Write A Review

Walter Gibson, magician, author, and creator of "The Shadow," was the most prolific writer in magic history. Gibson wrote 187 books, contributed 668 articles to periodicals, created 283 stories for the Shadow Magazine, wrote 48 syndicated feature columns, reported the adventures of the Shadow and Harry Blackstone in 394 comic books and newspaper strips, helped develop 147 radio scripts, and created many other works under various pseudonyms. He invented many widely used magic tricks and was a close friend of Houdini, Thurston, Dunninger, and Harry Blackstone Senior. With a history like that, don't you think his biography would be an interesting read??? Here is Walter Gibson's life in a 190 page hardbound book. Fascinating stories of his adventures with some of the greats in magic. You will find many surprises about magical history in this book. Walter Gibson's entire life was intertwined with everything that was going on in the magic world and it is en exciting biography to read. I highly recommend this book.
