A BUSY MONTH FOR VANISH
This month has been incredibly busy as I have been working on TWO special editions and the regular monthly VANISH magic magazine .
A FREE SPECIAL EDITION came out last week and is a retrospect look at the recent FISM held in Quebec , Canada . This is possibly the largest account of the convention of any magic publication with four different contributors and photos galore . If you didn ' t go to FISM then this will give you a good understanding of what it is all about , and what you can except from the next one in 2025 in Italy . If you did go , then it will bring back lots of great memories . Thank you to Peter Samelson , Louie Foxx , Ryan Joyce and Connie Boyd who represented VANISH and helped get me the articles in on time .

The other FREE special edition is Science & Magic . The connection between Science and Magic has been a fascination of mine for many years . You can imagine how excited I was when a few months ago I got a call from Adam Fleischer . I knew of Adam from The Magic Manuscript , magic ’ s first full-color glossy magazine that he launched and edited during the 1980s . Adam , along with America ’ s first FISM Champion Vito Lupo , also produced The New York Magic Symposium conventions in the 80s . Driven by their interest in this area , both Vito and Adam collaborated with me to produce this special issue of VANISH on how magic inspires science and creativity . I ’ m fascinated by the confluence of magic with science and academia , and we have an issue full of articles that will be of interest to both scientifically inclined magicians as well as magically intrigued scientists and academics . Get your FREE copy here .
Our Feature artist is the current WORLD ' S BEST PARLOUR MAGICIAN having won the first place in this category at FISM . Jonathan Todd sits down in Hawaii with Shoot and gets a real insight in to what makes a real champion .
Finally , we have two tributes to two great magicians who recently passed . Both have left a huge legacy of work behind them , and they will live on through generations of magicians performing now and in the future . RIP Doug Bennett and Martin Lewis .
