Houdini makes 'His Greatest Escape'

eBooks have really opened to the door to Houdini fiction. Today we have news of yet another book released for the Kindle, Houdini - His Greatest Escape by Melvin Horowitz and Philip Kroopf.

From what I can tell from the (rather oddly written) editorial blurb, in Houdini - His Greatest Escape, Houdini returns from the grave in modern times to reunite with Bess, who has been reincarnated into a skeptical young woman. As he works to convince her who he is, Harry also has to tangle with Mr. Carraway, "the old man from beyond", whose mission is to drag Houdini back to where he belongs.

You know, I kinda like the sound of this.

Houdini - His Greatest Escape is available for the Kindle via


  1. What I want to know is why does Bess get to be reincarnated, while poor Harry has to ‘escape’ from the ‘other side’ and then avoid capture by an old man “whose sole mission is to drag Houdini back to where he belongs”?

    Surely, H.H. wasn’t that bad when he was alive. :)

  2. I for one find it reassuring that even though he's been dead for over 80 years, he's still getting people offside on the otherside.
