The magazine started in October 1979 and the final issue was published in August 1983. When Derek Lever launched Magic Mag he felt that the entire magic scene had become stagnant and uninteresting and once the magazine was launched he was not afraid of having a dig at anyone and everyone. It was an outspoken magazine with some top professional contributors such as: Simon Lovell, Trevor Lewis, David Howarth, Tommy Copper, Terry Seabrooke and Billy McComb. It contains hundreds of professional effects and routines, articles, hints and tips for everyone with an interest in becoming a working professional.
Included is an index (not hyperlinked to the issue PDFs) and an introduction by Derek Lever.
