The letter shows a very different side to Houdini's personality to say the least. Here is the link to the letter: Houd...

Richard,

No, I know it's not new. I just like the idea that more people can knock-off the originals easier. I can only imagine all those tired feet at the Xerox machine. Now you can send/copy brand new material and share with everyone at the club. That was my thought on it.

Re: L&L Publishing eBooks

At least one magic tradition will survive and probably rise to a new level, the copy/knock-off.

Passing these files and DVDS around makes so much easier soon. So there is another upside.
