Tim Ellis and Sue-Anne Webster continue their updates from China and the FISM competition in Beijing, China.
They report on a particularly unsettling incident immediately following a contestant’s performance in the Close-Up Competition.

The USA Today has a neat article about Taiwanese Magician Lu Chen, a fantastic magician lauded by no less an authority than David Copperfield.
