Lovecraft eZine reader and frequent video chatter James Harrison’s job is pretty cool: He’s a magician. Recently James told me about a magic trick he does involving the Necronomicon! Watch him perform it in the video below.
Here’s his description of the magic trick:
The urban legend of the Necronomicon is brought up and the book is introduced. So the spectator doesn’t go crazy reading the book, the magician asks the spectator to peek at just one word.
The magician closes the book and begins to figure out what the chosen word is. Once found out, the magician says it was easy, it’s tattooed on your arm. Which it is. Good thing they didn’t choose more than one word.
I usually pick pockets, but I always try to sneak in a little Lovecraft in people’s lives.
