A Fortunate Choice (for me!)

I just acquired this magnificent piece from an estate sale. It has been available for quite some time, and it is one of Alan’s finest creations. There are two different things at work here, and both are clever and immaculately crafted (as usual). The effect is easy to understand, easy to perform, but very hard to figure out. In other words, it is a great trick. Alan’s routine makes for a very entertaining presentation; I’ve already entertained with it several times. Thanks, Alan, for another masterpiece from the master!

Peiking Puzzler

I just picked this piece up in an estate sale. Boy, was I lucky! This is typically beautifully crafted and marvelously conceived. What I like about almost all of Alan’s effects are the clever methods, and Red Chinese Puzzle is no exception. It is a steal at the current retail price. Get one!

Better get this one…it’s a steal!

Jack the Lad is a wonderful piece of magic with more great subtleties built into the routine. There are two major pieces in this effect. The teak cover is beautifully made and handles wonderfully. The pine crate is very realistic in appearance and fits the presentation perfectly. This is the most I’ve spent for an Alan Warner piece, but it was worth every penny. Thanks, Alan!

What a domino theory!

I tried and tried to figure out the method for this trick before I bought it. I couldn’t, and when I received it I found out why. What clever thinking from the master himself! This is a great item for tablehopping. It’ a compact trick that packs a huge wallop!

This one’s hard to beat(le)

What a wonderful effect! Not difficult to perform, but very clever with great built-in subtleties. I just love the way you think, Alan. And of course, the craftsmanship is superior.

A Beautiful Penetration Effect

This is a very nice penetration effect, with absolutely magnificent props. Every time I obtain an Alan Warner effect, I marvel at the craftsmanship, the sheer beauty of the prop. The presentation, coupled with these enchanting props, makes for a very entertaining piece of magic

A Serpent Success

This prediction effect is another of the beautiful Alan Warner Egyptian pieces, and the presentation story included with the props is wonderful. This is one of the more colorful pieces in Alan’s collection, and the effect is a beauty, complete with humor and a magical zinger. I’ve even figured out a way to repeat the effect for the same audience. And such craftsmanship, you wouldn’t believe it…oh yes, you would. After all, it is an Alan Warner!

Doubly Good Double Prediction

What a beauty! Alan’s creative thinking is surpassed only by his absolutely unparalelled craftsmanship. This is a wonderful double prediction that involves not only creativity in the apparatus, but in the presentation as well. There are some subtleties in the method that, when combined with the ingenious apparatus, make this a world-class fooler. You must have one of these!

Cairo Con

This is my first piece of Alan Warner magic, but not my last. The effect is entertaining, and the method is clever, but what is most striking is the quality of craftsmanship and the friendliness of service I received from Alan in the acquisition of this beautiful piece. Thanks, Alan, for your creativity, your attention to detail, and your just plain being a nice person.
