Rendezvous with Houdini in Ft. Worth

I'm off to Fort Worth, Texas, to participate in the 2012 Official Houdini Seance which will be held at The Masonic Center on Wednesday/Halloween night. The event, which this year is open to the public, is being hosted by Arthur Moses and Derek Kennedy in cooperation with Bill Radner. The seance will be conducted by Scott Wells.

Not only am I honored to be at the seance table, but I will also be giving the Houdini History Presentation at the event. Several Houdini collectors have generously allowed me to share some rare, unpublished photos, so I hope this will be an exciting presentation even for those who already know all about that man Harry.

I won't be updating this blog on this road, but I will be posting updates and photos via twitter @HoudiniWild and Facebook.

Who knows, maybe this is the one Houdini comes back for!

Tickets to the seance are still available via Hope to see you there.

UPDATE: Here's my report on the event.


  1. John--will you be putting up those unpublished photos here?

    1. No, sorry. Part of the deal is that I said I would only use them in my talk. But one of them (my favorite one) will be published in the upcoming Houdini The Untold Story Collectors Edition.
