The Magic Detective is IN the Linking Ring

Sammy Smith, editor of The Linking Ring, the Official Magazine of the International Brotherhood of Magicians had contacted me back in September and asked if I could write a review of the HOUDINI/History Channel Movie for the magazine. I said, "Sure!". Afterall, I had already written one for my blog. But I wanted to expand on a few things and delve a little deeper into the movie than I had initially done in my blog article.

The article is in the October 2014 issue of The Linking Ring. It's titled "A Magician's Guide to HOUDINI-The MiniSeries." Please check it out if you get a chance. I have had more people contact me regarding that article than just about anything I've written before. It's always nice to hear from people and it's even nicer to know people appreciate what you write.


  1. Nice piece of work. I wish I could say the same for the movie. Like you said, it had the potential to be the greatest biopic of all time.

  2. Thanks Joe. Can you imagine a real biographical movie that was based on fact? I'd love to see a Houdini movie someday win an Oscar or at least be nominated. The potential is there, the story is there, but the will to do the true story is another thing entirely.
