Well I finally got a copy of this book and I must say it is truly what everyone says
"A Gem" if you haven't got it, then you need to!

I'll second that emotion!

By the way, the first edition of the book had a record with Eugene Burger's narrations of "The Dollhouse of Millie Riggs" and "The Fox Sisters".

Those two recordings are now on his website at http://www.yourmagic.com/MagicBeard/presentations.html

If you want to hear how a storyteller paces his voice to generate emotion, have a listen.
(They can be heard through mp3 and flash 5 versions)

Used to be fun listening to Milli Riggs in a darkened room :) A great story, well told.

This is an invaluable textbook of how to conduct an effective theatrical seance. I used it as a major touchstone in designing the Houdini Seance for the Chicago Assembly of the SAM this past Halloween.

Another helpful resource, though not a replacement for Spirit Theatre by any means, is Lee Earle's Manifestations. And for insight into conducting a commercial, non gimmicked, but quite powerful in-home seance, I'm quite impressed with Brother Shadow's Have Seance, Will Travel.

I agree, Necro. "Have Seance, Will Travel" is an excellent commercial seance for the home audience.
