You can subscribe to Genii for as little as $35 for a digital subscription and access all 80 years of Genii, over 800 issues, and shortly all 25 years of MAGIC magazine as well.

Mike Pisciotta graces the cover of Genii in April. For almost six years, Mike has been both the mixmaster and close-up magician from Thursday through Sunday at the Hat and Hare Pub in The Magic Castle, building a reputation for his smooth intelligent magic and customer-pleasing demeanor.

Martin Eisele has developed a fascinating product called Vision. It’s an app for your cellphone that’s a tool. It “sees” a shuffled deck which has been spread face up on the table and can deduce all sorts of interesting information, including whether any cards have been removed and exactly which cards they are. You can read all about it in Genii’s April issue.

April also welcomes Alexander de Cova to Genii, joining our many fine contributors with his bi-monthly column “Notizen.” Alexander is extremely well-known throughout Europe and the U.K., but less so in the U.S. We’re going to change that, starting with this month’s effect. It’s creative in the extreme and devilish because the cards are freely chosen. * There’s a dandy effect by Jeff Prace in his column “Left-Handed,” where a bit of origami is performed with a piece of paper wrapped inside a dollar bill, and then … * Bob Read gets stuck in the roundabout of airport hell while trying to visit Ken Klosterman in Cincinnati in “Hidden Treasures.” * A set of props I’ve never seen before appears this month in John Gaughan’s “Chamber of Secrets”—a century-old set of nesting candle-lit lanterns. * Have you always wanted to perform that miracle of mentalism, the Chair Test? A row of chairs are onstage and a spectator freely sits in one of them, and that chair has a sign on the back saying “You will sit in this chair.” It was a staple of David Berglas’s show. This month in “Conjuring” Jim Steinmeyer explains his own clever version. * David Kaye knows more about the brains of kids than adults, which is just right considering his status as a children’s entertainer. This month in “The Expert at the Kids’ Table,” he delves into exactly what children know and precisely when—something parents should know as well! * Jonathan Pendragon delves into the harmony between magician and assistant in “Panmagium.” * Todd Karr dishes up the latest bits o’ news in “The Eye”; Jon Racherbaumer dishes on some interesting books in “On the Slant”; and Brad Henderson takes his first turn at tricks, David Britland reviews books, and Ryan Matney views videos, all in “Light from the Lamp.”
