Re: Magic in American Theater Magazine.

Neil,
I know, I'm really excited this kind of piece was written for non magicians to understand magic better. Then again, I hope some magicians learn to understand what their magic can be, a bit better too.

Jonathan,

Edward,
Wow, thank you very much! I'm flattered!
