The world may not be quite back to normal (especially for our British iTricksters) but we are slowly moving the way. Vegas is slowly re-opening and the Venetian has announced its plans for holiday show(opening later this month) which includes magician Ben Stone (above in a 2013 CBS Las Vegas profile) and several former American Idol contestants.

Ripley’s Believe It Or Not posted a new feature on Houdini yesterday.

Finally, Stuff New Zealand has announced New Zealand magician Bill Watson has passed away at the age of 90; our thoughts are with his family and friends.
