his edition of VANISH celebrates our fiftieth issue. This is a huge
achievement and I would like to thank everybody over the past
six years who have contributed and helped a long the way. I
really couldn't have done it without all my friends in the magic and
entertainment industry. On average we reach over 100,000 downloads and
these come from around the world, and not just magicians. I know many
other show business folks who get a lot from the essays and inside stories
as everybody can relate to them. The Criss Angel and Franz Harary Special
Editions now have well over 300,000 downloads each.
The one thing I am most proud about VANISH is introducing magicians
and artists who are on their way up. We were the first magic magazine to
feature Shin Lim, Nick Diffatte, Carissa Hendrix to name only a few. These
talented magicians are now performing in huge shows and on television
around the world. One of my original goals has always been to look outside
the box and find artists I think will make their mark on the world stage. Our
current feature Anastasia Synn is one such artist.
Anastasia is definitely doing something revolutionary in magic and leading
the way for a brand new field in our craft. I am fascinated to see where this
journey will take her and look forward to revisiting her story in the near
For me personally the greatest loss in the past six years was my mentor
Wayne Rogers. Wayne was instrumental in my career and so it was a
privilege to be able to feature him in VANISH as I know he influenced many
others around the world. Being able to also do features on my two closest
friends Alan Watson and Richard Webster was also a very proud moment
for me with VANISH.
Over the years contributors have come and gone, but the four who were
with me from day one was Nick Lewin, Ben Robinson, Charles Bach and
Louie Foxx. All three have been in my corner and never missed a deadline.
I am humbled to have such great friends who are talented writers and
creators as well as incredible performers.
