I would like to subscribe to a magazine devoted to mental magic. What would you recommend?

Thanks for your help,
Marcus

Alas, there are none in regularly available circulation. SYZYGY was the most recent to taper off; I just heard rumor that the remaining issues of the current volume are soon to be published as one massive issue.

Mark Strivings posted a while back about one he is planning to start, but it's not in publication yet.

The only other two I know of are only distributed to the members of private organizations (Center Tear and Vibrations).

...then there's Ted Lesley's 'Mind & Magic' - but I'm not sure how regularly this is published?

Shame that all the regular mags seem to have dwindled away.... Smile

Although I understand that Lior meant it in an entirely different sense (with which I do not disagree), it's probably true that Genii is the best publicly-available American magazine for mentalists, as it features occasional columns by the incomparable Barrie Richardson, which are always a treat. And Bob Farmer oftens discusses mentalist-appropiate topics as well.

In the U.K., there's Club 71, good for essentially the same reason.

But most mentalists (myself included) publish privately, for a variety of reasons.

And of course Phil Goldstein often has some items in Genii as well :o)

I was just wondering, if you were going to produce a mentalism magazine, lets say an e-zine, what would you like to see in it.

The most important thing 'I'd like to see is my name on subscription checks.
But seriously folks, I'd like to see most of it devoted to other than effects. Ideas for marketing, theories, things about luminaries
maybe onew effect per issue. Bonus two effects

Hi Marcus,

Might be worth your while trying to get your hands on Water's Mind Myth and Magic published as a bound compilation.
