Hello from a writer who loves magic

Postby MagicFan72 » Aug 1st, '12, 19:52



Yes, that's me. I've loved magic for most of my life, but never progressed beyond 'amateur hobbyist' status. That's where I'm happiest, though, since writing is my discipline and takes up plenty of time!

I'm a big fan of close-up magic. In particular, I have strong nostalgic links with the Supreme Magic Company (can highly recommend Ian Adair's book about his decades with them, Dealing With Magic) and Mad Hatter Magic/Inzani-Henley.

I run a blog which is usually about writing, but today I wrote about the start of my mission to collect all issues of the Magigram. It's also about the dilemma between collecting physical and digital items: http://jasonarnopp.blogspot.com

As trading of books and other written stuff isn't permitted here there's been a bit of pruning, please carry on by PM :wink: .

Welcome...very cool to have you on board.

Your blog/website is great. Lots of interesting work and great skill set for magic writing. There is such a need for good scripting.

Best wishes

Todd
