House of Wonders reveals Randini

It appears the recently published Randini The Man Who Helped Houdini was not the first book to uncover the story of Randolph Douglas (a Houdini superfan and contemporary who gave Houdini the idea for the suspended straight-jacket escape).

Published last year, House of Wonders by award wining Cheshire Poet Laureate John Lindley goes in search of Douglas in a series of twenty-five poems, illustrated and illuminated by a fascinating array of images. The search takes him into the halls where Randolph Douglas staged his escapes, the caves he explored and the amazing House of Wonders he built around him.

Signed copies of House of Wonders are available direct from the author at 26 Albert Place, Havannah St., Congleton, Cheshire, CW12 2AJ. Price £7.95 + £1.15 post & packaging. Cheques (sterling only) payable to “John Lindley” For more information, visit John Lindley’s official website.
