Paul Tomas Harris is an inventor, magician, and writer.[1] Described by the magic magazine Genii (December 1996) as "the most innovative magic mind of our day," Harris is listed in Magic magazine (August 1999) as one of "the 100 [magicians] who shaped the art [of magic] in America".

He has invented many original tricks including: "Linking playing cards", "Bizarre twist", "a solid deck", a torn and restored card effect, coins materializing from mirrors, a card that appears to turn ninety degrees when pushed into the pack, and a torn and restored quarter.[citation needed]

Magic magazine (August 1999) states that "the feats of astonishments that Paul creates and teaches are in the repertoires of a multitude of working pros".[citation needed]

Harris has performed at the Dunes Hotel and at other locations on the Las Vegas Strip and was a technical advisor for David Blaine's Magic Man and Street Magic TV shows. He also contributed writing to the 1987 film Nice Girls Don't Explode.[2]

In 2007, his effect 'LadyBug' won 3rd place in The Magic Woods Awards for Best Trick 2007.[citation needed]
