Sign me up for three years. I love going back and reading his old Magicanas. It will include the intermissions, won’t it?

I just renewed my digital Genii subscription (which gives me access to every past issue and all the issues of Magic) for 3 years. The total including shipping was $125.00 and that includes the Magicana book which retails for $150.00 (plus shipping?).

This is a great deal. I don't hesitate to preorder from Richard Kaufman.

I don't say that about everyone.

What Q said.

Might need to change the title of the thread slightly in order to manage our expectations.

I bought a 3-year Genii renewal along with the book last September. It seems fair to ask for an update...

Yes, it does seem fair. We had the entire thing scanned, but there were problems on the end of the person who did it and it all needs to be done again.

To make it worse, many of the pages need to be scanned twice: once for the text, and a second time at a different setting for the photographs.

What's being scanned? The old Genii issues?

Don't you already have a set of scans available in the Genii archive that would suffice for the text pass?

No, the scans in the archive are totally unsuitable for this hi-resolution job.
