Disambiguation Notice:

(eng) Do not combine this page with the author page for Grant Maxwell.  They are two different people.  Thank you.

According to Wikipedia, the pen name Maxwell Grant was used by Walter B. Gibson, and also, for Shadow stories, by Theodore Tinsley, Bruce Elliott, & Dennis Lynds. Note that there are several titles in the 336 book Shadow series that have the same name. Alibi Trail (237 and 304), Jade Dragon (244 and 321), The Shadow Meets the Mask (228 and 284) and Wizard of Crime (180 and 264). The difference is hopefully indicated like this : Alibi Trail [Book 237] Alibi Trail [Book 304] etc. Under the pen name Andy Adams, Gibson is credited with writing at least five of the twelve novels in the Biff Brewster juvenile adventure and mystery series for adolescent boys: Brazilian Gold Mine Mystery, Mystery of the Mexican Treasure, Mystery of the Ambush in India, Egyptian Scarab Mystery, and Mystery of the Alpine Pass.

Kort biografi
Walter B. Gibson gained popularity as a prolific American author after graduating in 1920 from Colgate University. Originally, he worked as a newspaperman and composer of crosswords and other puzzles. In 1931, he created the pulp-fiction character The Shadow, for which he wrote more than 300 novel-length stories, published under the pen name Maxwell Grant. He was the ghost-writer for numerous books on magic and spiritualism by Harry Houdini, Howard Thurston, Harry Blackstone, Joseph Dunninger, and the Amazing Kreskin. He authored more than 100 books on magic, psychic phenomena, true crime, mysteries, rope knots, yoga, hypnotism, and games. He also wrote five novels in the Biff Brewster juvenile adventure series of the 1960s. He was elected into the Society of American Magicians Hall of Fame.
Oplysning om flertydighed
Do not combine this page with the author page for Grant Maxwell.  They are two different people.  Thank you.

According to Wikipedia, the pen name Maxwell Grant was used by Walter B. Gibson, and also, for Shadow stories, by Theodore Tinsley, Bruce Elliott, & Dennis Lynds. Note that there are several titles in the 336 book Shadow series that have the same name. Alibi Trail (237 and 304), Jade Dragon (244 and 321), The Shadow Meets the Mask (228 and 284) and Wizard of Crime (180 and 264). The difference is hopefully indicated like this : Alibi Trail [Book 237] Alibi Trail [Book 304] etc. Under the pen name Andy Adams, Gibson is credited with writing at least five of the twelve novels in the Biff Brewster juvenile adventure and mystery series for adolescent boys: Brazilian Gold Mine Mystery, Mystery of the Mexican Treasure, Mystery of the Ambush in India, Egyptian Scarab Mystery, and Mystery of the Alpine Pass.

Houdini is probably one of the best known magicians of all time - if not much about his life, then his prowess as an escape artist. This was a great peek inside Houdini's life on the stage and some of his greatest acts, including a break-down of how the tricks were done. If you've ever enjoyed shows like Breaking the Magician's Code then you're going to thoroughly enjoy that aspect of this book. If you're interested in learning more about Houdini's life, then there's plenty to keep you engaged within these pages as well. I enjoyed both aspects, and loved learning more about one of the greatest magicians who ever lived from a book that is both well-written and accessible, even for those not initiated into the secrets of magic.… (mere)

I received a review copy of this to-be-republished copy of the 1961 original from BookSirens. I wasn't sure if I had read this maybe 47-49 years ago as I had read everything Houdini in my small town and small school libraries. A lot seemed familiar, but I don't know. Regardless, it is an excellent source for Houdini's magic, describing the different tricks, escape, and illusions, the reviews and media promos of the day, and most importantly, the detailed descriptions of each "secret"and how he performed them. I doesn't come with a "don't try this at home" warning, but it probably should, as even with the answers, most of these took the skills of Houdini or similarly trained experts to pull them off. If you are a fan of Erich Weiss and haven't seen this yet, I recommend it.… (mere)

Synopsis:

From Wikipedia

Harry Vincent, saved from suicide by The Shadow, is recruited to watch Scanlon, courier for Wang Foo, the Chinatown mastermind. Cronin murders Scanlon, but fails to find the metal Chinese disk Scanlon uses as an identifier. Vincent finds the disk, poses as the courier, is exposed, captured, tortured, and saved by The Shadow. Millionaire Geoffrey Laidlow is killed for his hidden jewels; the rest of the story involves searching for Laidlow's killer, and the killer searching for the jewels, to be fenced with the Chinatown mastermind. In the end, the criminal mastermind's lawyer Ezekiel Bingham, is free and unpunished. Diamond Bert Farwell, exposed as Wang Foo, goes to jail.

My Thoughts:

Riders of Skaith started reviewing the The Shadow books last year. I'm glad I jumped on the bandwagon as I rather enjoyed this novel. But everything Riders says about Harry Vincent is totally true, sigh.
