Not yet, but I don't expect mine until sometime around the 22-25th. That's when I usually get it.

The Southside of the Orange Curtain (it helps prevent those Angelinos from unwittingly straying into uncharted territory, where streets that run parallel also intersect) checking in: Martin's smiling face was in my mailbox yesterday.

Ignore my previous post. Martin arrived in my mailbox today. I think he was starting to feel a bit claustrophobic from being stuffed in there.

Do subscribers receive their issues before magic shop drops as a rule? As of 20th we had no delivery. Ofcourse it IS the September issue and people start calling looking for it August 2nd:/

Our order for the Magic Shop has not arrived yet as of 08-20-02...

Postby Dave Shepherd » 08/21/02 03:16 AM

Vienna, Virginia--received it on Monday, August 19. Don't know what took it so long this time. Usually I get it within three or four days of shipping.

It was in good shape. I love the Martin Lewis piece, and the routine by Roberto Giobbi is one that I hope will soon become a buried and forgotten treasure. It looks very good.

Siloam Springs, Arkansas received the Martin Lewis issue on the 20th. After a quick perusal, I need to get an expensive cigar and enjoy a thorough read.

Kudos to Richard and the rest of the staff.

I received mine yesterday in excellent condition. I'm referring to the content, of course. The magazine itself was rolled up to fit in the mailbox. The Martin Lewis article was terrific.

Not yet in Chicago (60606)

Postby Guest » 08/21/02 01:54 PM

Got mine in Lexington MA,8/21/02. The entrie upper right corner was bent, but otherwise fine. There was something I was wondering about, these adds by Houdini's magic shop about not doing drugs, they seem a bit random.

Dorchester, MA, it arrived here this afternoon :o )

Postby Pete McCabe » 08/21/02 03:35 PM

My copy arrived in my mailbox (here in Los Angeles) today.

Well, technically it arrived in Pete Biro's mailbox, and I took it from there. Don't worry -- I'll put it back when mine arrives. I don't want to deprive Pete of his Genii, I just want to make sure he doesn't read it before me.

Almost forgot -- I would not pay extra for better shipping. My copy arrives fine every month.

Mine arrived yesterday (Boise, Idaho). Always in good condition.

Postby Richard Kaufman » 08/21/02 07:23 PM

Due to complaints from subscribers that the new issue of Genii arrives at their local magic shop before their copy arrives at home, we are holding the shipment of magic shop copies a few days longer to try and equalize when everyone receives their issues. I know how I would feel, having paid for 1 to 3 years of a magazine in advance, if it showed up at the shop every month before I got my copy.
BUT, the new issue should arrive at magic shops just a few days later than usual.

Magic shop copies arrived today<8-21>.
Wonderful work on this issue. Worth all the annoying calls of "is it there yet?".

Postby Terry » 08/22/02 04:59 AM

Arrived here on the 20th.

Only 1 complaint - the Jon R & Harry Anderson piece was too short. That was the same problem with Harry's book 'Wise Guy'. Long on tricks and short on Harry and his experiences. Would much rather enjoyed reading more about him than his tricks. Just an opinion.

Received in San Jose California yesterday ( August 22 ) in good condition and might add the Martin Lewis article looks great.

Received my issue here in New Jersey on Wednesday, 8/20.

Would have reported sooner, but Martin was really stuck in the mailbox, couldn't get him out, seemed his legs got stuck on ....

Great issue, the extra packing for the magazine, possibly, but I would have to get more details.

Oh wait...I don't have any doves...

Never mind.

8/23 My issue arrived today in Lombard, IL (a suburb of Chicago), with the plastic bag torn with holes in it and a big scratch across Martin's smiling bald head on the cover. For some reason, I guess someone from the post office decided to stomp on Martin's face before delivering the issue to me. I don't know what the post office has against Martin... I've seen Matin's lecture and he was very friendly.

Is there a delivery upgrade option for my Genii issues to be shrink wrapped in plastic, covered with bubble wrap, and boxed with a bunch of foam packing peanuts, and mailed in bullet proof kevlar box? I'd gladly pay a few exra bucks for that service.

Living in a foreign country, your idea of an extra packaging is very interesting!!
I'm willing to pay for it!
