“A state of mind, an independent voice”. That’s how Opus Magazine introduced itself on every… however often it appeared. Now, the Opus Editorial Team™ of Chris Power and JJ have decided to revamp their website, add an online shop where you can buy the PDF downloads of the first couple of volumes (with, we are promised, more to follow in due course) and even start a forum for like-minded magicians to discuss whatever they want to discuss.
The magazine was an attempt to create the sort that Chris and JJ, along with original editor Ian Keeble and advisor David Britland, would want to read themselves. Interviews, reports, reviews, gossip and even a trick or 2 per issue. As it turned out, a lot of people wanted to read this sort of magazine too. The reports and reviews were never anything short of honest and if they didn’t like something, they would tell you – and tell you why! Opus were not afraid to voice their opinion and ruffle more than a few feathers of the magical establishment, if they felt those feathers needed ruffled.
Even though Chris and JJ haven’t been away anywhere – they’ve been busy with something called “life” – it’s great to see them, and Opus, back with an online presence. You should go visit them at www.opusmagazine.co.uk. I think you’ll enjoy your time with them.
