Magic, Mysteries and Movies

Discussions of new films, books, television shows, and media indirectly related to magic and magicians. For example, there may be a book on mnemonics or theatrical technique we should know or at least know about.

Magic, Mysteries and Movies

Postby Jack Shalom » August 3rd, 2021, 9:48 pm

You may be interested in this interview I did with John Gaspard, the author of the mysteries The Ambitious Card, The Bullet Catch, The Miser's Dream and more. As you may have guessed this detective series has a magician at its center. The books are clever, witty, funny, and a great way to pass a few hours. John talks about his Eli Marks series as well as his other pursuits here:

Great podcast, Jack.

I ordered one of his novels immediately and am happily 10 chapters in. No idea "who did it."

My wife gave me the first six in the series for Christmas. Looks like I’ve got some reading to do.
