1. I have found that you can construct an excellent dark writing thumb writer by gluing with epoxy glue the tip of a 'grease pencil' sometimes called china marking pencil obtainable from stationery stores to a standard band type nail writer. The black writing simulates that of a felt tipped pen. I hollow out a small hole in the thick 'crayon' and place it over the existing lead, covering the edges with flesh coloured adhesive tape used for bandages.
2. 'A Question I am Answered', described in Practiced Mental Effects was a favourite effect of Anneman's. It is bold and allows for good acting. It can be done almost impromptu, and is just as effective when performed for large groups. It is well worth the practice, because it has all the requisites of good mental magic.
3. The metal filing box which holds cards three inches by five is an excellent prop. Eric 'Boon* Mason uses it for a modest prediction chest. Using a thumb writer a word or number can be written on a card (unseen by the audience) which is sticking out between the hinges of the closed box. After the prediction is written the card is pushed into the box.
4. This same box also makes an excellent box with which to give demonstrations of clairvoyance.
