The June issue of Genii, the greatest magazine devoted to magic and magicians on the planet (no need for modesty here :) ) is now starting to arrive in mailboxes. Jump to the bottom to find out how to get the three DVD set "Houdini The Movie Star" for 50% when you subscribe or renew.

Our cover story this month is on the fabulously funny John Archer, ex policeman (!), and ukulele-playing magician. Everybody loves his award-winning performances, and he's a great guy, too. Dustin Stinett has taken my rambling interview and done it up nicely.

Craig Dickens is one of those guys behind the scenes whom you haven't heard much about, but is busy creating and building illusions used by the stars. Jim Steinmeyer visited Craig in his shop and reveals some of the secrets behind the curtain. Craig's a cool guy, and he's got that pirate thing going.

There's been a lot of talk and writing within the past year about the "science of magic," with articles in the New York Times and other periodicals and books that illustrate how scientists are starting to study magic and force it to fit their preconceived notions. Hooey says Dr. Peter Lamont, and he tells you why in his essay "Where Science and Magic Meet."

Our columnists include Tom Stone, who writes about what you need to add to your "Thespian Toolbox"

Paul Osborne, who explains a way to whisk someone far away in "The Great Escape"

David Britland teaches a superb bit of mentalism in "The Chalice from the Palace"

Jim Steinmeyer's "Vampire Crossing" revives the old compass trick into something new that you can actually perform without feeling silly

David Acer presents a "Magicana" of terrific close-up magic including routines from Harry Lorayne, Jim Swain, Scott Strange, and Peter Lamont

Jon Racherbaumer and I prattle on in our usual columns "On the Slant" and "Genii Speaks"

Books, tricks, and videos get the once over from David Britland, David Oliver, and Joe M. Turner.

And we've got a new offer for anyone who wants to subscribe or renew: the three-DVD set "Houdini The Movie Star" from Kino is now available from us for a limited time for 50% off the retail price of $40. YOU pay only $20, postpaid anywhere in the US. (Add $5 postage for Canada and $11 postage anywhere else in the world.) This 3 DVD set includes most of the surviving films and footage of Houdini and is only marked down to $36 on amazon.com, so our price is a whopping $15 less. We don't sell it separately: subscribe today or renew your existing subscription for one year and you can receive this extraordinary value.

Remember that the price of Genii drops from the $6 cover price to only $4.50 per issue when you subscribe for one year AND you get a free copy of the Harry Anderson/Jon Racherbaumer 32-page Jinx). Please visit the Genii website and subscribe today at www.geniimagazine.com.

Just curious - was "The Thespian Toolbox" article useful, or too vague and abstract?
