The December 2023 Issue of Genii is Now Live Online

Postby Richard Kaufman » November 20th, 2023, 3:45 pm


For only $35 (which just happens to be the cost of a one year digital subscription to Genii, The Conjurors’ Magazine, you can also visit the world-famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, California!
In this issue you will find a cover story about the unique magician Jeanette Andrews, written by Chloe Olewitz. Jeanette’s intellectual art-based approach to the shows she does in museums and art galleries is tremendously different.
Our secondary story focuses on the traveling show Champions of Magic, which began its journey in the U.K. in 2013 and has been touring the U.S.A. since 2017. The show is the brainchild of Alex Jarrett, who even now is only 32 years of age. Amazing!
Our obituaries this month include Dan Garrett, Larry Becker, Darwin Ortiz, and Dick Gustafson.
In this gap month before Jamy Ian Swiss begins his work as editor of “Magician,” I step in with a holiday gift from Larry Jennings: a “Magicana” composed of three previously-unpublished routines pulled from what I’ve already written for his next book Mr. Jennings Takes it Tough.
Jim Steinmeyer reveals a new creation, an opening routine for mentalists, in “Conjuring.”
Jon Racherbaumer digs out a red/blue miracle in “Exhumations.”
Krystyn Lambert ponders beautiful moments of astonishment in “Stage as Studio.”
Jonathan Freedman explains a clever prediction written on a card box in “WWPD.”
David Regal divulges a new way to do an old thing, in a good routine, in “Material Concessions.”
John Bannon teaches a short poker deal in “Dealing with It.”
Vanessa Armstrong gives the newsy bits in “The Eye,” where you can learn all about the Magic Castle style lounge, bar, and performance space on the newest ship in the Princess Cruise line, as well as the next Magic Castle Conjurer’s Cruise which will depart from Ft. Lauderdale in November 2024—just about a year from now.
Shawn McMaster shares recent AMA’s recent happenings in “Knights at The Magic Castle.”
And to wrap up the issue we have reviews of books, videos, and tricks from Nathan Coe Marsh, Suzanne, and Ryan Plunkett.
