I want to echo what everybody's been saying not only about this board, but about Genii in general. Magicians in the early 21st century are very lucky to have such a thoughtful and well-produced publication that comes out not only on time, but early!
Richard, I am amazed (and I've expressed my amazement on another list) at your staff's promptness. I filled out a subscription sheet at your booth at IBM, on July 5, I believe. On Saturday, July 21, my August 2001 Genii was in my mailbox, with a great profile of Earl Nelson and that incredible compilation on the Too Perfect Theory. That is, by my count, a sixteen-day turnaround in an age of "allow six to eight weeks for delivery."
I also appreciate your not excluding "magic shop" purchasers of the magazine from this board. I was one of those until I subscribed. My reasons for that were conscientious: I wanted a reason to walk into Al's Magic Shop at least once a month and buy the mag. (I've switched my subscriptions, so now I'll walk into Al's once a month and buy that other magazine, you know, the one from Las Vegas.)
I appreciate your imprecations in the August Genii Speaks that folks should walk into their local shop every now and again and buy something. Our fair city would be much poorer without Al and Stan Cohen and Al's Magic.
Keep up the great work!
