Houdini haunts The Missouri Review

The summer 2013 issue of The Missouri Review includes a special feature on Houdini by Kristine Somerville and Editor Speer Morgan.

"Many fascinating things are known about Houdini," writes Morgon, "partly because he was an assiduous collector of his own materials and also of rare books and gear concerning the history of magic. There are also so many myths and partial truths about him, which this feature tries to clarify, including stories of his death at age fifty-two and the nature of his relationship with the all-powerful milieu of spiritualism."

You can buy this issue (no. 36.2) for $8.95 direct from The Missouri Review website.
