John, I love that book. Now that you mention it, I should reread it and post a review. I really liked how the flim-flam merged with the tone of stage magic. Definitely a fun experience because of it's silliness and "seriousness" even if you're overly YouTube enriched.

Mark Walker did a book about spook shows a few years ago entitled, "Ghostmasters." If you haven't read it already, it is well worth a read. One of the presenters mentioned (I believe it was Card Mondor) is also mentioned in David Friedman's book "A Youth in Babylon." It's interesting how these folks drifted from job to job on this circuit.
