43rd Magic Collectors Weekend in Chicago hosted by the Magic Collectors Association. I'm very excited! This is my first MCW and word is this is going to be a particularly good one for those of us afflicted with Houdini madness.
First off, I will be giving a short presentation on Friday morning called Guests and Ghosts of 278. This is part of a celebration of the "Three Hs" -- Herrmann, Hoffman, and Houdini. I'll post more about my talk, and the amazing collectible the MCA has invited me to unveil, on my return.
I'm also especially excited about Friday night's special line-up of Houdini presentations. The night will feature a rare short film starring Teller as Houdini; a talk by Houdini lecturer extraordinaire William Pack; and then the presentation of a MAJOR "game changer" discovery by mega collector, Arthur Moses. I know what this is and, trust me, it's going to rock the Houdini and magic world!
I'm not sure I will have time to update this blog, but I will be tweeting my adventures @HoudiniWild, including the first word of the big Friday night revelation. So follow me on Twitter or watch my tweets above (I've temporarily moved my Twitter feed up to the top of the blog).
I'll be back next week with a full report.
