Editorial Reviews

From the Author

The tale for Houdini's Last Trick began as mere character work I did for The Sixteen Burdens. But this background story of a magician whose true talent lay not in his magic but in his supernatural introspection was too good not to share. So I wrote the story of how Newton's Eye found its way into Houdini's hands and, later, into the hands of other characters in Book 1 of the Burdens Trilogy. It's a fun start to the series that you can enjoy either before or after reading The Sixteen Burdens.

About the Author

David Khalaf was born in Orange County, California. He studied print journalism at the University of Southern California, where he served as editor of the Daily Trojan newspaper and held court on the patio outside Carl's Jr. He later went to graduate school at USC for creative writing. He has been a waiter longer than he cares to remember. David wrote his first full novel, a futuristic social satire, right out of college. It's still sitting on a high shelf somewhere. Don't go looking for it. The Sixteen Burdens series grew in part out of David's interest in Los Angeles history and in Hollywood during the Golden Age of film. After nearly twenty years in Los Angeles, he came to know the city well, mostly after getting lost. He currently lives in Portland, Oregon. He still gets lost sometimes. If you're interested in stalking David and discovering fun curiosities from 1930s and '40s American culture, follow his author page on
