Pro Shop Announces...
Within The Dark
Two Essential Golden Age Manuscripts
for Seance Workers and
Golden Age Mentalism Fans
Dardik is an avid
collector of spirit magic,
seance equipment and seance history, and his writings
have appeared in the PEA
newsletter "Vibrations", the bizarre magick journal "Oracle", and
several Neal Scryer books, to name just a few places you may have seen
his work. The Pro
Shop is pleased to present two essential Golden Age manuscripts from
Stefan Dardik that lay bare the inner workings of the dark seance, a
critical component of any theatrical seance presentation.
The first manuscript is a rare Robert Nelson publication that
mysteriously disappeared from Nelson catalogs in 1946...
addition to being a seasoned performer, private reader, and radio
psychic, Robert Nelson was also a masterful writer of ad copy. Here's
Manifestations in Nelson Enterprises Catalog 19...
eerie and baffling pseudo spirit manifestations are easy to accomplish,
and with very little preparation or expense, once you know how! Dr.
RaMayne, eminent authority on Pseudo-spiritism here reveals many of the
inner secrets of the 'spook parlors', including a few of the
never-before revealed effects.
The full range of spirit manifestations are discussed, explained and
amplified in this work. Including manifestations, Spirit Light, new
sound effects, 'bees', slate writing, ectoplasm, materialization and a
bew of luminous effects.
Supplementing the strange revelations of the Spirit parlor is a section
devoted to spirit tricks, materializations, etc., with ordinary
luminous paint. This section is most complete and should prove of
immense value to the ghost worker."
Whether you are already offering a seance to your clients, thinking
about adding a seance to your catalog of services, or just a student of
mentalism's diverse history, Spirit
Manifestations will be a valuable resource for you.

seances of the day emphasized the fact that the seance medium was
securely tied before the lights went out. While Nelson was very
thorough in describing how he presented a seance, he didn't go into
detail on how to get loose from the ropes that prevented him from
engaging in any shenanigans, preferring instead to promote
his "Instantaneous Spirit Tie".
We wanted to go above and beyond, however, so included in this re-issue
is S.W. Reilly's "Spirit
Rope Ties: An Expose of Secret Methods", in
which he gives step-by-step, illustrated instructions on six different
methods for escaping the ties that bind.
In addition to the Spirit
Manifestations and Spirit
Rope Ties manuscripts, we added a
section that features the original ads for the Nelson products promoted
in "Spirit Manifestations",
including Nelson's Spirit Rapper, Floating
Spirit Faces, the Phantom Ghost Projector, Spirit Trumpets, Ectoplasm,
Luminous Novelties, Spirit Slates, and more. The artwork for these ads
is, in a word, priceless.
For some people (myself included), part of the "Nelson Experience" is
in the look and feel -- and smell -- of the original manuscript. Typed
up on the most advanced typewriter of the day and run off on a
mimeograph machine, there is just something about reading Nelson's
devious methods in their original form that can't be described.
Unfortunately, we can't duplicate the feel or smell of the original
manuscript, but we have included a section that contains scans of
"Spirit Manifestations" that recreate the anticipation and discovery
that came with every order placed with Nelson Enterprises.
All in all,
this 54-page e-book is all you'd really need to start presenting your
own Dark Seance.

of seances in the early days was the use of spirit trumpets to convey
the voices of the seance medium's spirit guides and the dearly departed
souls of the seance attendees. In some seances, the trumpets actually
floated in the air, held in the hands of unseen spirits. Here's a

The Dark Circle explains in
detail what went into presenting a trumpet seance, and quite a bit
more. It was
anonymously written in 1939 by someone who was either a seance medium
or acted as an assistant to one, and provides a level of detail and
understanding that only comes from working in the trenches.
