Within the Dark Circle by unknown

This hard-to-find text on trumpet mediumship and fraudulent spiritism is now updated and better than ever.

Audiences enjoy seeing the psychic entertainer reveal the inside secrets of fraudulent mediums. And now, thanks to this rare old manuscript, you can. We love the title, for it really sets the mood, as the manifestations described take place in the dark, around the séance table. This is just the ticket for hosting a regular series of entertaining séances at your home, or that of your client.

And that's not all. Only in this edition is revealed a modern-day source for obtaining a spirit trumpet that you can use as a prop in your act. It also makes a dandy device for the newspaper photo shoot, allowing the picture to inform your potential audience that you really are an expert on the subject.

Plus, this revised and updated ebook includes insights into the original author, known only as "Anonymous." In all, five chapters of new content has been added, as well as a host of relevant illustrations from magic and occult sources.
