Magicana New Series was a continuation of the "magazine within a magazine", Magicana, a magic newsletter started by Bill Woodfield in 1946 and was distributed within Genii starting in 1948.

Charlie Miller resurrected the series, again in Genii, starting in November 1964 calling it the "New Series". It continued virtually uninterrupted until April 1978, numbered #154 (which listed Elizabeth Wilson as the editor). A number of Charlie's later columns were ghosted by Elizabeth Wilson (wife of Ron Wilson) and Jules Lenier when Charlie was off performing on cruise ships.

The column had a two year hiatus until the January 1981 issue saw the return of Magicana as a regular column (however it was no longer numbered or considered a "magazine within a magazine".) From 1981 until September, 1987 Charlie's writings continued on a more or less regular basis, ghosted at various times by others, including James Patton and Johnny Thompson.

Beginning with February, 1989 issue James Patton officially took over the duties of the Magicana section within Genii. Patton ran the column until 1992.
