Updates on Houdin E-book

By Tom Interval

Here are a few updates regarding my e-book, Harry Houdin: “The Great Polynational Mimic”:

Radio Interview: Jim Mora, host of Radio New Zealand National’s “Afternoons,” interviewed me back in November about Houdin and my e-book about him. You can listen to the 14-minute interview here.

Newspaper Story: The Taranaki Daily News in New Plymouth, New Zealand, did a feature story on Houdin and my e-book. You can read the feature here.

Updates to E-book: Last month I updated the e-book with some additional facts, and it’s now available on Amazon and Google Books. Please note that Amazon’s system requires authors to sell Kindle e-books for no less than $0.99, so it’s not listed as Free there. However, as always, you can download it for free at Smashwords in several formats, including Kindle, iPad, PDF, RTF, HTML, and others.

UPDATE (December 10, 2013): This e-book is now also available at the Internet Archive,  Lybrary.com, and Barnes & Noble. Note: As of this update, there are two ratings on B&N: one three-star and one one-star. I don’t think the latter was a fair assessment. I put a lot of work into that e-book, and there really wasn’t much about Houdin to go on, not to mention it’s the first publication devoted to that particular obscure performer. True, it’s not bestseller material, but it’s definitely worth a read if you’re a magic historian or have an interest in early touring acts in Australia or New Zealand.

If you have any suggestions, additions, corrections, or general feedback about the book, please contact me.
