Doyle and Houdini were great friends!
Harry Houdini is one of many memorable characters featured in a new collection of Sherlock Holmes stories – Sherlock Holmes – The Golden Years. In real life, Houdini and Doyle were friends. Doyle was an advocate of Spiritualism, while Houdini was the scourge of fake mediums and spirit guides. These to remarkable men continued a life-long dialogue about “life after death.” This historical fact is brought to life in the new Sherlock Holmes story: The Cure that Kills, by Kim Krisco and published by MX Publishing.
