School for Scoundrels, 2014

Pop Haydn and Chef Anton, will be presenting our famous School for Scoundrels at the Magic Castle in November. This will be our nineteenth year of teaching the Scoundrels Class at the Magic Castle!

We have heard from many people who cannot come to weekly classes because of distance. This year, our entire class, for the first time, will be taught in just one weekend, November 22 & 23!

We will meet in the Magic Castle’s Magic University classroom, Saturday 22nd & Sunday 23rd from 11:00 am until 1:00 am and then from 2:00 pm until 4:00 pm each day.

Registration is $250.00 for the two days. The Castle Brunch for our students will be just $18.00 each day. There will be a special room rate for the Magic Hotel for our students. No more than 20 people will be accepted into class, on a first come, first served basis. You do not have to be a magician or a member of the Magic Castle to participate.

For more information, or to register, email Nancy Magill at

Pop Haydn’s Teleportation Device available for Immediate Download!

Pop Haydn, T-Device


This is the entire hour and a half video we sell as a DVD, but in downloadable digital format. It explains every detail of method and performance of this exciting and baffling routine. 

A bill is borrowed from the audience, a corner containing one of the serial numbers on the bill torn off and kept by the spectator, and the bill is signed, but it is teleported by a strange device into a lemon and then into a raw egg. The video also explains how to make the teleportation device. 
These are two, high quality mp4 videos, each 257 megs, immediately available for download upon purchase.
ONLY $25!

“Tricks and Traps” by Clifton Wooldridge

1-1-Tricks & Traps

In my private collection of books and pamphlets from around 1900 I have this interesting little pamphlet which has survived here into the 21st Century.

It is Clifton R. Woolridge’s Tricks and Traps

It contains “over 100 varieties of confidence games, fakir’s snares and swindles worked on the unwary” from the notebooks of “America’s Sherlock Holmes.” 

The stories are fascinating, and I learned a lot of valuable information from this book which has been very helpful along the way. 

It is out of copyright, so naturally I decided to scan it and sell it to my friends and fellow travelers…

This little stapled pamphlet went for only two bits when I bought it. But water was free then…

It’s FIFTY CENTS now. You can find it HERE

I hope you enjoy it!
