Re: Counting Down ...

What about people who have only just subscribed to Genii - as in within the last month?

Do we need to send in our email address as well, or is it taken from the subscription details?

Re: International Convention

Richard,

There are a few names, but until they are confirmed nothing more can be said... These are the two that Noel released from stage.

Also - I meant the Berglas award for promoting Magic... not as I wrote "for promoting Berglas". It's been a long week.

Re: New Steinmeyer/Caveney History of Magic Book Almost Shipping

Had mine in the UK for two weeks now - well packaged and has it's own card outer carrycase - it's heavy you'll need it.

My postman now officially hates me, and was amused when he found out it was a book!

Re: Blackpool vs Southern England Magic -- War of the Wizards

But will the Southern convention have "Flower Arranging" and "Jam & preserve making" for the ladies to attend whilst their husbands are attending lectures on magic stuff?

You must admit, Derek Lever does have the edge with that!

Re: Why You Should Subscribe to Genii if You Want Us To Stay in Business

Mrgoat, I'm working on a print cost per copy of about 0.98 for a 72pp full color A4 magazine. Add to that a cost of about 0.65 for postage and wrap. so not too bad purchase-wise. Also we pay a slight premium for alcohol-free inks and sustainable paper, but it's in line with our ethic. As to being le...

Re: Why You Should Subscribe to Genii if You Want Us To Stay in Business

We make no money from copies sold in shops because we are forced to sell them at 50% off retail because that's what MAGIC charges. So with a print run of 6,000 plus, the printing cost per issue is $3 each? Just curious. I would imagine that is about the cost per copy to print, pack and distribute, ...

Re: Discussing a Disgusting Habit—Cigarettes and Magic

I suppose it depends on where you work... And the audience you work to. I work to a lot of "Rock" audiences, many of whom smoke. I've often met a number of them whilst outside having a smoke before my set/act. Having suffered a public venue smoking ban in the UK for the last year, I always...

Hi, I was recently looking about on one of those random web crawls, and came across an effect where you can (seeminly) remember any page from a magazine called out by an audience member. If I recall correctly any magazine can be used, including the company's promotional literature.... Stupid thing I...
