The Digital version of the December issue will be available on your computer tomorrow (Tuesday) and on the iPad and iPhone on Wednesday. A little late because of my trip to the History Conference in LA.

The paper issue has already been mailed. Details to follow!

My iPad edition showed up last night. Really liked Danny Orleans video supplement to his review column. Hope he keeps it up. No More Genii Speaks, though -- assuming I have to redownload the issue when that is ready?

Scott, you downloaded the iPad issue before they were finished processing the videos. It was done by this morning. Please delete that issue and download it again and you'll find all the videos are there.

And, yes, it should not even be showing up to be downloaded before they've finished processing all the videos, but that's just one of many small problems I'm having with the company who's doing the work.

Richard,

The web version doesn't seem to be working for me today. Any word on that?
The article looks great and I love that the video embeds of Franz are nice and big.

The December issue of Genii, The Conjurors' Magazine, is now in the mail and online for your reading and viewing pleasure. We have more audio and video supplements in our free-to-subscribers digital edition, so make sure to register your email address with us if you're a subscriber so you can take advantage of all we offer every month.

Genii continues its 75th Anniversary year with a really big cover story on a really big show: Franz Harary's performance of the double jumbo version of Mega Magic for 30,000 people in an outdoor stadium in Guangzhou, China. It took 53 trucks to haul it all and featured 22 of his illusions. He was flanked by video screens the size of small cities and, yes, there was also a monsoon. Our digital edition has two videos of the show: one backstage and one of the show itself.

There are five new Tenyo tricks for 2012, with two by Lubor Fiedler. It's one of Tenyo's best line-ups in many years and we have a write-up of all five tricks, plus a video demo of each in our digital edition. Tenyo has also put out five new Tokyo Disney branded items this year, and Ill discuss those as well.

Its been a while since Jim Steinmeyer presented an illusion for you, and in this months Conjuring he explains how to square a circle with a human--an illusion simple to build and perform.

The third installment of Aaron Fisher Teaches Card Magic, a mini-course in magic with the pasteboards, brings you into the world of how to properly hold a break. That may seem like kids stuff, but I cant tell you how many otherwise expert cardmen cant hold a break properly.

David Britlands Cardopolis teaches two effects, Second Sight is the first, a bit of mentalism that packs minutely and plays tremendously, while the second resurrects a little Paul Rosini.

Lost Horizons features Max Mavens Stewart-Jamesian riff on putting lang and guage together with a series of three linguistical mysteries.

John Gaughan shows us a rare and beautiful Hofzinser Rose Mirror in Chamber of Secrets.

This months Magicana completes 11 years of Earle Oakes beautiful drawings appearing in Genii. He illustrated every installment of the column since our first issue in January 1999. Things will not be the same without his lovely lines to illuminate your learning, but carry on we must. David Acer continues his expert stewardship of Magicana with five new routines from Bob Farmer, Jay Sankey, Patrick Duffy, Patrik Kuffs, and Harry Lorayne;

Genii concludes its eleventh year under its current owners and publishers with our fine circle of critics: Eric Mead on books, Danny Orleans on tricks, and Joe M. Turner on videos. Danny Orleans has contributed his second trick-review-supplement video and I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

We also have a video trip to Tenyo's magic shop in Tokyo Disneyland where you can see a demonstration by my friend Yuji Wada, as well as audio columns from Max Maven and Jon Racherbaumer. Jon also contributes a video performance of a very lazy card trick that should fool you.

Arrived last Friday in Somerset, England. Great read, also really enjoyed the Tenyo demos online. My vote for ' Best Genii' of the year is the Thurston issue closely followed by the Erdnase issue. Anyone else have a favorite issue?
