The Story of Harry Houdini

Amazon.com has just made available for the Kindle The Story of Harry Houdini by James C. Young. No, it's not a new book per se. The product description below explains what this is exactly:

Originally published in 'The New York Times', This Kindle edition, equivalent in length to a physical book of approximately 20 pages, consists of three parts. Part I, a brief overview of the life and career of the master magician and escape artist, was originally published January 13, 1918. Part II, which focuses on Houdini as both a medium and a debunker of mediums, was originally published May 7, 1922. Part III, which concerns one of Houdini’s greatest escapes, was originally published July 8, 1912.

Interesting. And it's only .99¢. Still, I wish there was a way to get this in a printed edition.
