The English Magazine Club 71 ran from 1970 to 2007 and was produced by Geoff Maltby the owner of Repro Magic. For most of the time Walt Lees was the editor. Contributors include: Max Maven, Peter Duffie, Patrick Page, Al Smith, Angelo CARBONE, Ian Rowland, Werner Miller, Peter Kane, Paul Hallas, Stephen Tucker, Ali Bongo and many more. The subjects discussed span everything from mentalism and cards, to magic for children and close-up.
IT'S ME! (Solyl Kundu): Three cards show a picture of a magic wand. All three cards change into mirrors. Finally, you have a card with a mirror, a card with a wand and the third card with your picture (or your business card)!
FORCED TO (Ron Escott): Two shuffled decks are dealt, simultaneously, by two spectators. Both stop at the same card!
COIN IN BALLOON (Angelo Carbone): A coin is thrown towards a balloon and magically appears inside the balloon that can be examined!
HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF? (Melvin LeHair): An easy "Find The Lady" routine with a Queen and four Aces!
CHEEKY RING (Ali Cardabra): A nice routine in three phases with a ring and a rope. The ring penetrates the rope, then it becomes free and, finally, it penetrates the rope again!
RESYMBOL (Max Maven): ESP cards in different colors are displayed. One card is chosen and two more cards reveal the symbol and the color of the selection!
ILLUSION (Philip Sweeting): Four red-backed cards with blue spots on their faces are shown. One of the spots turns red and on another card you have TWO spots. Finally, everything reverts to normal!
MENTAPATHY (Angelo Carbone): A fan of 15 cards glued together is shown and one is mentally chosen. You are able to reveal the identity of the card!
JACKS BE QUICK (Justin Higham): A clever version of the sandwich effect where a selected card appears between two Jacks!
FINGERED 2 (Simon Lovell): A unique revelation of a selected card with a transposition!
