Harry Houdini Mysteries: The Houdini Specter by Daniel Stashower - Harry Houdini is still struggling to make a name for himself in turn-of-the-century New York.

From photographer Richard Dawson: "Willard Library, Evansville; Indiana, 2011. Built in 1885, this is the oldest public library in Indiana. Housed in a spectacular Victorian building, it is rumored to be haunted. While photographing a dark corner of the interior, I thought I saw the resident ghost.
