-====== 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.
