Magic Monday ~ Transparent Man!


I like Mondays. I also like magic. I figured I’d combine the two and make a Monday feature that is truly me: a little bit of magic and a look at the week ahead.

Do you know what I like more than magic? Science! Lucky for me, there’s a lot of overlap between the two. Richard Wiseman of Quirkology takes a look at an old, but never staged, light illusion that illustrates some of the current science behind invisibility. (If you click through, a link in the video’s description has more on the science of the illusion and on Robert Harbin, inventor of the Zig-Zag Girl.)

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?

Spiritualism in Nineteenth-Century New Orleans: The Life and Times of Henry Louis Rey The Raven and the Reindeer The Guns of Retribution

All are ebooks for #COYER.

  • I started Spiritualism in Nineteenth-Century New Orleans a little early, but I was only 15% of the way through before the weekend. It’s an ARC that I want to make sure I get it finished by next Wednesday.
  • I’ve been meaning to read more of Ursula Vernon’s fiction; The Raven and the Reindeer seemed seasonally appropriate.
  • Next up: The Guns of Retribution by Icy Sedgwick.
  • I’ll also be finishing the last story in Asimov’s Mysteries for Deal Me In. (Okay, that’s not an ebook, but Deal Me In precedes all other reading challenges.)
