-====== Future Reverse ====== 
  
-While commonly credited to Ed Marlo, because of its use in the second method in his 1945 booklet //[[http://askalexander.org/display/14049/Future+Reverse/7|Future Reverse]]//, this sleight is described, without attribution, in //[[http://askalexander.org/display/13140/Greater+Magic/395|Greater Magic]]// (1938), bottom of p. 339, in the context of a card prediction, in which the magician openly reverses a card in the deck, which later proves to be a freely named selection. (This //Greater Magic// reference was spotted by Denis Behr.) This effect, by the way, bears a resemblance to Marlo's "Future Reverse" effect, suggesting the item in //Greater Magic// was his inspiration. Marlo does not claim the sleight; nor does he cite a source for it.
