Val Evans (1896-1981), born Valentine Bagley Evans, created many effects including "An Invitation to Lunch", a version of Rising Cards and the "Stop Trick" (which is sold by Vikings/Collector's Workshop).
Evans, a veteran of World War I, was a barker before he was stricken with agoraphobia and would not leave home to go outside, which ended his performing career.
