Gimmick MagiZette

The Gimmick MagiZette is a semimonthly e-zine of Magic and Allied Arts. Though originated in India it has an international flavor.

Solyl Kundu started toying with the idea of revitalizing The Gimmick for some time. It started as two pages of photocopied tatty newsletter - the mouth-piece of International Magical Youth Organization founded in 1975 by Salil Kumar “Solyl” Kundu and some of his like-minded friends. Very soon that newsletter turned into a full-fledged 16 pages A-5 size independent magazine. This had the honor of running for 23 years. Many greats of that time and present days including Sid Lorraine, Bruce Posgate, Tony Kardyro, George Johnstone, Bob Olson aka REO, Edwin Hooper, Harold Taylor, Johnny Geddes, Ian Adair, Aldo Colombini, Don Wiberg, David Sigafus, Sam Dalal, Swami Mahadevananda, Magician Someeran, Gora Datta and more had contributed their pet articles to that little quarterly mini magazine.

Recently in IndianMagique: The Premier e-Group for Indian Magicians some members added a thread and discussed The Gimmick with high esteem and nostalgia. That has made Solyl mad and compelled him to think and rethink of launching The Gimmick MagiZette in e-zine form.
