Well, I spoke to Ward Hall and he doesn't even have a copy of this book! I couldn't believe it.....so if anyone has a copy or knows where I can find one, let me know.

James Taylor might know. He collects all kinds of stuff like that for Shocked and Amazed. Hope that helps.

Ward really never has much of his own stuff...try Atomic Books, they publish most everyting he has written.

I'm not sure Trinket.....the guy on ebay doesn't have the cover up. Check him out though...he's got a tons of circus/sideshow dvds...lots of history. Have you got "Sideshow-Alive On the Inside"? That's another good one. By the way, what acts do you do Trinket? I checked out your website.....do you have any video of your work? I'm putting together shows in Los Angeles......

I didn't think you wanted to ship anyone out to LA, T-Ray, otherwise I would have responded to your earlier post. And here I thought LA was full of "strange" plastic people. I do have video up on myspace but you have to be a member to view it, not that this is a hard thing to do as it is free.

And I think I just realized that the book I was talking about is "The Last Sideshow".... which is a very fun photography book with pics of Ward, Chris, Pete, and some other wonderful performers like Roy Houston.

Oh I thought you were talking about the documentary........I checked out your site. The balloon swallow was great......if you could figure out how to pull it back out fully inflated, you would have something CRAZY! Maybe have one attached to your back and then pull that one up and out with your head to the side? I don't know.....or have it under your clothes and intead of pulling out the balloon animal, you pull it fully inflated from under your skirt...like it really went completely through you. That would freak me out! What other fire stuff do you do?

You were kidding right? Tell us you were, even if you weren't.

Doug....I was serious. Did you see Trinket's video? She swallows a long inflated balloon and then pulls a balloon animal from under her skirt. I wanted to see that balloon pulled back out like a sword swallower, but I figured if she could figure out how to pull it from under her skirt instead of the animal.....that would be sick. Not for a kid show.....Smile I would like to see that. I wasn't trying to be rude...she already does it in her act.....and I believe she would smack me quick if I offended her. I know that must have seemed nuts to read!!!
