I remember talk late last year (as I subscribed) that Genii was acquiring the digital rights to Magic Magazine and we, as digital subscribers to Genii would be getting access to all of the past issues of Magic too. I thought I remembered hearing that it would happen late spring, possibly summer. Did I hear or understand this wrong? or is there any info as to what is holding it up? I am not complaining. I am very happy with my Genii Subscription as it is but I am curious. Thanks.

It was supposed to be done by now. Not sure what the delay is: the company we use for all of this has to add all the pages to a new area on our digital site. Hope it's soon! All 301 issues of MAGIC will be available FREE of charge for subscribers to Genii in our digital archive within the next month or two.


Some Magic Magazine issues are already available in the app. They have been available since early August 2017.

I noticed last night that at least some of the Magic Magazine issues are now showing up in the IPad app. Don't see them on the web page yet.

For some reason the company doing this for us is having problems getting MAGIC to show up.
Yes, some are in the app, but I did not want to make the official announcement until all 25 years are up.


You're welcome.

I have no idea why the entire file of MAGIC is not online yet. For some reason this is proving to be challenging to the company we use to do this.

I saw where some were saying the iPhone / iPad version had several and went to mine to check. They are definitely several on the I-versions. I was using a large galaxy tablet generally but now I am using my iPad mini to check a few of the Magic issues out. It looks like they will get there eventually. Thanks for the updates.

Strange thing,, even though my app was show as up to date, after uninstalling the app and reinstalling it, magic issues now show. So if your still having issues I suggest trying that.

But far from all issues of MAGIC are showing. I am trying very hard to get a concrete answer from the company I use as to why this is the case. Believe me, I am more frustrated than you!

I tried reinstalling the android app and to my surprise (some) Magic issues showed up.

Of the 301 issues somewhere only around 75-ish are visible/accessible. There doesn't seem any rhyme or reason to it, as the issues are scattered throughout the years. With one exception, all are older than January 2012.

And now, the google play store pushed out an update to the genii app and that seems to be even more busted. Even the main Genii issues are affected and I often can't switch to an older issue or the current issue hangs up.

Tried clearing the data/cache/rebooting/uninstalling/re-installing/loaded on a separate android tablet, etc. and it's very frustrating. My tablet uses completely stock Android 6.0.

It looks like some of them are there, but it's just the covers because when I click on them, there's what looks like a placeholder but no actual content on the page. As others have noted, there's no consistency and no logical rhyme or reason to what's there.

Can anyone verify that there's any content in any of the Magic back issues, or is it just the cover and a few pages only?

I have read some MAGIC issues on the webpage, so there is some content. However it loads the pages supper slow and webpage tends to crash, so I guess it is still in development and Richard does not announce it officially. The Genii app on Android works a little bit better and there is more issues (about 70 covers, but not all of them are working). However the scan (rendering?) quality is far worse than Genii issues (even the old ones).

Guessing everyone knows but what the hell, maybe there will be someone that doesn't. Issues of MAGIC are now available! These along with Genii should keep us busy at least until we resubscribe. Smile Thanks to Richard Kaufman and Stan Allen for making this possible!
