So good. So Young. Soto.

The Athletic

Hi everybody. So, first of all, thank you all for mentioning “The Life and Afterlife of Harry Houdini,” on your favorite social networks. It means the world to me. At one point, I got a text from someone basically saying, “Man, your book is clogging up my entire Twitter feed.” That made me very happy.

I mean, think about what it was knocking off of Twitter.

I’m in Los Angeles now for one more event. It’s tonight, 7 p.m., at Vroman’s Bookstore in Pasadena. It should be a lot of fun, we’re going to have John Cox, who is one of the stars of the book and the leading Houdini expert in the world in my view. And we’re going to have a very special guest star of magic. It should be a blast.

And tomorrow, I’ll be in Kansas City at the Unity Temple on the Plaza. That is going to be a fantastic event, like all Rainy Day Book events are. I cannot wait. And then Friday, I get my arm ready to sign all those preorders. It’s going to be fun.

Then a weekend home and I’m off to New York. If you’re in New York, I’ll be at Mysterious Bookshop on Oct. 29 and would love to see you there. Will also be running around town doing some awesome podcasts and Halloween things that I’ll tell you about when the time is right, so maybe I’ll just see you around town. In a city of 8.6 million, I’d say there’s a pretty good chance.

If you see someone in a Houdini T-shirt, it’s probably me.

It has been fun and exhausting, but I still have to write about the World Series, right? So I wrote today about Juan Soto. What a player.

Juan Soto is not the future. He’s the present.
