Latest revision as of 11:19, 18 December 2011

Magicana was a magic newsletter started by Bill Woodfield in 1946 as a "A Trade Paper for Magicians," and became part of Genii starting in 1948.

Charlie Miller took over and called 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).

Magicana Columnists from 1998 to Present

  • ACER, David (Confessions of a Road Warrior) (21 columns that ran intermittently from February 2000 to September 2007. Counterposed anecdotes or road stories with close-up magic.
  • BRITLAND, David (Cardopolis). First column ran in February 2010. Card magic.

  • GOLDSTEIN, Phil (The Other Month). Mentalism.
  • JENNINGS, Larry (The Jennings Tapes), written by Richard Kaufman. Cards. Column debuted in the January 1999 issue. [from the column masthead] "Late at night, the great Larry Jennings would sit in his den and talk at length, explaining the ingenious magic he had created that day. Only a cassette recorder heard his words... Before dying in October 1997 he gave many of those tapes to your editor. Readers of Genii (his favorite magic magazine) now have a chance to eavesdrop on the thoughts and tricks of one of the most prolific and creative magicians of the latter half of the 20th century."
