Subscribers! The digital version of the March 2012 issue of Genii is now live online for your computer: desktop or laptop. (The iPad and iPhone editions should be ready late today or tomorrow.) And remember, it's FREE for all subscribers.
Featured this month is Jonathan Levit on the cover in a recreation of his performance of Howard Thurston as conceived and directed by Jim Steinmeyer. David Regal tells the tale. A video of the recreation of Thurston's Sawing a Woman in Half is included.
We also have a story by Jim Steinmeyer on the restoration of The Magic Castle after its October fire, and a video tour of the restoration led by AMA Vice President Erika Larsen.
The Asian Magicians Association Convention is always fun, this time it was held in Hong Kong and was the site of the FISM Asia competition. Tim Ellis was a performer and judge and also our correspondent.
This month marks the debut of our new columnist, Dani DaOrtiz. He'll perform his trick for you on video in each column, and then the explanation appears in the text. The perfect wedding of new technology and old.
The rest of the issue contains our usual excellent line up (can you tell I'm busy working on the April issue? I don't have time to write the rest of this!). So log in and enjoy the printed material, along with audio columns from Max Maven and Jon Racherbaumer (this month teaching a variation of Stewart James's "Miraskill."
