That’s right – I’m starting to get email from readers indicating that they now own my new edition of The Long-Lost Friend. You can order a copy at your local bookstore, or buy it online.
By an odd coincidence, it turns out that another book by John Georg Hohman on magic will appear this month. Patrick Donmoyer has issued a new edition of Hohman’s little-known work, Der Freund in der Noth (or The Friend in Need), a short work of magic published seven years before The Long-Lost Friend. The book is only available through the Pennsylvania German Cultural Heritage Center via check or money order, so you’ll need to go to their site to start the process.
