Mr. Kalver serves magicians outside the Rhode Island arena through his work as Editor of the Magic SYMbol, a young magicians magazine for members of the Society of Young Magicians.  Mr. Kalver?s work on Magic SYMbol is outstanding and precisely right for the young magician. 

 

And because Mr. Kalver apparently has energy beyond that of a normal mortal, he also works as the moderator of the very well-run SAMtalk listserve.  If you are an SAM member, you need to join this list.  It is one of the best benefits of membership.

 

It is so nice to see the good guys get great press.  Congratulations, Mr. Kalver!
