The UK edition of Christopher Sandford's excellent new book about Houdini and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is now shipping from a week in advance of its official Oct. 20 release date.

This UK edition from Duckworth sports the title Houdini and Conan Doyle and the very slick cover art you see here on the right. I'm not sure when Amazon started shipping, but the listing currently shows only 8 copies left.

The U.S. edition from Palgrave Macmillan won't be released until November 22 under the title Masters of Mystery: The Strange Friendship of Arthur Conan Doyle and Harry Houdini.

This book is, IMO, the best yet written on the subject of Houdini and spiritualism. Watch for my full review of Houdini and Conan Doyle by Christopher Sandford this weekend.
