Christopher Priest Sayings By Christopher Priest: Every great magic trick consists of three parts or acts. The first part is called Every great magic trick consists of three parts or acts. The first part is called "The Pledge". The magician shows you something ordinary: a deck of cards, a bird or a man. He shows you this object.

That's why every magic trick has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call "The Prestige". — Christopher Priest
