What are some good books I could buy in order to help me build and perform large stage illusions for my show :?: I am a solo performer, so I need a book that dosen't dwindle on magician and assistant tricks. Maybe some audience part. illusions :?: I just need a book for building stage illusions basically (i.e. Guillotine (excuse the bad spelling), Vanishing Head, etc.) I would still like to learn to build magician and assistant illusions such as the Spiker and the Mentamorphisis. Thanx! :D

Is the "Walk Through a Propeller" illusion in the book, like Brett Daniels Jet Turbine illusion, only not as fancy? Just visit BrettDaniels.com, click on video, then Jet Turbine if you've never seen it?

I think you might mean "Windshear" which was invented by Jim Steinmeyer. It has not been published in a book. Try contacting him. Unfortunately I cant give you a link to his web site because that would be non-penguin marketing.
