The Looking Glass

edited by Kaufman, Racherbaumer, and Hobbs

Issue number three of The Looking Glass has arrived, and it continues the standard of excellence set by the first two issues. There is great magic offered, including routines from Francis Carlyle ("Seeing at the Fingertips"), Rune Klan (a young Danish magician who contributes a remarkable multiple coin retention vanish), Paul Cummins ("Four-Way Reverse Backfire," one of the highlights of his recent lecture), Alain Nu, Bob Farmer, Roy Walton, Hiro Sakai (who contributes a very weird trick with a hundred dollar bill), Shigeo Futagawa ("Bombs Away," a wonderful origami trick), and others. Jon

Racherbaumer details Don Alan's handling of a card stabbing effect which is a master class in intelligent, commercial routining. There is also the usual editorial "stuff," the most interesting of which is the chance to hear another side (in this case Mr. Hobb's) of the Stanyon's Magic reprint story.

If you get a subscription to Looking Glass you will get the first three issues immediately, and the fourth issue whenever it comes out. (Can you say, "Millennium?") If a second volume happens it will probably come out as a large, single volume, encompassing the entire year. This would free the editorial triumvirate from time constraint pressures. (As if they felt that pressure now.)

Bottom line: This is a high quality magazine, and is well worth your attention. Highly recommended.
