A Stone's Throw ... July Issue of Genii on its Way to You

Postby Richard Kaufman » June 11th, 2010, 4:34 pm

Our July issue with Mr. Tom Stone on the cover has left the printer and should shortly start reaching the first batch of subscribers.

Max Maven writes the cover story on the Swedish Stone, with Stephen Minch doing a secondary story on the production of Tom's new book Vortex, published by Hermetic Press.

Tom Stone contributes four tricks and three essays:
"Amore Hotel"
No Script is Also a Script
"Sentient Sand"
The Dunning-Kruger Effect
"Oh No! Thimbles"
You are Brilliant!
"Glitching the Aces"

Dustin Stinett brings you the only full coverage of the 42nd Academy of Magical Arts Awards Show to be published in our field, accompanied by the beautiful photos of Kari Hendler.

Max Maven eulogizes our old friend Martin Gardner.

Our columnists this month include:

Roberto Giobbi, and in his "Genii Session" he delves once more into the mysteries of the Deck Switch.

Jim Steinmeyer, and in his "Conjuring" he divulges a great stand-up "Cards Across" he calls "Zens Koan."

Eugene Burger, and in his "Showmanship Interviews" he speaks with Tobias Beckwith, manager of Jeff McBride and Marco Tempest.

Richard Kaufman (oh, that's me) and Jon Racherbaumer chit-chat in their usual fashion in "Genii Speaks" and "On the Slant."

Danny Orleans reviews tricks, including Will Houstoun's new "Freak," which is breaking fingers around the world.

Dustin Stinett reviews DVDs, including a new title by Bob White, and and Ponta the Smith's "Sick," which is also breaking fingers around the world, but for a different reason.

Jamy Ian Swiss reviews books, including one he liked very much on audience management by Gay Ljungberg.

And we've got a great 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 new subscribers 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.

Arrived yesterday, 6/14 in NY 10562.

Perhaps it's a thoughtful silence as folks read and consider the ideas and examples?

Haven't received it here yet.
Does the back cover have the $2.00 levitation that's advertised on a couple other mags' back covers?
And if it is, my answer is I don't know.

Received in Auckland, New Zealand on Wednesday 23 June - very fast delivery this month.

While on the subject of fast postal service, on Monday received Tom Stones excellent book "Vortex", only three working days after being sent by USPS Priority Mail from the States
