But as 2010 comes to a close, there is no sign of The Witch of Lime Street. My inquires sent to the publisher and Jaher's reps earlier this year went unanswered, leading me to wonder whether The Witch of Lime Street was as phony as...well...the witch of Lime Street.
So I decided to try again. This time, happily, I received a prompt response!
The friendly representative for the agency who handled the sale, Janklow & Nesbit, says, "David Jaher is still working on the book, after undertaking intense and thorough research. I’m afraid we have no pub date as of yet – my best guess is that it will be out in 2012. It is going to be phenomenal."
Publisher Crown responded with a direct, "This book will be published in 2012."
Very excited about this one. It's about time we had an entire book on Houdini and Margery. But will it be pro or con?
|The battle resumes in 2012|
UPDATE: 'The Witch of Lime Street' will finally manifest in October (pre-order).
