==Biography==
Jon Racherbaumer was born January 22, 1940, in Oak Park, Illinois, under the sign of Aquarius. His early years were spent in Elmhurst, Illinois (Harlan Tarbell’s hometown), a western suburb of Chicago. His interest in magic was sparked by seeing Dr. Tarbell perform in 1950. Tarbell’s daughter, Marian, was involved in community theater with Jon’s mother at the time. Soon thereafter, he received his first magic book, Tarbell Course in Magic –Volume 1, on his eleventh birthday. After discovering that Dr. Tarbell had donated his entire course to the local library, Jon spent many hours diligently studied each volume along with other magic books in the library.

After discovering that Tarbell had donated his entire course to the local library, Racherbaumer studied each volume along with other magic books in the library.
  
Jon joined the Mazda Mystics Club (Juniors) in 1953, a club started by Russell Shaw and his wife in Oak Park, Illinois. Meetings were held in the basement of the Mazda Magic Shop. He maintained his interest throughout his schooling and thereafter when he moved to New Orleans in 1963. The Big Easy, home of the Mardi Gras, jazz music, and voodoo, is often called the Dream State, an ideal place for all things magical to ferment. From 1957 to 1965, Jon attended four universities and worked at various jobs: radio programmer, disk-jockey, promotion man, salesman, restaurant manager, male model, tree-trimmer, blackjack dealer, construction worker, warehouseman, program consultant (voluntary health agency), institutional house-father, social worker, gym instructor, bartender, ambulance driver (at a race track), and finally he went to work for Eastern Airlines from 1965-1990 as an airlines business person.

Racherbaumer maintained his interest throughout his schooling and thereafter when he moved to New Orleans in 1963. From 1957 to 1965, Racherbaumer appears to  have led a somewhat itinerant lifestyle attending four universities and working at a range of jobs before finally working for Eastern Airlines from 1965-1990 as an airlines business person. Racherbaumer is a member of various magical organizations, including the IBM.
  
He eventually joined the International Brotherhood of Magicians and the Society of American Magicians in 1966, is a member of the Order of Merlin, and is a Lifetime Member of the Magic Castle in Hollywood, California. He worked as an Associate Editor at Richard Kaufman’s GENII magazine and currently writes "On the Slant," a monthly column. He was a columnist and contributing editor to Stan Allen’s MAGIC magazine for six years and has been the Parade Editor for the LINKING RING since 1991. He writes a regular column ("THe Artful Ledger") in Antimony magazine, a quarterly. Additionally, he was an active columnist for Joe Steven’s Gemini Magic Network. He has contributed columns to M-U-M (“At The Table”) and scores of tricks and articles to various magazines: Genii, The New Tops, M-U-M, Linking Ring, The New Pentagram, Blue Print, Precursor, The Looking Glass, The Conjuror, and Apocalypse. He has published over 60 books and is a recipient of a Literary Fellowship from the Academy of Magical Arts and Sciences and the Milbourne Christopher Literary Award.

Racherbaumer has primarily distinguished himself as an author in periodicals and of several well known texts. He worked as an Associate Editor at Richard Kaufman’s GENII magazine and currently writes "On the Slant," a monthly column. He was a columnist and contributing editor to Stan Allen’s MAGIC magazine for six years and has been the Parade Editor for the LINKING RING since 1991.

He has published over 60 books and is a recipient of a Literary Fellowship from the Academy of Magical Arts and Sciences and the Milbourne Christopher Literary Award.
  
Jon’s mentors were Ed Marlo and Eddie Fields; however, at different times he was inspired by Channing Pollock, Cardini, Don Alan, Albert Goshman, Chan Canasta, Tony Slydini, Finn Jon, Lennert Green, Tommy Wonder and Juan Tameriz. His (magic) literary influences are Martin Gardner, John Northern Hilliard, Walter Gibson, Ted Annemann, Bruce Elliott, P. Howard Lyons, and Victor Farelli.

Racherbaumer’s mentors were Edward Marlo and Eddie Fields; with Racherbaumer being primarily associated with the former. Racherbaumer has defended Marlo against the widely-held accusations of non-crediting on a number of occasions and was aligned with controversy surrounding Marlo's undermining of the Zarrow concept in championing the so-called Shank shuffle. Racherbaumer claims also to have been influenced at different times by Channing Pollock, Cardini, Don Alan, Albert Goshman, Chan Canasta, Tony Slydini, Finn Jon, Lennert Green, Tommy Wonder and Juan Tamariz; however these influences are not usually evident in his published material. Racherbaumer has identified his literary influences in magic as Martin Gardner, John Northern Hilliard, Walter Gibson, Ted Annemann, Bruce Elliott, P. Howard Lyons, and Victor Farelli. These influences appear to be more inspirational in nature, as their stylistic idiosyncrasies are rarely apparent in Racherbaumer's own writing. Racherbaumer's own writing style is characterised by an ornate and colourful use of wordplay, and the frequent use of obscure, arcane and sometimes anachronistic terminology. The influence of Ed Marlo's machine like imperative to explore endless variations of theme and method is at times evident, but in Racherbaumer's case it is not accurate to say that he has the same messianic obsession with variation towards published credit but, rather, a possible fascination with variation as a creative process. Racherbaumer is thus focussed on the process itself, rather than the objective. Aligned to this, his writings also show an obvious (and perhaps overarching) fascination with the craft of writing itself as a creative and communicative process. Racherbaumer's 'creative process' has at times led to accusations that he has transgressed some of the conventions of magic publication, with Jamy Ian Swiss notably criticising his revisionist approach to hardcover reprints of periodicals he had published in the 70's and 80's. Regardless of the controversy, there is no question that Racherbaumer has been an enduring presence in magical publishing for the last three decades, with several valued and even influential works to his credit.

His other interests are: body-building, literature, book-collecting, martial arts, philosophy, poetry, film, theater (theory), cosmology, painting, and mathematical recreations.
+
 
+
He has seven children (Karen, Michael, Jona, Jonathan, Erika, Robynn, and Ry) and ten grandchildren (Lindsey, Matthew, Thomas, Sasha, Autumn, Ben, Adam, Allyssa, Sophina, and Koko).

Biography

Jon Racherbaumer was born January 22, 1940, in Oak Park, Illinois. His early years were spent in Elmhurst, Illinois, a western suburb of Chicago. His interest in magic was sparked by seeing Dr. Harlan Tarbell, another resident of Elmhurst, perform in 1950. Tarbell’s daughter, Marian, was involved in community theater with Racherbaumer’s mother at the time. Soon thereafter, he received his first magic book, Tarbell Course in Magic –Volume 1, on his eleventh birthday. After discovering that Tarbell had donated his entire course to the local library, Racherbaumer studied each volume along with other magic books in the library.

Racherbaumer joined the Mazda Mystics Club (Juniors) in 1953, in Oak Park, Illinois. Meetings were held in the basement of the Mazda Magic Shop. Racherbaumer maintained his interest throughout his schooling and thereafter when he moved to New Orleans in 1963. From 1957 to 1965, Racherbaumer appears to have led a somewhat itinerant lifestyle attending four universities and working at a range of jobs before finally working for Eastern Airlines from 1965-1990 as an airlines business person. Racherbaumer is a member of various magical organizations, including the IBM.

Racherbaumer has primarily distinguished himself as an author in periodicals and of several well known texts. He worked as an Associate Editor at Richard Kaufman’s GENII magazine and currently writes "On the Slant," a monthly column. He was a columnist and contributing editor to Stan Allen’s MAGIC magazine for six years and has been the Parade Editor for the LINKING RING since 1991. He writes a regular column ("The Artful Ledger") in Antimony magazine, a quarterly. Additionally, he was an active columnist for Joe Steven’s Gemini Magic Network. He has contributed columns to M-U-M (“At The Table”) and scores of tricks and articles to various magazines: Genii, The New Tops, M-U-M, Linking Ring, The New Pentagram, Blue Print, Precursor, The Looking Glass, The Conjuror, and Apocalypse. He has published over 60 books and is a recipient of a Literary Fellowship from the Academy of Magical Arts and Sciences and the Milbourne Christopher Literary Award.

Racherbaumer’s mentors were Edward Marlo and Eddie Fields; with Racherbaumer being primarily associated with the former. Racherbaumer has defended Marlo against the widely-held accusations of non-crediting on a number of occasions and was aligned with controversy surrounding Marlo's undermining of the Zarrow concept in championing the so-called Shank shuffle. Racherbaumer claims also to have been influenced at different times by Channing Pollock, Cardini, Don Alan, Albert Goshman, Chan Canasta, Tony Slydini, Finn Jon, Lennert Green, Tommy Wonder and Juan Tamariz; however these influences are not usually evident in his published material. Racherbaumer has identified his literary influences in magic as Martin Gardner, John Northern Hilliard, Walter Gibson, Ted Annemann, Bruce Elliott, P. Howard Lyons, and Victor Farelli. These influences appear to be more inspirational in nature, as their stylistic idiosyncrasies are rarely apparent in Racherbaumer's own writing. Racherbaumer's own writing style is characterised by an ornate and colourful use of wordplay, and the frequent use of obscure, arcane and sometimes anachronistic terminology. The influence of Ed Marlo's machine like imperative to explore endless variations of theme and method is at times evident, but in Racherbaumer's case it is not accurate to say that he has the same messianic obsession with variation towards published credit but, rather, a possible fascination with variation as a creative process. Racherbaumer is thus focussed on the process itself, rather than the objective.

Regardless of the controversy, there is no question that Racherbaumer has been an enduring presence in magical publishing for the last three decades, with several valued and even influential works to his credit.
