American Self-Liberator, Europe's Eclipsing Sensation,
World's Handcuff King & Prison Breaker-
Nothing on Earth Can Hold HOUDINI a Prisoner!!!

A new book by Kenneth Silverman

Information provided by The Houdini Museum
Scranton Wilkes Barre Steamtown National Park
Pocono Pennsylvania tourist area.

Quotes from New York Times Book Review section.
December 15, 1996.

"Ask the guy next to you on the bus to name a magician, and 9 times out of 10 he'll say, "Houdini." Seventy years after his death, Houdini still whips the competition. What kind of man does it take to turn a vaudeville magic act into a profound cultural symbol? This question is at the heart of Kenneth Silverman's "Houdini!!! The Career of Ehrich Weiss."

"virtually all new biography"

"Mr. Silverman's grasp of history shines"

"remarkable achievement. To uncover so many previously unknown details of the master mystifier's life would be enough to merit applause. To examine Houdini and his world with such originality and depth deserves a standing ovation."

The book is a giant work with 100 pictures as well. It's $35.00 and we expect it to sell out. Send $35.00 plus $3.50 postage in US or appropriate postage for non US destinations. Don't miss this. Send to Houdini Museum, 1433 N. Main Ave., Scranton PA 18508.
