Happy to announce that Jonathan Friedman will be taking the reins of "Magicana" in Genii beginning in February. I want to thank John Guastaferro for doing a great (beyond great) job, and continuing to do a great job through our January issue.

Is there a reason Magicana writers don't last very long?

It's a hard job that takes a lot of time.

You must remember that "Magicana" used to contain just one trick, and the rest was commentary. When I bought Genii, without thinking I just ported over what I had done for the first years in MAGIC magazine, in my column "Inner Workings." Three tricks. And thus it has been.

David Acer did it for a long time. But since then people have changed every few years.

It's a tough job. If it wasn't so time consuming, I'd do it myself. But I have bigger fish to fry in getting the magazine out on time.
