On February 5, 1995 Kevin King started an interesting project: a free magic magazine which every other Sunday was faxed to the subscribers around the world. Each issue contained news, gossip, rumors, jokes, and magic. MagiFax ran for 16 issues, ceasing publication on September 17, 1995. For those of you who were not subscribers, Kevin has assembled the 16 issues in an unassuming and inexpensive format.
The layout of the magazine can be most kindly described as a nightmare, but remember that the original intent was to pack as much stuff as possible onto one 11 x14 inch piece of paper. (After the first three issues, Kevin published the magazine on two 8 ^ x 11 sheets. These first three issues have been reduced to 8 ^ x 11, which doesn't help the layout any.)
However, the layout is not particularly important. What is important is that you'll find some very good tricks here, from contributors such as Harry Riser, Phil Goldstein, Randy DeMarco, and Dan Garrett. The DeMarco and Garrett items are especially good, and well worth your attention.
MagiFax is fun, it's cheap, and it's worth checking out.
