Some people enjoy magic without asking, others want desperately to know how it's done. Call me a sicko, but I have made investigating how the big tricks work a very successful hobby.
The bad news: the resulting document is available only in german, and I do not have plans to translate it.
The good news: the newsgroup alt.magic.secrets, which was proposed on alt.config by the controversial Herbert L. Becker and supported heavily by myself is available. Magicians are not amused. Please read the FAQ before posting.
There is now a site in english language that exposes several illusions and here is another one. Also cool is an article by Edgar Allan Poe exposing Maelzel's Chess-Player. The bookstore has four books (by other people) that reveal many secrets. I strongly recommend them.
