From MagicPedia, the free online encyclopedia for magicians by magicians.
There was a special 497th issue published by a PEA member in honor of Bascom's passing. On the back page in the place of Bascom's usual "The Mystic Word" column was a picture of Bascom (his well known logo) and the following:
- "Published No More Editor....Bascom Jones March 23, 1994 Dear Bascom, For 24 years you have filled our lives with magic. Thank you."
