Hugh Miller

(Wishaw, Scotland: 27th April 1937 - )

Born in Scotland at a time when the British still believed Chamberlain was a shrewd operator, Hugh Miller entered adolescence tainted by social lunacy. With the powerful energy generated by gaelic despair, he hurtled through a formal education and out into a broad variety of activities. Has been a TV film cameraman and stills photographer, a civil servant, an assistant to a police pathologist, a protegee of the famous Dr. John Grierson, an investigator with an international enquiry organisation, author of several books, editor of a magazine and an active student of dishonest gambling. Took up magic to combat a tendency to bite his nails. With Unique Studios as manager 1963-64 and co-owner 1965-70.

His hobbies are Hi-Fi, photograpy, magic and alcohol, though rarely in that order.

He is now a full-time novelist and tends to live wherever the fancy takes him, although he has a marked preference for the Shakespeare country.

Wrote 9 books on the magic of Roy Baker, Horace Bennett, Eddie Joseph, Al Koran, Marconick, and Rink. Also Magic for Minors (1967; repr 1972, 88pp), A Pocketful of Miracles: The Handbook of Impromptu Magic (1968), Secrets of Gambling (1970; repr 1972, 128pp), and Hypnotism (1977). Now writes crime thrillers (The Dissectors, Skin Deep) and true-crime books.
