The February issue of Genii should start arriving in your homes. My copy by second-class arrived today. You will find a great article about Herb Zarrow by David Ben on our cover, with the first correct (that is, most complete) description of the Zarrow shuffle ever published, plus a history of false shuffles and the publication of letters between Herb Zarrow and Ed Marlo from the late 1950s that will put to rest any further discussion of the so-called Shank Shuffle.
In addition, we have articles on Teller's new production of Shakespeare's Macbeth, opening in Washington DC shortly; a piece on the Master of Illusion software for the Nintendo DS game system (a remarkable thing--really); and a lovely piece by Jim Steinmeyer on the subject of what's going on at Magic Inc. in Chicago. Plus all the usual.
Please let me know when you receive your copy (or when you get it from your dealer) and what you think.
I do realize that our cover story is a bit long and specialized, but it's something that really needs to be told, and a record that needs to be set straight, at long last.
