A Compendium of Essays by Jamy Ian Swiss

Welcome to the Lyons Den. 

This is a compendium of thirty-six product reviews, along with additional essays, all written by Jamy Ian Swiss. In 2016, Jamy began contributing to the Lyons Den column and the result is this intensely-packed, insightful and, sometimes provocative collection of writing. 

The essays take on a more personal journey as Jamy reflects on magic, how it is presented to the public, and what impact that has on the general view of magic today. The product reviews are more direct: they are deep analytical dives by the author, and surface as fully-explored breakdowns, offering readers insightful consideration.

Where to begin?
