New Houdini and Conan Doyle book released in the U.S.

Christopher Sandford's new book about Houdini and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is released today in the U.S. under the title Masters of Mystery: The Strange Friendship of Arthur Conan Doyle and Harry Houdini.

The book was released last month in the UK by Duckworth under the leaner title Houdini and Conan Doyle. You can read my full review of the UK edition HERE.

While I confess I prefer the UK title and cover art, this U.S. edition from Palgrave Macmillan compares favorably and contains all the same photos, etc. But what really matters is what's inside, and what's inside is a superb book, probably the best yet written on the subject of Houdini and spiritualism. This is a must own!

Purchase Masters of Mystery: The Strange Friendship of Arthur Conan Doyle and Harry Houdini by Christopher Standford on Amazon.

Christopher Sandford will be signing Masters of Mystery: The Strange Friendship of Arthur Conan Doyle and Harry Houdini at Books Inc. in Berkeley California on Dec. 5 at 7pm. Click for details.

  1. Was at book signing in Seattle and spoke with Mr. Sandford about my friend who is a magician and Houdini collector. I have a copy of an old newspaper about Houdini I wanted to give to Mr Sandford, but need a way to contact him. You can reach ne at 206-932-3544 or r.lafayette@comcast.net. Thanks Dick LaFayette
