Walter Gibson

(Germantown, Pennsylvania, 12th September 1897 - 6th December 1985)

Gibson’s interest in magic began at an early age, when in 1905 at the age of 8 he was given a trick box.

During the 1920s Gibson’s output was prolific. In total he produced 6,800 daily articles that appeared at a rate of 680 a year, including "After Dinner Tricks", "A Puzzle a Day", Magic Made Easy and others. Additionally he wrote weeklies, ghosted books for Thurston and released several books under his own name - in total he wrote 187 books.

In 1931 Gibson was approached by the pulp fiction magazine publishers Street and Smith, who wanted a writer to produce a pulp magazine series called "The Shadow", based on the character of a popular "Detective Radio Drama". Gibson delivered under the pen name Maxwell Grant (devised from his friendship with two stage magicians, Max Holden and U. F. Grant). It was such a success that he wrote some 283 shadow novels. Through all this time he maintained an estimated 1 Million words a year annual output.

Magic Made Easy

Walter Gibson

Magic Made Easy by Walter GibsonThis is a lovely and unusual publication with more than 200 feats described. Walter B. Gibson had a magic column in the Public Ledger, a newspaper in Philadelphia. The entire run of his columns is collected in this publication.

You will find many simple magic tricks as well as some puzzles, stunts and brain teasers. While many will be familiar to most who have read similar collections of little tricks, there are a few real surprises I have not seen anywhere else.

1st digital edition 2013, 246 pages.

The New Conjurors' Magazine: Volume 1

Walter Gibson

The New Conjurors' Magazine: Volume 1 by Walter GibsonThe first Conjurors' Magazine made its appearance in 1792 in London under the editorship of Henry Lemoine. This, the first monthly periodical ever devoted to the art of magic, featured "singular deceptions, philosophical amusements, curious experiments, mathematical operations and sympathetic secrets."

Then in 1906 Harry Houdini together with his brother Theo Hardeen revived this almost forgotten publication under the title of The Conjurer's Monthly Magazine (spelled with an 'e' instead of an 'o').

In 1945 Walter B. Gibson and Julian Proskauer gave this title another shot at life and started...

Popular Card Tricks

Walter Gibson

Popular Card Tricks by Walter GibsonWalter Gibson intended this book for the novice. All the tricks are quite easy to perform. And in the beginning under the heading "The Presentation of Card Tricks" Gibson gives very valuable advice of how to create a program and how to present it.

Nevertheless the book is so good that even the intermediate and advanced card magician will be able to learn a lot from its pages.

This book was originally written by Walter B. Gibson for Houdini. Houdini's death in 1926 prevented him putting it out, and Walter issued it under his own name. Ted Annemann considered it one of the best books in its field . . . it...
