The Magic Files was started a few months ago by myself and a friend, Ryan Dickey. Its main purpose is to record the contents of magic books, lecture notes, and magazines, to make researching easier and more convenient.
Over the past few weeks, The Magic Files was redesigned and recoded. Please visit http://www.themagicfiles.com to view the new site. Thanks to Jason Alford for a lot of help with the coding.
There are a few things that aren't quite finished. First, images on the magician biography pages. We are waiting for permission from several people before including their images.
Also, the footer of the site is incompatible with the Safari web browser. We are working on resolving this issue.
I know the design is "heavy" and the site may take a while to load if you are using dial-up, so I have created a low-bandwidth version for dial-up users.
The old website can still be viewed at http://www.themagicfiles.com/magic/ for those interested.
Please don't hesitate to shoot me an email with what you think of the site, or reply here. I'd really like to get some feedback, whether it be good or bad. Listening to the visitors will be the only way to keep the site alive.
