I'm starting to gain interests in the older mentalists. (CAREERS that is Smile ) What's the bottom line on Stuart?

Stuart Cumberland was a brilliant writer. His stories were very entertaining.

Based on the list, there are several books missing (perhaps they are the "bonus" books). The Queen's Highway, for example, was a brilliant book on Canada's coast to coast railway. Perhaps Todd was focusing only on the mentalism related products. But, at $20 bucks, it's hard to beat.

It's ALWAYS good to learn about the history of mentalists.

No less than Houdini himself (who rarely gave another credit) said that Stuart Cumberland was the world's ultimate authority on Anti-Spiritualism. Not to mention his brilliant career as one of the original mentalists using contact mind-reading. I for one am very much looking forward to reading his writings.

Some of his work is available out of copyright online.. http://www.archive.org/search.php?query=......t%20C%22

But I'm still probably going to get this collection. It looks like it has lots of goodies.

Thanks Stuart.
I can at least see if I like his writing style. I honestly don't read much, so it helps if I enjoy reading the authors thoughts Smile
