Our cover star is well known mentalist Colin McLeod. His exposure comes from performing everywhere from the Edinburgh Fringe right through to national TV.
His star looks set for a continued sharp climb for some time to come as you will understand when you read our feature on him.
So, from someone you will almost certainly know to others who may not be so familiar. How about Swedish female magician Caroline Ravn, for instance? Or Dutch packet trick maestro Peter Pellikaan? Or up and coming star from Singapore Khor Kiat? Or YouTube sensation Neil Henry? Yep, we scour the world in search of interesting people to lay before you.
Ever had a table or group of spectators at a walkabout gig refuse your offer to perform for them? We've all had that occasionally, but if you find it occurs quite often, our informational article on Avoiding The Refusal will help you to do something about it. We also present an excellent article by Eoin Smith about how learning about magic from the past can help your act today, and we are pleased to pay homage to MagicWeek, Duncan Trillo's largely unsung online news resource, that for over 16 years has been delivering you your weekly UK news updates. All this plus much more...
