PO Box 36068
Los Angeles, CA 90036
Tel: (213) 935-2848

Color cover, 80 pages an issue. The largest circulation of any magazine.
Everyone should get this just for the ads, as most items are advertized
here. Some columns are useless. I currently enjoy "The Giorgio Letters"
which describes how the Erdnase book is a lot of bull. Jamy Ian Swiss is
the current book reviewer.

At present, the price of a one-year subscription for the U.S., Canada or
Mexico is $30; two years $55. Contact them for information about overseas

Similar to Genii (actually - they are competitors) Color cover and color
inside. Columns by Paul Gertner (performance tips), Richard Kaufman (editor
of the magic section), and reviews by Mike Weber.

In my (st922964@pip.cc.brandeis) opinion, is certainly the BEST magic

features very interesting articles by the likes of Stan Allen and Michael

This is definitely not for young people because of the language,
but it is a great and funny monthly. Mostly great card stuff plus some other
good items. Lots of clever, very usable stuff.
