From Mark Edward. The final additional notes from “RESTLESS PLOTS” and “SENSE AND SEANCE” are now ready to ship. These are the collected odds and ends which have existed as work resources and outlines for several of Mark’s best séance and psychic entertainment productions including my complete Houdini Séance script, plus all the story notes, scripts and prop lists for the Lady Diana, Bela Lugosi, Sharon Tate, Jack the Ripper and Aleister Crowley séances. Most have been re-formatted especially far this book, while others remain in their rough form just as Mark has used them over the years. Here is the cream of the crop for all Mark’s best ghost stories and psychic investigations he created for bizarre storytelling séance work, readings and editorial columns from my “900 phone line years” written for FATE and FORETOLD magazines.
Also in this volume are suggestions and notes used for television segments Mark has appeared in and the traditional pagan Handfasting Ritual that was performed at The Edinburgh Gathering in 2001. This book is filled with the real “real work” that needs to be done by anyone serious about perfecting their role as a contemporary spirit medium. “LOOSE ENDS” concludes with a Compendium of Essential Séance Tools designed to give the reader the ultimate access to effects and accoutrements that have stood the test of time in the world of mediumship.
If you liked Mark’s previous two books and want to complete the trilogy with some powerful food for thought as well as some killer routines – this is the book that separates those who know how to do their homework from those who dare to dabble. LOOSE ENDS / 70 duplex printed pages, produced in 8.5″ x 11″ format, printed on 24 lb. Camel Hair Gold paper. Heavy black coil bound and wrapped in illustrated plastic covered parchment card stock.
Mark Edward is a professional mentalist who specializes in magic of the mind. He has spent over twenty five years in world class venues from high-end night clubs and theaters to hundreds of private party and corporate events. As one of only five specially chosen and trained mediums in the history of Hollywood’s famed Magic Castle, he has performed fifteen years of seances that helped him perfect the role of spirit medium and psychic entertainer. During this time he wrote several books on these subjects and appeared on television as both primary consultant and on-air performer in such diverse programming as A & E’s Biography: “Houdini, the Great Escape,” NBC’s “The Other Side” and “Psychic Secrets Revealed,” The Sci-Fi Channel’s “Mysteries, Magic and Miracles,” The Discovery Channel’s “Forces Beyond,” and most recently on two episodes of The Learning Channel’s “Exploring the Unknown.” His featured segment as a spirit medium on the pilot episode of Showtime’s “Penn & Teller’s Bullshit!” series entitled “Speaking with the Dead” helped secure an Emmy Award nomination for that episode in 2002. He continues to be consulted by the media for his knowledge of spiritualism, psychic fraud and ghost lore.
Mark also spent over ten years as a “professional psychic” working on a 900 telephone service and observing spiritualist church groups while at the same time acting on the editorial board of the highly acclaimed Skeptic magazine. He has written articles for various metaphysical magazines including Foretold where his activities as a consulting ghost hunter attracted the attention of other periodicals such as Fate Magazine, The Altar Flame, Magic, The New Invocation, Seance Magazine, Vibrations, and Magick.
