Another winner from Mark Edward…Dedicated to Bascom Jones and with a Forward by Jules Lenier, this new version contains all Mark’s original manuscripts as written prior to editing and modification by the previous hardbound publisher in 1997. Many routines have been completely re-written, re-formatted and improved.
Nineteen essays on the Art of Seance plus 26 routines and effects that run from standard mentalism to geek show stunts. New additional material left out of the book such as “Etiquette of Seance,” “Eulogy for the Common Soul,” “Mis-Fired: A Bit of Black Humor,” “A Sample Prop Letter from Miskatonic University,” “Extended Music Compendium,” “Mediumistic Radio Guide” and as an addition to the Alien Evidence Chapter, an “Are You an Abductee?” checklist. All Mark’s collected artwork has been put back together the way he was originally envisioned it and new images and photography have been added where they were left out. If you have been trying to get a copy of Mark’s first “out-of-print” book, now it can be yours – streamlined and at a more reasonable price.
Read the reviews in MUM. Linking Ring or ask fellow Mediums about the value of this book.

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.
