Glenn Herdling, author of the new eBook Piper Houdini: Apprentice of Coney Island, has posted a nice profile of Houdini's brother William Weiss on the official Piper Houdini website. You never read much about "Lobster Bill," so this is a welcome piece. There's even some info here I didn't know.
In the book, Bill is a vampire, the reasons for which Glenn explains. So click the headline and have a read at the home of Piper Houdini.
