Houdini's Australian flight inspires 'Waypoints'

It was 112 years ago today that Houdini made his historic first flight in Australia, so what better day to release a new work of fiction inspired by that history.

Waypoints by Adam Ouston follows Bernard Cripp, the world-weary scion of an ailing family circus, as he tries to unearth every detail of Houdini's flight in order to re-enact it. As his testimony unspools, his story takes on a darker tone: he is, in fact, in mourning for a wife and child he has lost to the skies, and paralysed by an uncertainty surrounding their deaths.

Waypoints by Adam Ouston can be purchased from and You can listen to an interview with the author HERE.
