The Magicians Yearbook 1997

edited by Anthony Owen

Once again, Anthony Owen and friends give us an interesting review of 1996 in this yearbook from Dynamic FX. Information is slanted toward the U.K. (which is as it should be since this is a British publication), and there is a section of tricks from such well-known creators as Phil Goldstein, Steve "I take my coffee black" Beam, Angelo Carbone, Aldo Colombini, Peter Duffie, and John Lenahan.

But the focus of this book is the year in review, and there lots of reviews: 13 book reviews, 19 trick reviews, and 25 video reviews. There are also awards given, for such categories as Best Book Value for the Money, Best Overall Book, and so forth. The Yearbook staff also reviewed current magic magazines and gave awards in four categories. All of us here at MAGIC are pleased and proud to have won in three of the four categories. Thanks, guys.

The Yearbook also contains a large listing of agents, broadcasting companies, magic dealers, magic events, and lectures. Again, the focus is on the U.K.

You should know that this is not a beautifully produced book, but the emphasis is on information rather than production values. I enjoyed this Yearbook just as much as I liked last year's edition, and I think that you'll enjoy it, too.
