MAGIC Magazine publishes RKO 589

Exciting news today! My article "RKO 589: Discovering Hollywood's First Houdini Film" is published in the February 2011 issue of MAGIC Magazine. This is a somewhat expanded version of the article I first posted here on Wild About Harry back in November and, of course, it is not broken into two parts.

The February MAGIC is shipping now to subscribers. You can also buy the magazine without a subscription for $6.00 from the MAGIC website or from any of the locations listed here. MAGIC Magazine is also now available on the iPad.

What a thrill and honor to have my work appear in the pages of one of the very best magic magazines out there!

MAGIC Magazine, February 2011


  1. Congratulations John. That's awesome!

  2. Thanks, Tracy. They did a fantastic job of laying it all out. Always exciting to see something in print, and it's nice having a hard copy. It's also a really strong issue overall. Terrific pic of Blackstone doing the overboard box escape.

  3. Great to read the article in MAGIC. Congratulations!

  4. Thank you, Dean :)

    I'm amazed at how quickly MAGIC published this. I only submitted it in mid Dec. Had to get special permission from the Warner Bros. archive. It was a bit of a nail-biter.

  5. Excellent article! Enjoyed it very much... look forward to more.

  6. Very well written. Thanks.
