Paul Harris fans know what an extremely clever man he is. In his book Close-up Seductions, Paul reveals many more of his favorite and fine routines. Knowledgeable close-up kinda guys have said that this is one of his better books.
Bushwhacker: Completely automatic penetration of one card by another right under the spectator's nose.
Seductive Switch: Ace folded into a small packet, Six and Jack shown, Ace invisibly unfolds & changes places with the Six to form a perfect
Sensuous Shuffle: Deck shuffled with half the cards face up, instantly changes to all face-up as cards are spread, face down cards then rise out of the deck, the deck is given a shake, face-up cards visibly change to face down, the deck is shown as a mixture of face up and face down.
Cab Fare: One Jack place into a card case, remaining three buried in the deck, Jack spectator thinks of is in a card case, then all four Jacks are in the card case.
Limousine Service: Variation of the previous effect in which all four Jacks change to four indifferent cards, Jacks found in the card case.
Fan Dance: Card selected, spectator initials small piece of paper, deck fanned and piece of paper placed on edge of the fan where it magically sticks, paper travels along the edge of the fan, spectator grabs it and finds themselves holding the corner of their selected card, their initials having mysteriously transferred to it.
Air of Mystery: Deck removed from the case, squashed between hands, deck vanishes leaving behind only the two Jokers.
Deja Vu (Mike Giles, Pat Snowden, Dana Betz, Paul Harris): Four half dollars placed in the hand disappear and reappear underneath four cards on the table.
Michael's Proposition (Michael Ammar and Paul Harris): Good climax to any routine involving cards and coins, fourth coin travels to join the other three under spectator's hand, then all four coins and cards under spectator's hand, card removed, travels back under their hand.
"10" (Jay Sankey and Paul Harris): Ten of Hearts forced, four indifferent Hearts transform into jumbo Ten.
Looker (Terry Lagerould): Self-working joke/trick.
Blue Tattoo: Blue-backed card causes three others to turn blue as well.
Unhinged: Card case shown cut in two with half deck in each half, one side is still attached and acts as a hinge, deck unfolded, case opened, and the whole deck of cards removed which are then used for whatever card trick(s) magician desires.
Sleight of Ear: Seven of Spades forced, Four Kings and Seven used to show how more ink on the card makes it "crackle": a packet of Kings flexed makes noise, Seven flexed is silent, Spectator guesses which card is Seven by listening, audible King changes to silent Seven in magician's hands, routine climaxes with Seven becoming magically stapled to card case.
Bleached Blonde: Queen seemingly changed to a blank card, can be done with a borrowed deck and does not involve ringing in an extra card or gimmick.
Too Slick: Ace is "buttered" for cheating purposes, Ace slides out from between cards to disappear, finally appearing face down in face-up deck.
Sweet Stuff: Borrowed coin and the contents of a sugar packet change places with the help of a borrowed bill.
Wonder Woman: "Wherein anatomically accurate character portraits of you and a spectator are fashioned from a common deck of cards."
