Last Train to Spookville by Will Andrade and B. W. McCarronLast Train to Spookville
by Will Andrade and
B. W. McCarron

A four-act spirit séance in a box!

A bell placed in the cabinet rings out answers to questions. A handkerchief takes on life and moves about the cabinet, even flying outside it! A pair of slates reveals an answer to a thought-of question.

And now for the finale! A committee of spectators seals three blank sheets of paper inside a glass fruit jar. The jar is placed in the cabinet, in plain sight, with a fountain pen and bottle of ink. When the paper is removed by the committee, it's discovered that the spirits have accurately predicted the outcome of a pair of previous tests!

To top it off, the spirit writing provides an accurate physical description of one of the committee members — who was chosen at random! No plants or stooges are used — any audience members can serve on the committee.

This revised edition now includes instructions to construct and decorate your own version of the Thayer "A Trip to Spookville" cabinet. Additional presentations are also included.

Original Thayer Spookville cabinets sell for many hundreds of dollars, when they appear on the market. Now you can build your own or modify one of two well-known magic props for very little cost. This book tells you how. Now you, too, can perform this enchanting effect that your audience will long remember.

Magic World updated and enlarged edition includes new illustrations and significant added content has been added to bring the original manuscript to life for a new generation of performers.
