Houdini vs. Hodgson in Weird Fiction Review #3

Sam Gafford, who runs a blog devoted to William Hope Hodgson, has published an article called "Hodgson v. Houdini: The Blackburn Challenge" in Weird Fiction Review #3. Says Sam:

"My article is my attempt to provide the final word on the infamous encounter between Houdini and Hodgson which occurred at the Palace Theatre in Blackburn, England, in 1902. The confrontation would leave Houdini permanently scarred (physically and emotionally) and is mentioned in virtually every Houdini biography."

Weird Fiction Review #3 is edited by S.T. Joshi and is limited to 500 copies. It's available for $20 via Centipede Press.
