Hi Richard,

In your latest email, I saw that a new book, "Magicana: The Book" by Charlie Miller is coming out later this year.

I assume it will contain Charlie's columns from the magazine. Could you provide any additional information to what was in the email? Will it contain additional photos or illustrations?

I would also like to hear more about it as my sub is up in August. Will this be fairly similar to the Vernon Touch Book?
Any other info on it will be appreciated. Also, any other book incentives due for near future release? It seems once the Vernon book was out there, it has been the only choice where there used to be a couple choices. Thanks in advance.

I only look at the threads for Genii once a month, hence the delay in replying.
The Magicana book will contain all of the Charlie Miller columns in Genii exactly as they originally appeared. It's exactly what it says it is. And it's going to be great.

We have no plans to reprint any of the earlier books published by Genii.

We lost the first batch of scans. Ugh. We are slowly redoing all the work.

Well worth the wait. Got mine a day or two ago and like it much better than "The Vernon Touch" Actually. Very well put together and very nice looking pages. Almost like having a real magazine.

Received mine today, and it truly was worth the wait!

Richard Kaufman has given yet another gift to the magic world -- kudos!

I extended my subscription to Genii. This is a great deal even though international shipping to New Zealand is expensive and it takes a while.
So looking forward to it arriving in a few weeks?

I got my copy a few months ago and it is gorgeous. A real treat for my coffee table.
