Amongst other stories it relates closely the controversy surrounding Houdini’s appearance at the Palace Theatre, Blackburn in October 1902 when he faced one of his severestchallenges from William Hope Hodgson, who was to go on to be a writer of fantasy literature before his death in the First World War. Houdini, a master of showmanship and publicity, was able to exploit the ordeal for many yearsafterwards. (Long out of print the 2013 edition of this book is now available in a comb bound format)
