Penumbra

Talk about what is being written in other magic publications.

Postby Tom Dobrowolski » 10/03/03 11:36 AM

Just curious if anyone has any information on the next issue of "Penumbra". I believe should be getting one more from the original subscription. So far I've enjoyed the magazine.

I would also be interested to know when the next Penumbra is due out. In addition, has anybody heard anything lately about Mr. Gadfly?

Thanks.

I think they're pretty much finished with the next issue of Penumbra.
And ... Mr. Gadfly has apparently flown the coup.

In an almost totally unrelated thought; Richard, are back issues of the Looking Glass tucked away in your warehouse? And if so, are they available to the hoi polloi?

Take care, Ian

I understand that issue 6 of Penumbra is now at the printer and should be going out by the end of this month. The delay is pretty much due to me and not the editors. My apologies to all concerned or affected.

Hi Mr. Earick, it is great to see you here. I heard that you were away from magic for a while, does your contribution to Penumbra means you're back in business?
I hope so because I am one among many others that greatly appreciate your book and I want to thank you for it.

Yves Tourigny :cool:

Ernest Earick! I once asked Stephen Minch if you could perform all the material in your book, and he said you were spectacular.

May I request a video? I'd love to see you in action.

A DVD of the material in 'By Forces Unseen' would be something else! Please consider it !

Matt, Glen, Yves and Jamie, I certainly appreciate the kind words and exclamation marks. Can't exactly say I'm back, though. Maybe just not quite as gone. Currently there is no video with which we can substantiate the rare veracity lapse on the part of Stephen Minch. Maybe something can be done about that within the next year or so.

Glad to see you here, Mr. Earick. Your book is definitely one of my favorites, although I need a bit of work on some of the items it contains... :D

By the way, the first year's worth of Penumbra has been completed; I've renewed my subscription already. This is about the finest publication in terms of writing, editing, and content of any magic-related 'zine I've come across -- true collector's items.

Congratulations and thanks to Gordon and Bill.

And, it cannot go without saying, the Kaufman-era Genii is an incredible and always improving "mass"-market monthly which simply wouldn't exist without the love and dedication (and insanity) of our host. A terrific chronicle of the state of modern magic.

Of this there is no doubt. For years I would occasionally pick up a Genii at the store, but it was hit or miss, and I didn't keep them. However under Richard Kaufman I not only keep them as reference material, but I quickly signed up for a subscription. Top quality publication with excellent material and editing. I hope it continues for a long time.

Ditto about Genii and mister Kaufman.

I just received My Penumbra #6 and I must say that I am very happy indeed. I will renew my subscription to this fine publication.

The two items by Ernest Earick were IMHO outstanding and I hope that he will pursue his interest in magic and more importantly PUBLISH his materials.

Sorry for appearing ignorant, but how do we subscribe? I've searched the web and can only find back issues at the Magic Warehouse.

Thanks,

Dan

Strange, that information comes directly off the inner cover of a Penumbra issue.

It's clearly printed in the section "How to subscribe".

Well . . . a spectacular Ernest Earick False Cut and an Earick trick based on a John Scarne Poker effect (which requires about 100 Second Deals), a clever Phil Goldstein effect (as if that weren't redundant), the Rosenthal Fan-Tastic Control and Jack Carpenter's Spider Cut, a very clever in-the-hands false cut with some excellent additions by Bill Goodwin.

Penumbra is the leading periodical for serious sleight of hand enthusiasts, and very highly recommended.

Earick, Rosenthal, Goldstein and Carpenter in one issue -- just phenominal.

Any news on when the second volume of Penumbra (#7) will be out? It has almost taken on a Ibidem like publishing schedule, but it is defenitly worth the wait.

Just got a contact with Mr. Goodwin (subscription renewal) and he told me that Penumbra issue seven is going to the printer next week. Rejoice!!!
