Seems to be one of the elusive books I can't get my hands on in my never ending quest of learning all things bizarre. I have everything from Final Curtain to the Arcana of Bizarre Magick but I can't find Hauntiques. Is this being sold as an brook anywhere or is it a matter of getting it second hand?

On eBay it is for sale regularly (at high prices), but sometimes the seller is open to your price offers.

You could ask the Curator on this forum, he might be able to help you...

I tried that and he didn't have any available. If anyone has a copy they'd like to part with, let me know.

Obviously, the reader didn't open it...
If you read French, you should read Legendes Urbaines, Compendium Sortilegionis and Fabula Hemetika.

I opened it sir. I just don't read French.

Someone recently had one in the books for sale section, I can't find it now. Why does the Café not keep post from that section up longer? the oldest post is July 30th?

Wowza! $325 is a bit steep.

I got a copy off the big auction site a couple of months ago for £60 - just add it to your saved searches.

Probably the one I sold for 50.00 here.

[i]Hauntiques[/i] is long out of print: it sold out in less than a year! Not many copies come out on the second hand market, but eBay is indeed your best chance to find one. I don't have any copies left (other than my own).

The same can't be said for [i]Paradise Lost[/i], the trick I produced shortly after [i]Hauntiques[/i]: I still have a few copies left.

Good luck!

This is such a wonderful piece of theater that is so well conceived! I own two and strongly folks who are looking for a well-made and well-thought-out routine to look into Paradise Lost!

Hauntiques is such a wonderful book. I nearly sold mine years ago when strapped for cash, glad I held onto it. Good luck with your search.

I'm about to retire...and I have to downsize. I've been putting a few books up for sale (but I'm very slow at getting it done...I dislike selling things...my heart's not in it...but sometimes one must). Hauntiques is one of them... http://ebay.us/5RReZ6
