Houdini and Conan Doyle paperback released in UK

A paperback edition of Houdini and Conan Doyle by Christopher Sandford has been released in the UK by Duckworth. The cover art keeps the same basic design as the UK hardcover, but is a little different in the arrangement of the text.

Houdini and Conan Doyle is a superb non-fiction examination of the friendship between Houdini and the creator of Sherlock Holmes (I realize I need to point out that this is non-fiction because there are so many fictional adventures of Houdini and Doyle currently out there). The book looks at their rift over the question of spiritualism, and is one of the very best books written on Houdini and the subject of spiritualism.

You can read my full review HERE.

Purchase the Houdini and Conan Doyle UK paperback from The U.S. paperback edition will be released in February 2013.

UPDATE: The Index and Bibliography are missing from this paperback. They are listed on the table of contents, so this appears to be a printing error.
