Marty's Bag of Tricks
I write a series of regular columns each month on my blog (Marty’s Bag of Tricks). The links below will help you discover older articles that you might find interesting. New articles will be highlighted in the Ruseletter on the first Sunday of every month.
Note: All links open in a new tab/window.
Hocus Focus - Articles on the often neglected topic of practising magic.
Legends of Legerdemain - Learn about colourful characters from magic’s rich history.
Understanding the Impossible - Read this column to better understand the fundamental aspects of magic technique, presentation and theory.
Corrupting the Classics - New versions of old classics.
Tricks, Tricks and More Tricks - Original, unpublished magic. Each article features three related tricks (by plot, method or presentation).
Obscure Origins - uncover the secret history of popular magic tricks and sleight-of-hand moves.
Packet Trick Paradise - Learn a new packet trick or three!
Deeper Magic - Exploring the “deeper”, lesser-known secrets of magic.

I also publish one or two feature articles per month that take a more detailed look at a specific topic.
