The Hermit focuses
creativity, and inspiration.
A digital magazine for
the creative magician.
Vol. 2, No. 6
The latest issue of The Hermit Magazine has a fantastic assortment of effects, creative thinking, and inspiration.
Ryan Schlutz (author of False Anchors and Unanchored), presents RNG, his updated take on Card at Any Sum.
A returning contributor to the magazine, Bill Citino shares his routine Making a Difference, a new variation of a Scott Robinson routine.
A Nightmare in Red and Blue by Scott Baird, which is an improved handling of an old Don Nielson and Karl Fulves trick from Pallbearer's Review. I also teach my Flash Ribbon effect later in the issue.
June is also Tomás Giammarco's first appearance in The Hermit, and he shares his routine Strange Concordance 23332, of which I am a huge fan! It's based on Hofzinser's eighth card problem, Strange Harmony.
Brandon Sheffield returns to share a clever handling of a classic transposition with Lucky Coin and Purse.
Chris Bruce shares a fantastic gambling demo with five phases of skill,
Dan Waterman uses an old key card principle to execute a clean and simple card Crimp Stab routine, and. uses it in a variation of a flourishy card location from Apocalypse,
and Jay Sankey returns to The Hermit with Sankey Says, where he discusses The Rewrite Phenomenon.
Also, James Mollenkamp shares four lessons that he learned after examining the structure of the classic Miser's Dream routine, and finally,
Biz teaches his Biz Cascade Control in the Sleight Corner!
That's one year in the books.
I've received a few queries now about whether or not I will be offering any Hermit-branded merch or swag. I hadn't planned on it, but I listened to your requests and created a page on TeePublic—so if you want to look through some of the designs, and maybe buy a gift for yourself or a Hermit supporter, feel free! There's t-shirts, mugs, tote bags... that sort of tat.

Note that your order will be fulfilled by TeePublic, and The Hermit cannot be held responsible for late or lost shipments.
