Steve Bryant’s Haunted Chicago lecture

Halloween is just around the corner, and this is your perfect chance to learn some of Steve’s “World’s Scariest Card Tricks” from his two acclaimed books, The Little Egypt Book of Ghosts and The Little Egypt Book of Numbers. Unlike some Halloween-themed magic that drifts too far into the goth and bizarre magick realms,Steve’s routines are designed to entertain children at Halloween parties and adults drinking in bars. The material is accordingly visual, direct, surprising, commercial, often funny, and occasionally downright scary. It has been praised and performed by amateurs such as scoutmasters as well as by magic’s top professionals.

If this material is new to you, you and your audiences may be in for the most fun Halloween you and they have ever experienced.

From Jamy Ian Swiss’s review of Book of Ghosts:

All of this is wrapped up in an exceedingly well-produced package … The book is not only handsomely produced but the design itself is delightful and engaging throughout. I thoroughly enjoyed The Little Egypt Book of Ghosts--and despite Mr. Bryant's generally light-hearted tone and touch, there is at least one piece in here that is likely to scare the bejabbers out of the biggest meanest toughest guy in the room, if you do it right. And what could be more fun than that?

Steve Bryant is a longtime Magic Castle member, is the creator of The Little Egypt Gazette and Little Egypt Magic (online monthly journals since 1995, at, and is a feature writer for Genii and other magazines, author of cover stories on the likes of Melinda, Brett Daniels, Martin Lewis, Amazing Jonathan, Mac King, Bodine Balasco, and others.

Join us if you dare, and watch Steve’s spooky material come to life, or should we say death?
