If you subscribed to Genii, you could read it, plus Angelo's one-man issue of Genii, plus every other issue of Genii published since 1936! A one-year sub, digital only, is just $56. That's for 10,000 pages of information.

I chose to take out a Real Secret subscription finally seeing all the good that Richard said about it. But next year for sure !

You can purchase just the double issue Nov-Dec 2012 of Genii magazine that contains Angelo's Zig-Zag finger from Penguinmagic.com as either an instant download pdf for $12, or the print edition for the same price, plus shipping.

Thank you Cyberdave for this information, but a Year subscription is a better choice and very good price compared to 1 single issue. I will read it when I was a subscriber since we gain access to the back issues.

Definitely go for the year subscription stereo. It's well worth it.

Richard did a wonderful job with this Anniversary issue. Fascinating to read the history of what I believe is the best magic magazine period. Looking forward to next month with coverage of the Genii Bash.

Read over the article.
Now, does anyone know if there is a video posted of Angelo performing zig-zag finger.
Tried the old google search and came up empty.

Sadly no Ed. Maybe I should do one. 😊

Hello all!

any description of the effect? I'm curious!

Hi Merlin,

The magician places two fingers of his left hand directly over the middle knuckle of the right middle finger. He gently parts his two fingers so you can see his right middle finger through the gap. Next time he parts his two fingers a gap is clearly seen and part of the middle finger has vanished, despite the left middle fingertip still being in view at all times. Procedure reversed and finger reappears.
