninger was performing, weren’t used to seeing such psychic abilities demonstrated and so did not consider them simple tricks, allowing Dunninger to perform as he did.
Sorry to go off-topic, but it’s a little something I thought I’d share. And I find it hard to get away from that because I am not yet performing professionally.
The Coral Fang
Whenever I do have the pleasure of performing for people that have never met me before, I usually end up having at least one friend nearby, telling people about the other “Awesome Tricks” I do. You are right though, on the rare occasions I do get an audience all to myself, and I am able to rid myself of the “challenge” of magic and frame it all as a demonstration of ability, it’s like black and white.
These are the only times I have performed TOH, and some other stuff I keep locked safely away from my friends. I guess I just really need to find a better source of good audiences to practice with, because I am really looking forward to getting MUCH deeper into this. What I find interesting about mixing the two is the change in audiences’ perception.
