Over the (now completed) 13 years of publication we have been honoured to feature many of the world’s greatest magicians on our covers, and so it is again with issue 78 as we welcome the legend that is, Bill Malone! Deputy Editor Graham Hey got to sit down with the great man and get Bill’s story first hand and if you don’t know much about his background, we’re sure you will find it really interesting.
We also talk to two of the UK’s best close uppers, Gary Jones and Paul Gordon. Each has carved out an enviable niche for themselves in magic, Gary with his creative output and top performing skills, Paul with his lectures and wonderful collection of marketed card tomes. We are delighted to celebrate their achievements and to get their thoughts this time.
So, what else can we tempt you with in order to distract you from your turkey? Well, the Masterclass has routines for close up and stand up, an extensive Review Corner demonstrates that our reviewers sometimes really like things, but sometimes absolutely do not (!), we get to talk to Adrien Brody, the magic enthusiast who received an Emmy nomination for his portrayal of Houdini in a recent film, and in the final part of Ask Christopher, the top US kid show entertainer gives detailed answers to two more relevant questions on children’s entertainment.
