A new feature for volume 12 is the style of the Masterclass. For the next few issues we will be featuring tricks each issue from a specific country, and to kick us off we are delighted to welcome to our pages terrific contributions from Dan Garrett, David Regal and John Bannon, all of whom are representing, of course, the USA. Look out for magic from a different country next time.
Talking of the USA, our cover star comes from that hotbed of magic and is one of the continent’s true leaders, Jeff McBride. With his highly distinctive mask act and a reputation as one of the world’s best performers and indeed magic teachers, we are delighted to welcome him to our pages for an insightful article. Watch out for him too as he visits the UK in the next few weeks.
Plus....Germany’s Alana ends up On The Psychiatrist’s Couch, Paul Draper talks about his life as a successful pro performer, we invest world dominating power on John Carney to find out what he would do with it, and I get to spend 40p In The Phonebox talking to Now You See Me 2 film star Woody Harrelson. There are stacks of reviews for you to digest, news, letters and other bits and pieces, all of which we feel gets our new volume off to a strong start. We hope you agree!
