Welcome to another year of WILD ABOUT HARRY!
This year marks the start of what I hope will be a new chapter for me. I've reconfigured my life and work so that I can give a new level of commitment to writing what I envision as two books about Houdini, one for release in 2024 to mark the 150th anniversary of his birth and the second in 2026 to make the 100th anniversary of his death. But there is still research and writing to be done and hopefully my new situation will allow me to travel and focus on achieving my goals. So, yes, it's time I got serious about Houdini!
I don't really know how or if this will effect this blog. Certainly I will not let any Houdini news, events, or new publications slip past. But how much time I will give to writing and researching original posts on Houdini history I cannot say. My new priority needs to be the books and that is what I should sit down to each day. But part of the fun of this blog is sharing my research discoveries along the way, so I suspect not much will change. But if I go several days or a weeks without serving up some fresh Houdini history, know that is is a good sign. It means I'm the kitchen cooking up a Houdini feast!
So that's the road ahead as I see it on this January 1, 2022.
Happy New Year!
