Even though he is retired from editing the magazine, Stan Allen is far from being relegated to a "nobody" status. He really is somebody to reckon with in the magic community. And he has lots of plans for the future.
Editor of the former MAGIC Magazine (or is it, Former Editor of MAGIC Magazine), Stan Allen, has been a guest on The Magic Word many times, but he is undoubtedly the man who has his "finger on the pulse" of the magic community. He knows everyone in the magic community and was the logical first stop in my "Las Vegas Chronicles". With MAGIC Magazine now a part of our history, his focus is now on planning future MAGIC Live! conventions which he talks about in this podcast.
Stan was the first guest I visited on my trip to Las Vegas as we talked not only about the evolution and demise of MAGIC Magazine, but also about digital magic magazines and where that might go, and he wraps up talking about the future of his MAGIC Live! conventions (now that there is no "bringing MAGIC Magazine to life" to model the convention after) and breaking the mold of the traditional event.
