The End Times Magazine

Postby Ryan Matney » April 20th, 2018, 6:24 am

Everyone ready?

Announcing a new quarterly close-up magic magazine!

In the tradition of such harbingers of doom and gloom like, "The Pallbearer's Review," "Epilogue," and "Apocalypse" comes the "The End Times," a new journal of close-up magic.

While you are waiting for the zombie king to rise up and command his army of undead to suck your brains out through your ear with a soda straw, how will you pass the time?

We've got you covered with a quarterly offering of fresh fantasy from Ryan Matney and friends.

You will receive four big issues a year, each one 70 pages and featuring 6-8 brand new close-up miracles by a host of talented doomsday-ready magicians. Plus, as much crazy as we can cram in.

The first issue goes into the mail in just two weeks and features:

"Dislocation" by Ryan Matney, a quick, and amazing, single card across type thingy that is perfect entertainment when you are dislocated from your home and sleeping under the stars. Sounds nice? It won't be.

"When Charlie met Johann" by Tony Miller, a Royal Marriages in which the spectator does all the shuffling and all the cutting and somehow performs the entire trick by themselves leaving you free to stock your bomb shelter with canned goods in case the supermarkets are being looted.

"Direct Ace Cutting" by Nathan Colwell, a super slick and modern version of the "Spectator Cuts the Aces" for those difficult times when you need to impress the local cannibals to gain a fresh water supply.

and MORE!

We will only be printing what we need of this secret publication as this information is just for the savvy. So, subscribe now to avoid being a sad lad on judgment day.

We know you want it, so let's bargain:

4 issues a year, PLUS a special surprise BONUS gift for the first 50 subscribers, (to be mailed with one of the issues) and a couple of surprises along the way, all shipped to your door in a plain brown package for only $100.

BUT, for the next two weeks, you can subscribe for the special discounted price of $75.00! Price goes up in just two weeks and I'll be damned if it will ever come back down, that's the sign 'o the times.

Don't delay! Time is running out for all of us!

I'm very pleased to announce that I have made a special arrangement with our friends at Kaymar Magic and can now offer subscriptions to my new magazine, "The End Times" for customers in the UK and Europe at a special rate.

During the presale offer, a subscription in the UK/Europe is only $95. Price goes up $120 in two weeks.

Subscriptions are adding up but there's still time to get the special bonus gift for early subscribers.

and, Richard, you are signed up!

Only one more week to take advantage of the discounted price!

As I am only printing what I sell here, there won't be extras lying around. If you miss out on subscribing, you will be caught out in the rain. Alone. Sad.


And crying.

So I just subscribed (10:23 p.m. local time) and was hit for the full $100, not $75. What's the deal?

You are welcome, Duane. :)

There are only 5 (!!!) special bonus gifts left. The next five people to subscribe get it and that is all.

I will reveal this will be something I'll be marketing separately this year for a pretty good price, but five more subscribers to "The End Times" get it free upon its release.

Pre-pub is over and the first issue goes into the mail the end of this week.

An update: had a small snag that pushed the mailing of the first issue back. (Sorry, I'm new to periodicals) Everything is good now and first issues are currently being processed, printed, and mailed for all subscribers.

Its 70 pages, NINE great tricks, 14K words, and 144 photos! And that is what you are getting 4 times a year!

There's several forum members that have subscribed so feel free to share your comments on the material when you have had a chance to review the book.

Subscribe today at http://ryanmatneymagic.com/index.php/product/the-end-times-magazine/ and get the first issue shipped to you immediately.

The second issue is due in August. I already have the secret line-up and I'll give you a small tease. How about a super easy, super deceptive, never before revealed, card control by Xavier Spade? It will be revealed in August but only for subscribers of The End Times.

There are currently 3 special gift packages remaining, so don't delay if you don't want to miss it.

It would seem I am still learning the shopping cart program I am using. It turns out I miscounted and there are FOUR bonus gifts remaining.

There will still be some surprises and extra stuff but Once I get to 50, THIS secret thing won't be offered again.

Don't delay. I'll update here when there are gone.

I have decided to release a few individual copies of The End Times Book One.

I know $100 for a suscription is a lot right now for many. So how about this; If you purchase the first issue from me, read it, and then want to subscribe to get the full monty, I will subtract the cost of the first issue when you subscribe so you don't lose any money.

It's shipping now and can be purchased here:

The surprise bonus gift may be gone, but don't despair, there is still lots of fun in store for subscribers. Loads of great tricks and surprises. And, a new offer: subscribe today to The End Times and get your choice of one of my acclaimed paperbacks FREE and mailed with your first issue.
You can choose one from the following titles, “Ultramodern” 1, 2, or 3 – “Bada-Bing!” Or “Distilled.” Sorry, “Spoiler Alert” is not part of the promotion.
Just write your choice in the comment box when you order your subscription. That's it!

A few people, including a notable publisher, have told me that my new magic magazine is too expensive at $100.

Well, yeah, it is expensive.

But we feel it keeps out the riff-raff and the merely curious. Not everyone can survive in the end times. And it's worth paying a little more for some killer tricks you won't find anywhere else. And unlike those other magazines, you won't be bored to tears by interviews and articles. What you get with the End Times is wall to wall tricks, baby. Where else you gonna find a trick by Zombie Dead Marlo?

That and I'm planning to buy a new Lear jet with the proceeds and those things ain't cheap.

So subscribe today or get left behind. (Disclosure: I'm leaving everyone behind when I get my jet)

Just received the following unsolicited comment from John Carey, one of my favorite card magic creators. Thanks, John!

"Well so far I’ve studied and learned 3 killers in this first issue! Ryan’s Dislocation effect is a beautiful card to a number hybrid that I think many will like and do.

Cerebral Ballsy is a great mental effect where the construction is very elegant and the payoff very strong. Finally Anthony Millers When Charlie met Johann is a simply brilliant hands off approach to the classic Royal Marriages effect.

Well done Ryan Matney!!!"
