Magic Resource. Links to Other Sites

Last update:
Oct 2023: Added Steve Myer's Magic. Removed Harvey Nerzof's Magic Review site (no longer there).

I've broken the areas down into: General Magic Information sites, Magic Shops, and Christian Magic, and Wholesale Dealers.

Note: There are some websites out there that are still "online" but nobody appears to be home. Unless it is obvious that the site is current, I would recommend you contact the site to ensure the item you are looking to buy is available.

General Magic Information, Forums, Reviews, etc.
Documentations Des Arts Magiques (Documentation of the Magic Arts) Magic Reference Guides and more! Great, but only in French
Another Source for Book TOCs: Denis Behr's well done magic book table of contents database

Not updated since 2007! This seems have gone away. Book information and Reviews - older companion site to Martin's Magic site, above.

Shopping Recommendations: My first recommendation is to try and find a good local shop near you. Sometimes prices will be a little higher than mail order, but overall it is still better to buy local. You can see stuff demonstrated, you can see what you are buying, and if you develop a good relationship with the owner, he or she can let you in on good deals, let you weed out the good stuff from the junk, and so forth. It generally costs more to run a store front than just a warehouse (or garage!) and a web page. However, many magicians don't have stores local to them, or the local stores aren't very good, or they just don't carry what you are looking for.

This listing (in somewhat of an alphabetical order) does not represent every good shop, and note that some listings are here for the sake of the magic reference pages and I have never shopped there. Also, especially for some of the smaller shops, it may be wise to contact the owner before submitting an order. Some websites are old and may not be current, even though the ordering pages are still available.
