Bravo
Hey Christian, I never thought I'd be replacing my old Bicycle friends, but your Phoenix deck is killer. I'm also completely enamored by your Gypsy Deck. The props you put out are truly first class all the way. Bravo and thanks!

Paradise Lost released
With the date of 9/9/9 the new effect of Christian Chelman is finally available

09.09.2009

"Paradise Lost" is the latest effect by Christian Chelman, released in a LIMITED EDITION of only 500 copies!

Paradise LostParadise Lost is Christian Chelman's masterpiece and an effect straight from his current professional repertoire, for the first time divulged to the fraternity. The effect, a co-production Card-Shark and MPMagic, is not just explained in the accompanying booklet, but taught in every detail: a first for a bizarre magick effect! All necessary material is provided as well, including some "hauntiques" that will otherwise be very difficult to source, as anybody who tried to replicate any effect from Chelman's books will well know.

Your audience sees two 3-card-sets of 6 of Spades and a blank card which mysteriously and repeatedly travels from one packet to appear in the other one: escaping the clutches of Hell to safety! The reason for this is explained by an eerie tale where your "oh-so-clever" cousin is outsmarted by the Devil himself as he didn't keep a pact he sealed in New Orleans. The effect is the final evolution of Pact, a trick first explained in English by Christian in his book, Capricornian Tales but the effect itself is a lesson in routining a text with magical techniques in order to create wonderement by the audience. Paradise Lost is the result of 40 years of experimentation by Christian Chelman.

If you want to have an idea of Christian Chelman's masterpiece, you can read this post on the Magic Café, although the story (which is 50% of any Bizarre Magick effect), sadly, doesn't convey the full magic the audience can experience.

When you buy the effect, you receive a 24-pages booklet with clear and detailed instructions on how to perform the routine and how to integrate the techniques with the story; a set of antique looking custom playing cards; six antique multi-coloured doubloons that are essential to the story; and a specially-printed leaflet.

This effect is strongly limited and only available through Card-Shark and MPMagic.
