The Prolix Spirit Writes by Wilbur Kattner (REVISED EDITION)The Prolix Spirit Writes
by Wilbur Kattner

Audiences and critics alike love this mysterious psychic entertainment stunt. A reputation-maker!

Like all good mentalism, it has a simple premise. A female spectator secretly writes a question about her future. Another spectator examines a blank piece of paper, then initials and holds it for safekeeping.

The lady now reads her written question aloud and the performer (that's you!) calls upon the spirits to reply.

The blank, initialed paper is opened by the spectator holding it, who discovers that it's no longer blank! He reads the lengthy reply the spirits have written in answer to the lady spectator's exact question!

No forcing, confederates, special ink formulas or electronics. The reply is both lengthy and legible -- and it actually answers the question asked.

Ready to present at a moment's notice. Suitable for large or small audiences.

Supplied with two routines and a number of variations to enable each performer to suit the effect to their style and type of presentation.
