Arrived 10562 NY 10/15.

Great cover - is that a "Juan Tamariz" in the corner?

Richard, GREAT COVER! One of my new favorites. Is it a Ken Knowlton?

Yes, Dave, either Ken Knowles or Ken Knowlton: there is a credit for the cover on the table of contents in the lower left corner, and also at the beginning of the article beside the black and white version (which the artist prefers).

November issue arrived today (10-17-09)in St. Louis. Starting with the very cool cover (cool up close and at arm's length), the contents look great.

Yep, it is Knowlton.

wow...great cover story.

I was beginning to have doubts about Magic as a legitimate art form. Roberto Giobbi restored some, if not all of my faith

It's October 21 and the copy that comes to our house via the same mail service that all of you get in the US arrived today (the November issue that is).

My copy arrived in Roseville, CA yesterday, 10/20. I think that's a record for the Roseville post office. Looks like a great issue but I'm still going through the October issue which only arrived a couple of weeks ago.

Mine hasn't arrived yet. :(

This is the latest for my short Genii subscription life this time around. (I should explain, I previously subscribed to Genii in the late 1970's/early 1980's but then started moving around a lot and they could never catch up to me!)

I guess I'll mosey on down to my post office tomorrow and find out who's reading it before me!

I've not got mine in the mail yet either.

J-Mac, it's just the regional post office sitting on second class mail until they decide to sort and send it further down the pipeline. I used to think it was the local post office, but someone told me it was the big regional centers.

Anyway, no need to worry, your copy will arrive.

Thank you Richard! I received my first few issues right around when everyone else said they did and didn't think much of it. I probably only noticed that this issue is a little late after seeing this thread. I don't want to miss an issue of Genii!

Thanks again,

Jim

Mine are always unpredictable. Some months I get them as soon as Richard posts they have been mailed out and others take a few weeks like this month. But, I think I've always got them before the actual month listed on the cover!

Great issue! I really enjoyed Giobbi's article on Daley. I'd love to see other peoples work on Daley's notebooks also...Future installments??

OK - off to read it now. :)

Huh?? Did I miss something? We know very well that the delay is courtesy of the USPS, not the Publisher. And if you sell it back to the Larsens, a condition of sale should be that Erika moves to the east coast.

Love the cover; love the content (as usual).

And I just have to say it: The Genii's family travels to Crownsville (twice) for the Ren Faire, but Annapolis is off-limits. Go figure . . .

Bill, I loathe driving more than 20 minutes, so the one-hour drive to the Ren fair was a big deal. We went the second time because we had a guest.

Interesting that it seems to have arrived a little later than usual for folks in the US since we mailed it on the same date as usual and via the same system we've always used (USPS). Think how the folks in the UK feel--they're postal system is on strike!

I think it's a very good issue - particularly David Regal's review of my Ultimate Oil and Water. ; )

Postal strike or not, the November issue arrived much earlier than expected today. I've been hoping for a Giobbi cover for a while and I was not disappointed.
