Look for Tony Giorgio's mug in your mailbox very soon...
Now that the cat's out of the bag: I have been sitting on pins & needles waiting for this issue to come out. I was privileged to sit in on much of Richard's interview with Mr. Giorgio and this is one fascinating man. I think his life would make a wonderful book. Magician, actor, prizefighter, gambler and "professional contestant" (I never heard of one until that afternoon and I will not spoil it here in case you, dear reader, have not either) are some of the ways he made a buck. Meeting him and listening to his stories (on and off the record) were very special for me. Thanks again Richard and especially to Mr. Giorgio for allowing me to attend!
