As if my interest in magic didn't help to prove that I am indeed a geek, here is yet more evidence. I am thrilled to learn that the entire Popular Science magazine archive is now online! So, why does that matter to me as a magician? Well, as evidenced by the image of Houdini above, there have been many magic related articles in the publication over the years. This article on Houdini was published almost exactly one year before Houdini's death in 1926. In December of 1925, there was a follow-up piece on his exposure of fake psychics. In 1946 there is an article on Blackstone and his magic workshop.  Find this and much much more by clicking here.
