Ever wondered which issue of Magic Magazine has articles about Houdini’s infamous water torture cell? Well, wonder no more: a fully-searchable index of all 301 issues of the venerable magic periodical is available online, right at your fingertips.

Simply head over to, type in whatever info you’ve got in the boxes on the left (author, subject, article title, etc.), click search, and every instance which your search has appeared in the magazine will appear in a field on the right.

All of the back issue archives are being liquidated, all the way back to the very first year of publication. You  can purchase individual issues for 50% or you can get the whole shebang – all 301 issues of Magic Magazine – for the first time ever. 

The “complete collection,” as it’s being called, even includes some special bonuses, like the misprinted premier issue that’s previously never been for sale. The entire run costs $575, (plus $125.50 for postage), and is only available to ship to the US.

Update: The 50% off sale is over, but the complete collection is still in stock as of November 28.
