We're entering the season of ghosts, goblins, and things that go bump in the night. Normally I don't put much stock into paranormal phenomena, but a very odd thing happened as I was trying to organize material for this month's column. Because I am an enormously disorganized person, I need my everyday life to be as calm as possible when I sit down to write the reviews. My home was far from calm this month. It was as if an occult hand had reached out and touched all of the animals in my house, causing them to forget that they had ever been housebroken. Pandemonium ensued. The animals were completely disoriented, and most distraught of all was my wife, who had very nearly reached the decision to harvest all our creatures for their meat and fur.
Fortunately, in 48 hours everything had quieted down, and the animals had recalled that the living room carpet was not a litter box. In fact, the only one having any problems now is me.
Another odd occurrence this month is the selection of books which crossed the reviewer's deck. Each of the five is devoted to a singular aspect of magic performance. And each of the five is excellent and worth your consideration.
By the way, I should mention that I had a great time at the Abbott' Get-Together this year, although the second-hand smoke festival held at the Legion Hall got to be a little overwhelming. My thanks to Greg Bordner and his crew.
