As founding editor of MAGIC Magazine, I would like to welcome you to our website.
The purpose of www.MAGICmagazine.com is to offer a sampling of what is appearing in the current issue of our monthly magazine. There is also our “WebSource” page, that is just that — a resource for web contacts that are appearing in the issue. Also, we will also occasionally “reprint” material that relates to a current issue. I hope that all of this will pique your interest enough to join our ever-growing family of subscribers.
MAGIC is celebrating its 18th year of publication, and we’re very proud of being recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest-selling magic periodical in the world. Each month, our readers receive an average of 116 pages filled with:
FEATURE STORIES that cover a complete spectrum of the art, from profiles of the famous to the obscure, from historical retrospectives to predictions of the future, plus reports on some of the best (and worst) shows you’ll ever see. A couple special issues featured the Top Ten Comedy Acts in Magic and the return of Corinda, author 13 Steps to Mentalism.
IN-DEPTH INTERVIEWS with the most interesting people in our field, such as David Blaine, Steve Valentine, Brett Daniels, Banachek, Charles Reynolds, Martin Gardner, Bob Fitch, David Ben, Penn & Teller, Marvyn Roy... to name a few.
GREAT NEW TRICKS are included each month in our tutorial section. Joshua Jay’s “Talk About Tricks” column offers outstanding close-up effects from some of the most creative minds in magic. In recent months: Daniel Garcia, J.K. Hartman, David Buck, Sebastian Guizol, Curtis Hickman, John Lovick, Diamond Jim Taylor, Doc Dixon, Rune Klan, Ma Maven, Eric Leclerc, and Stephen Tucker.
PLUS up-to-the-minute news, timely and honest product reviews, and editorials on all the hot topics.
We are very proud of the team of Contributing Editors and Columnists that create the “magic” on these pages each month: David Britland, Mike Caveney, David Charvet, Michael Claxton, Peter Duffie, Jason England, Gabe Fajuri, Brad Henderson, Alan Howard, Joshua Jay, Rory Johnston, David Kaye, John Lovick, Jeff McBride, Shawn McMaster, and Mark Nelson.
From all of us here at MAGIC, we invite you to poke around this site and, hopefully... “join the family.”
