Houdini among "Legends Untold"

Legends Untold: The Adventures of Annie Oakley, Houdini & Paul Bunyan is a self-published work by E. Gubbins that finds Houdini joining forces with a couple of unlikely allies.

World-class sharpshooter Annie Oakley joins forces with… …peerless escape artist Harry Houdini …giant lumberjack of lore Paul Bunyan …and other larger-than-life figures in an action-packed adventure at the dawn of the 20th Century.

Believe it or not, this is not the first fictional teaming of Houdini and Annie Oakley. Annie and Harry ran together in Adam Glass's popular graphic novel series Rough Riders, as well as Real Science Adventures. However, I'm pretty sure this is his first pairing with Paul Bunyan!

Legends Untold is avalible from (U.S.) and (UK).



  1. HH and Oakley were contemporaries, and I wonder if they ever met.

    1. Good question. I expect they probably did. I never knew that she died just 3 days after Houdini on Nov. 3, 1926.

  2. Houdini alongside Paul Bunyan is one of the wilder juxtapositions to come along. I wonder who the other "larger-than-life figures" are? Maybe P.T. Barnum! (But no competitive magicians, I hope!)
