LINK: Jim Steinmeyer addresses the Houdini vs. Thurston controversy

In his Spring 2011 newsletter, author Jim Steinmeyer addresses the negative reactions from some Houdini "writers and collectors" to his new book, The Last Greatest Magician in the World: Howard Thurston versus Houdini and the Battle of the American Wizards. Jim offers an interesting comparison between his book and Houdini's own The Unmasking of Robert-Houdin. Click the headline above to read

UPDATE: Unfortunately, it appears Jim has removed his post.

  1. I think he's being a bit disingenuous saying he is surprised about riling the Houdini enthusiasts. If part of your book's title is "Howard Thurston versus Houdini" what would you expect?

    I'm sure it's a great book though and I still want to read it.
