MAGIC Magazine September 2014 Cover
The September 2014 issue ofMAGIC Magazine drops into the mail on Monday, August 18th. The digital edition, however, is already waiting for you on MyBookshelf. Click here to log in and start reading.

This month, I’m again excited to be featuring stories about magicians you might not be familiar with: Blake Vogt, Mel Mellers, and H.P. Lovecraft. Their journeys are both diverse and fascinating. We’re also covering Houdini, the new miniseries starring Adrien Brody, and Jason Latimer’s new show,Perception: See Beyond the Illusion. If you feel like celebrating, we’ve got stories on Magic Inc’s fifty years in one location, the fortieth Tannen’s Magic Camp, and a new card-throwing record set by a Lithuanian magician. And if you’re looking to learn a new trick or two, you’re in luck. Blake Vogt, Steve Reynolds, Ian Rowland, and Mike Bent are on board this month. It’s all in the September issue — and a lot more!

Thanks for choosing MAGIC as your magazine…
