Secrets revealed

I promise I'm not going to relentlessly tease the upcoming Houdini diary book that I'm working on with Mike Caveney and Bruce Averbook, especially as we don't even have a release date yet. But, dang-it, some days I'm just too exciting to not share, as I did over the weekend on Instagram.

Truth be told, in my first draft I made an educated guess at what this said based on the context. Over the weekend I found confirmation that I was correct. So I've reworked that annotation. Not that it's anything all the revelatory. But I love being able to nail down the meaning behind every entry and bringing a new Houdini fact into the world.

What did it say? You'll have to wait for the book to find out!

Oh what a tease.


  1. Glad you took the guesswork out of that entry! History and the truth matter!

    1. I think it's ok to put forth an educated guess when you don't have the answer. Just let people know you are guessing and make the case for why.
