Join the world’s largest independent magic magazine at www.geniimagazine.com for as low as $35 a year and get access to tens of thousands of pages of incredible magic.

As a young man, I met and interacted with many close-up magicians. All were males, until I met Lisa Menna at a New York Magic Symposium convention in 1984. A girl who was better than many of the boys, with a bubbly personality and sparkling presentation. And she could do sleight of hand. She also created her own material—things that utilized distinctly feminine props or aspects of her wardrobe such as a card stab with her high-heeled shoe. Starting as a young birthday party magician, then easing into close-up magic, then an illusionist at corporate shows, and a trade-show magician, and pretty much everything else. We’re proud to feature her on our cover this month with Chloe Olewitz doing the deep dive into this wonderful woman's life.

Our secondary story is a long interview with gambling expert and cardman extraordinaire Steve Forte. Norman Beck sat down with Steve on the occasion of the publication of his latest book, Gambling Sleight of Hand.
New columns from Al Schneider, John Bannon, Mike Caveney, and Hannibal will titillate you, while the latest installments of “Magicana” and “The Eye” will thrill you. This month marks Jason Andrew Davidson’s final “Knights at The Magic Castle” column in Genii. He’s done a yeoman job for two years, but wants to give a fresh voice a chance. There will be a new knight reporting from The Magic Castle next month. * We round out the issue with reviews of books, tricks, and videos from Elliott Terral, Danny Orleans, and Nathan Coe Marsh.

I will never support Genii ever again. I like Lisa Menna having met her a few times at the House of Magic in S.F. many years ago. I went to your site to get a new subscription. And got banned for trying to do so! "No soup for you!" Well... O.K. then.
