A Magician's Diary by Stephen Ablett

#1 in Biographies & History hot-list

This is another collection of fifty stories from Stephen's career as a professional magician. Read about his adventures performing on cruise ships, working at a theme park, lecturing for magic clubs and headlining a convention.

There are stories where the birthday girl's father gets arrested during the party, when a pair of drunk mothers had a fist fight in front of the kids, and when Stephen had to defend himself against thieves and liars that could have ruined his career.

This collection of anecdotes will hopeful amuse and entertain. So sit back and enjoy, as you read what it's like to be a working professional magician.
