“Money Laundering” makes use of a common magic prop to erase dollar bills and then print new ones from pieces of paper. “Beer Money” offers a variation on a classic bill change. Here, a dollar bill changes into a beer bottle label, followed by some other bits. With this routine, Harlan has taken the standard bill change routine and removed the need to repeat the effect to restore the bill.
“Fairest of Them All” is a “find a selected card” effect that is indeed fair and baffling. However, its selection process is rather convoluted and requires very specific instructions to spectators. As a result, it’s a magician fooler that is probably best presented to other magicians who will be able to follow the instructions. “Hebe, Hera, Hecate” offers a good twisting of the aces routine. There’s also a decent coins across routine, “Allied Alliance” that employs foreign coins, and a bit with a toothpick. Dan Harlan performs and teaches one effect from each of the previous volumes of the original magazine.
