Activate iGenii

In partnership with the Conjuring Arts Research Center, a one-year subscription to the printed edition of Genii now brings you 12 printed issues, access to the current issue in a digital format, and digital versions of all of our back issues going back to 1936: almost 100,000 pages of everything you could ever want to know about magic.

So, loyal subscribers, please step onto my electronic magic carpet and let me whisk you into the future … this is how you access iGenii:

  1. You need the polybag or envelope in which your magazine is shipped. Your Activation Key is the number printed just above your name. If you have misplaced your number or thrown away your polybag/envelope, contact the Genii office for your activation key.
  2. Go to the following URL on the internet: http://askalexander.org/genii.cgi
  3. Enter your email address where it asks for your “Activation ID.” Make sure it’s the same email address you’ve already provided to us.
  4. Enter your “Activation Key” (that’s your unique number just above your name on the address label on the polybag or envelope in which your magazine is shipped) in the space requested.
  5. Click the “Activate” button. You will be brought to a new screen.
  6. Enter your desired “Account Name” in the space provided: comprised of only letters and/or numbers, it must be five or more characters and is not case sensitive.  (Note that if you are already a member of the Conjuring Arts Research Center, please use the link provided on this screen, which will add Genii to your existing account.)
  7. WRITE DOWN YOUR ACCOUNT NAME so you don’t forget it. Please do not share it with anyone.
  8. Create and enter a “Password” in the space provided: it must be six or more characters in length and can use any letters, numbers, or characters except this symbol: #.  Using the # symbol will prevent you from using the iPad app. WRITE DOWN YOUR PASSWORD so you don’t forget it. Please do not share it with anyone.
  9. Click “Log In” to enter iGenii. You will be asked to re-enter your Account Name and Password. Then click enter.

You have two choices: read the digital version of the current and recent issues, or read digital versions of all back issues.

To access the current issue, click on the miniature image of the magazine with flipping pages on the lower left.

To access all the back issues, note the screen with a line in the center which allows you to enter a word (or name, etc.), then search for all instances that word appears in every issue of Genii. If you are searching for a phrase or name, then you must put quotation marks around it—“Dai Vernon” or “Elmsley Count” for example.

Click on any issue of a magazine to start reading on page 1.

You can move from page to page by clicking on the forward and backward arrows in the navigation bar at the upper right area of the screen.
