100% Satisfaction Guaranteed

We like the way we do business. We don't aggressively pursue new, fleeting customers because we prefer folks like you, who kindly give us your business on a regular basis because you recognize the hard work we put in, the quality of our magic, and (we hope) you trust us and our site for great magic.

We ONLY offer magic that we believe is spectacular; nothing just "good" or "okay." But we also know not everyone feels the same way about every product. So our new policy will allow you to return anything you aren't satisfied with and exchange it for something else in the store.

If you open it and you are not 100% satisfied, send it back to us! It's that simple. 100% satisfaction guaranteed. We want you to know that when you deal with us, we're forming a friendship we hope lasts years. And that means making sure you're happy each and every time we send you a package.

There are a few exceptions to this to help ensure that we can offer the best service possible. But they're fair exceptions and not those pesky terms and conditions you might find on other sites! If you are unsure, contact us anytime!

An inspiring, vivid volume like no other!


Sleightly Absurd is a journey through the mind of a mastermind-Charlie Frye. Within its pages, you'll find a slew of hard won secrets he has developed, refined, and performed over some four decades on six continents, as a professional entertainer on stages the world over.

It is filled, nearly to overflowing, with bewildering, bemusing musings and miracles that-until now-have been the guarded brainchildren of this perplexing practitioner of the dark arts.

Now you, dear reader, can gain a backstage view explaining the ins, outs, and inside outs of over fifty fantastic feats, each mined from the mind of this peerless prestidigitator.

Among the high class conjuring conceits explained are tricks with coins and cards-of both ordinary and extraordinary sizes-including a lengthy and advanced treatise on the elusive "ACAAN"; parlor and stage effects; three versions of the "oldest trick in the book"; Frye's trademark Eccentricks (cartoon-illustrated gags, tricks, and stunts); mind reading miracles; close-up dodges with dice; and more.

The work is rounded out with an uproariously funny memoir and a series of thought-provoking essays on character development, practice, and other practical matters for the modern mystery entertainer, and all others who take their art more seriously than themselves.

A book like no other-because there is no other!

No expense spared in its production!

A colossal colossus of conjuring and chicanery, from the one and only Charlie Frye!

Verily his equal does not exist!

A 298-page deluxe oversize 8 x 10" hardcover volume illustrated with over 1000 photographs. Smyth sewn binding for ease of use and study.

Advance praise for Sleightly Absurd:

"Here you will find cleverly crafted magic, brilliantly presented. Don't just absorb all this wonderful magic; assimilate his artist ethic, his pro-tips, and be inspired by his process. This is where the craft approaches the lofty title of 'art.' My highest recommendation."
John Carney

"Occasionally you will meet someone in your life that is just really, really good at everything they do. It's pretty annoying.
Charlie Frye makes everything look clever, funny and so effortless. He is a master in every sense. He has spent years developing an impressive collection of great material. Not just a creator but as a world-class performer. Charlie and Sherry are one of the most sought after acts on the planet.
Study this man, learn his ways of thinking, rehearsing, ethics, and performing. Get into his head. It will make you a better performer.
If you are lucky enough to have Charlie as a friend as I have, by example, he will make you a better person. This book is a great place to start."
