is a site for magicians and for lovers of magic. Everyone knows
what a magician is but not everyone knows what a lover of magic
is. Well, there are people who love the theater who have never
acted on stage; there are people who love opera, who can't sing
a note. There are people who love music but can't play a cymbal!
There are people who love ballet but have two left feet! A lover
of magic is a person who loves to watch magic and maybe even learn
how to perform a simple effect or two. In short, a lover of magic
is someone who wants to be entertained by magic. Either watching
magic or performing magic. We're building a fun, online community
for sharing, watching, reading, buying, auctioning, selling, learning
and communicating throughout the world. Also, we have started
to compile the ELM
(Every Living Magician) where entertainers,
enthusiasts, ANYONE who considers themselves a magician, either
for fun or profit, can be listed for free.
Be sure to get listed (it's FREE)

we be giving away magic secrets? No way! Absolutely not! That's
like telling a five-year-old there is no Santa Claus. So what's
the objective of this site? As stated earlier it is to share some
of the enchantment. It is to encourage. It is to stimulate any
lover of magic to explore the art further. It is to let you know
how to hire a magician. It is to let you know how to get a magical
product. It is to keep the love alive.
take the magicians code of ethics very seriously, and we feel
that there are many esoteric magic secrets and discussions (and
products) that should never be seen by the general public. If
you are a magician there will be a protected section for you,
(hats and rabbits) which will open very soon.
magical friends have said we shouldn't tell people how to contact
suppliers of magical products. Our answer is quite simple. Today,
anyone can walk into a magical store anywhere in the world and
buy a magic product or even a boxed set of magic at Christmas.
Or for that matter they can even order on-line. There are so many
low-quality, unscrupulous people out there offering poorly-made,
deceptively advertised items, there is a danger people will be
discouraged and ripped off. This would cause the magic community
to gain a bad reputation. Our goal is to educate magic enthusiasts
and recommend only the best resources for magic-related products
a general rule those who do buy magic tricks, props, books, and
videos are lovers of magic and they want to learn how to amaze
and enchant their friends and family. No professional magician
feels threatened by that. It's a bit like saying that if you attend
amateur dramatics classes you are threatening the acting skills
of a Hollywood Oscar winner.
the very word 'Magic'. It is a noun, a verb and an adjective!
Magic entertains and inspires us all. It brings a smile where
there was previously a tear. It has even been used as therapy
to help heal the sick. It baffles, it amazes, it cheers, it astonishes
and above all, it touches the child like wonder in all of us in
a world that is forgetting how to experience the thrill of enchantment.
Anyone who has seen the look on a child's face as it opens a birthday
or Christmas present will understand. Magic is fun! Magic is enchantment!
