The June Issue of Genii is Now Live Online

Postby Richard Kaufman » May 15th, 2014, 4:59 pm

The digital version of the June issue of Genii is now live online for computer users, and will be live later tonight or tomorrow for those with tablets and smartphones.

Our cover story is a unique perspective by Luis de Matos on his involvement in the touring show The Illusionists 2.0, which was shaken by the apparent suicide of one of The Hypnotist, Dr. Scott Lewis. With half a dozen videos it's a great article.

David Regal found a small gem of a show in San Francisco starring Peter Morrison in a theater that seats only 45! Read all about "The Marrakech Magic Man."

We have full coverage of the annual Academy of Magical Arts Awards show by Dustin Stinett and Kari Hendler, and then Dustin interviews Erika Larsen, new President of the AMA.

In addition to my Genii Speaks video and the many videos in our cover story, Jim Steinmeyer pinch hits for Max Maven and offers an audio column in which he'll Impuzzle you with a trick you'll perform on yourself. Jon Racherbaumer also teaches a nifty trick in his audio supplement to On the Slant. We also have a video of a terrific "Copper Silver Brass" routine from Japanese magician Jindai Nishikawa, and Ian Kendall explains it in Magicana, along with a trick by J,K. Hartman and Jon Racherbaumer brings you Tokyo Workshop and an effect using silks and spongeballs by Kazu Katayama.

Eugene Burger's new column is as always accompanied by a video, as is Dani DaOrtiz's excellent effect "More Imaginary Dice" in his DaOrtiz ala Carte! Jim Steinmeyer's Conjuring returns with an excellent effect using spectators' business cards; David Britland returns with a Cardopolis marginally about Albert Einstein; Max Maven digs deep to bring us an excellent mental effect; John Gaughan's Chamber of Secrets has some weird thing about lamps.

A great issue ends with reviews in Light from the Lamp by Eric Mead, David Oliver, and Joe M. Turner.
Enjoy!

Your *first* version of Lubor's Box is one of the funniest things I've seen in a while. You only failed to say, "Ta da!" Thanks for running that.

That was hilarious.

I can see why you were chosen to write the Klutz Book of Magic!

Joe, I didn't write "Klutz." Wish I had: would have made a lot of money. I wrote "Knack Magic Tricks."

I debated about leaving in my screw-ups when trying to perform Lubor's trick--I mean, how embarrassing that I messed it up TWICE. Jeez!

Article idea.

Start a 'Buried in Print' column - but only with stuff from old issues of Genii.

Gives people something to look out for when they dive in the online archives.

A bit like the old 'Buried in Tarbell' column that used to be around.
