An article that I wrote about performing magic for natives in the South Pacific will be published by the New York Daily News on Sunday, October 31--Halloween. If you're in the New York area, you can just pick it up on the newsstand. Otherwise, you can access it online at nydailynews.com until the following Saturday.

The article details my trip to Vanuatu, an island chain 800 miles west of Fiji, which is right smack in the middle of nowhere, and where there may still be cannibalism on remote islands. While there, I collected eyewitness stories of real magic by locals and indigenous peoples.

Eventually, I screwed up my courage to perform for native people on Tanna, an island where there is largely no electricity, and where the natives live in the middle of the jungle, cracking coconuts with sharp sticks and catching their lunch with a bow and arrow. It is remote, remote, remote. They all believe in real magic, and I did a whole show for them.

A much longer version of the New York Daily News article (five times longer) will appear in Genii in January.

The URL for this article, published on the NY Daily News Web page, is: http://www.print2webcorp.com/news/nydail......4_05.asp

It's printed too small on the page to read. but perhaps you can enlarge it in your computer in some way. In any event, a much longer magicians' version will be published in Genii in January.
