Magicana was a magic newsletter started by Bill Woodfield in 1946 as a "A Trade Paper for Magicians" and was included within Genii starting in 1948.

Charlie Miller took over calling it Magicana New Series from 1964 to 1978.

When Richard Kaufman became the publisher/editor of Genii in 1998, he revived the Magicana section and began writing it himself. Earle Oakes was brought on as illustrator. Joshua Jay guest-wrote one Magicana in 1999 (the August 1999 issue) before becoming the writer/editor of the Talk About Tricks column in MAGIC magazine. David Acer took over writing Magicana in 2005, starting with the May 2005 issue and continuing to this day.

Other guest writers for Magicana during the Kaufman era include The Flicking Fingers (August 2000), David Ben (August 2006), Jon Racherbaumer (August 2008) and David Regal (June 2009).
