Several special interest magazines have crossed the review desk in recent months. Now is a good time to bring them to your attention.
Fizbin bills itself as a magazine "For and By the Young Magician." The three issues I have on hand feature profiles of Eric DeCamps, Jeff McBride, and Wendel Gibson as well as tricks, reviews, and other stuff of interest to the teen set.
The Illusionist is "The International Journal of Stage Magic and Grand Illusion." This quarterly publication has been in existence for over four years and contains all kinds of information of interest to you guys who do the big box tricks. There are interviews with luminaries such as Jim Steinmeyer, Mark Wilson, Rand Woodbury, Paul Osborne, Paul Daniels, and Harry Blackstone, Jr. There are illusions plans, news, and reviews. If illusions are your thing, this magazine is well worth a look.
Finally, if Bizarre magick is your cup of tea, you might want to check out The Altar Flame, which is published quarterly and is now in its fifth year. The issue I have is nicely produced and is full of tricks.
