The Magic Newswire

Jim Steinmeyer joins us again to tell the story of the man that he calls "The Last Greatest Magician in the World," Howard Thurston.  Jim's new book explores how Thurston went from a homeless hobo with a checkered past to one of the most successful performers of his age.  While Houdini's daring stunts were legendary, Steinmeyer says Thurston was the public's favorite, captivating audiences with his self-assured grandeur.   There is no greater expert on the history of magic and few stories as interesting as that of Thurston as portrayed in Jim's latest book.
