The Broken Wand for August, 2012, will be published in the August issue of The Linking RIng. That issue will be available to read in digital form on September 1, or to download in a PDF. The hard copies will follow shortly thereafter in the mail, usually by the tenth of the month. In the September Broken Wand we pay tribute to thirteen magicians, for their lives, and for bringing joy and laughter to many people during those lives. Here are those thirteen obituaries.
