Subscribe now at www.geniimagazine.com and receive 12 monthly issues of Genii for as low as $35. And if you are a subscriber you have access to all back issues of Genii from 1936 to the present, as well as all 300 back issues of MAGIC magazine, in our online archive at no additional cost.

You’re a professional magician, sideshow artist, children’s entertainer, bubble performer, and you’ve been plugging along under the radar for over a decade. Then one day a character forms in your mind, and on another day that character emerges onstage with a life of its own, and suddenly your live is transformed. That’s the story of Carisa Hendrix, on our cover this month, whose creation of “Lucy Darling” has taken her to many new gigs around the world.

Richard Wiseman, professor and all-around cool guy, has released a new mindreading comic book with interesting stories about famous magicians of the past (“Hocus Pocus is a new ongoing comic series about magic, history, psychology, and the paranormal”), and we have an article and lengthy excerpt for you this month.

Long time beloved Magic Castle fixture Joan Lawton died on April 5th. She was fondly remembered for her many kindnesses and endless work on behalf of the Academy of Magical Arts and its membership. Her obituary by Dustin Stinett appears in our issue.

Our columnists this month include John Bannon cause Jokers and Queens to converge in “Dealing with It”; Mike Caveney exhumes a 1912 letter from Owen Clark to Fred Culpitt in “Classic Correspondence”; Hannibal deals with the good and the bad in “Happiness is the Road; Jon Racherbaumer does a little bit of math and counts down in the second installment of his new bit of fun “Exhumations”; and a new column debuts this month, written by one of our premier female magicians Krystyn Lambert. Titled “Stage as Studio,” it’s different than the usual trick-based columns we have, and I hope you enjoy it.

Chloe Olewitz brings you news in “The Eye”; Jonathan Friedman brings you tricks in “Magicana”; and we have reviews of tricks, books, and videos with Brad Henderson, Tom Frame, and Bill Wells.

Will the video be added later or was the "watch icon" for this column a typo?

Found out after going to print that there was no acceptable video.
