Does anyone think there could be a silver age of magic currently starting? With all the new "magicians" it seems very popular. I can go a day and see two people interested in magic. now that doesn't seem like a lot but that adds up in every school and country. If there is a Silver Age its a Close up Silver Age unlike the mostly stage Golden Age of Magic. Just food for thought.

If there is indeed an upsurge in popularity then we are probably looking at the "Bronze Age", at least so far! If you are positing that the Houdin to Blackstone, Sr. years (a very long stretch!) was the "Golden Age", then the years of Mark Wilson, early Copperfield and Henning through the mid-'90's could quite conceivably be called the "Silver Age."

During those years you had series and specials from those listed through the Gary Oullette's World Greatest Magic specials as well as others. One year toward the end of that span there was approximately 6 or so magic specials during the October/November period. Right after that came the (apparent) downward side of the wave.

Could your currently active "third age" eventually displace those previously mentioned to become a Silver Age? Maybe. Unfortunately, we won't be around to make the call. Such things are always determined by posterity and the current crop is still too new to call.

Or maybe it is a Silver Agre of Magic because most of the magicians have silver hair.

I resemble that remark. Well, only a little, so far.

What, precisely, is this "hair" of which you speak?
