If an item is marked as Special Order this means that we do not currently have this item on our shelves, but we can have the item within 2-4 business days. Since it usually takes a certain number of business days for us to get these items delivered to us (depending on the distributor), we ship them out immediately after they arrive. Special ordering allows us to expand our inventory, giving you even more things to buy at our low club member pricing.
NOTE: Although these items run 98% in stock rate, it does NOT mean that they are guaranteed to be in stock. Sometimes our distributor runs out of these items and they are on backorder. If this is the case, and you happen to purchase an item that will not be available to us within the predefined number of business days, we will let you know immediately by email. If the Special Order item that you bought is on backorder from our supplier, you will not be billed for that item at time of shipment. If you paid by PayPal, we will refund the amount of the backordered item back to your account.
Note: If you happen to order a mixture of In Stock and Special Order items, then your total order will ship as soon as your Special Order items arrive.
And as we said in the last issue, watch out... Jamie's reviews have been known to sell at least three items for every 25,000+ people who read them!
The LA 411

From the latest at the Castle to hanging out with the stars (check out the pic of Jennifer Love Hewitt) Gerry is sure to catch your eyes and ears with his unique take on life in the big city.
Eric Evans gives us the word...
This has to be one of the highest anticipated columns we've come across.
After people realized that "Street Magic" didn't mean kidz with kardz, they began asking when we were going to get an article written by a professional busker.
And when word began to spread that Eric Evans was on board to write, the calls started coming in. When this man speaks, the true workers listen.
Eric has performed all over the world and we can't wait for you to listen to the wisdom that he's going to share with you.
More Reviews and Tricks
After a costly study, we found that the first thing magicians turned to was the review section and then the trick section of Street Magic Magazine. Bound and determined to make this magazine a publication for the real magicians out there (i.e. people who actually perform magic for people as opposed to guys who just quote'n'post~ if you don't know what quote'n'posting is then you better pick this issue up) we've put in more reviews for tricks that you'll actually use and some reviews to prevent you from buying absolute crap. Combine that with some effects from the likes of Bill Abbott and Todd Robbins and you've got a couple amazing days of reading and learning ahead of you.
The Blow Off
After receiving an e-mail about us not giving enough attention to the history of magic, we promptly got in touch with Jeremy Weiss to teach us how it all began.
Jeremy takes us on a trip down memory lane with an educating tale of how it all really went down. And it's not how you think. Jeremy brings us back to a time where magic meant something more than just trying to make a buck. Namely making two bucks.

Do you know who James Harrison is yet?
Well you should. After all he knows all about you- including your Drivers Licence number, your Amex number, and the telephone number for that waitress you just met.
And for his third edition of his popular series, he's going to let you in on more of his thoughts about how to get into people's hearts and minds, along with their pockets.
It's not an easy thing what he does but James gives you some professional insight on what it takes to reach down deep.
Plus so much more!
Street Magic is a cross between magazines like Maxim, FHM, GQ, and Thrasher with a magic flavor that makes us stand WAY out from the crowd. We are fresh, up-to-date, and from the streets.
We don't BS, we don't play politics, and we are in your face with hard-hitting articles, features, reviews, and in-depth interviews with the hottest magicians around. If some piece in our magazine doesn't get you pissed off or thinking, then we've not done our job.
We are here to provoke intelligent thought, logical discourse, and to positively influence magicians of all levels into thinking outside the proverbial "magic" box, and start pushing our art to the next level.
SM is a magazine for the thinking magician-for artists who don't want to fall in line and be like everyone else, but want to stand out from the crowd and be proud of who they are, where they are going, what they accomplish, and the legacy they leave behind. SM is about you and we prove that by featuring magicians of all levels. You don't have to have been dead for 70 years to get the cover.
We are about the rising leaders in magic-the ones who entertain on the street, stage, and screen today, in the near future, and in the days to come. And we are for all the magic shops-the places that got us into magic in the first place. We are not about ad space; we are about content and producing a magazine that increases the public's interest in our art.
But most of all, we are totally unpredictable. Period. You'll never know what's going to happen next in SM-and that's what makes us really stand out.
