Discuss the latest news and rumors in the magic world.

Last Wednesday I had the extreme honor of participating in the 2012 Official Houdini Sance in Fort Worth, Texas. The event was held at The Masonic Center on Halloween and was organized by Arthur Moses in cooperation with William Radner. For me it was a non-stop two day mind-blowing journey into the world of Houdiniana like I've never experienced.

I've shared my full experience on my blog below (worth checking out if just for the pics):

I'd also recommend Scott Well's The Magic Word podcast. Scott was the medium this year and he's posting a few podcasts containing interviews his did during the event.

Attendee Joe Notaro has also posted a good report:

This was an awesome, once-in-a-lifetime event for me. It was the first time in many years that people outside the "Inner Circle" were invited to participate. Tickets were sold at two levels: $35 and $100 for which you received nice collectible gifts in addition to being a part of history. Nearly 200 people traveled from around the U.S. to attend.

A couple seance updates.

I wrote up a report on the seance for the December Magic Castle newsletter. Rich Cowley, who did a very nice job with the layout, generously allowed me to post the two pages on my website:

Also, Arthur Moses has just released a 29 min DVD of seance highlights:
