June - Stan Allen

Postby Bill Marquardt » June 8th, 2015, 2:25 pm

I just wanted to say that I finally got around to reading Dustin's interview and story of Stan Allen. Great article. I was unaware of the connections between MAGIC and Genii prior to reading the piece. Reading how Stan progressed in his career and became the publisher of MAGIC was quite interesting. It is fortunate for us to have two fantastic yet different magazines to read every month.

Let's hope that Stan reciprocates with a feature on Mr. Kaufman in the near future.

Thanks, Bill. I thought Dustin did a great job as well. Stan had never been on the cover of Genii before, but I have been on the cover of MAGIC already. Used to be skinny and had a moustache back then!

Great article! Just got round to reading it.

Just curious what the reason for the falling out was? I wonder if it was to do with all the best writers from MAGIC coming over to GENII?

Good point.

Must be something else then.

I had a trick in MAGIC a couple of years ago. And I can only imagine there was a desperate tug of war over it between the two magazines.

Yeah, that must be it! lol

In all seriousness, it is up to Richard to answer that IF he wants to. But the article does allude to the fact that the rift was two-sided and was not just about any one thing.

Thanks to everyone for the kind words.

Was it anything to do with the Christian Chelman cover story incident?

I am guessing not?

Nothing to do with Chelman.
