Masao Atsukawa, one of the giants of Japanese close-up magic (and one of the creators featured in my book Five Times Five: Japan) has died at age 76. One of Tenkai's students, Atsukawa was a soft-spoken and gentle man, which contrasted with his work as a well-known crime novelist. He was a tremendously creative person, with several magic books to his credit.
