Just to let everyone know that my new book (based on 40 years of research by the late John Pomeroy) about Alexander will be available in November from Mike Caveney's Magic Words:
218 pages with hundreds of photos (12 pages in full color) with the amazing true story of this magic legend.
End of plug.
Thanks -

David, the book looks very interesting, congratulations on bringing it to fruition. It's always nice to see something based on original research, rather than warmed-over bits and pieces of previously published material.

Thanks for locating and preserving another piece of magical history. SETH

I'm a huge fan of Alexander's. I remember my first bit of memorabilia was an autographed picture of his dated 1919 at the Braudus Theatre. Thanks for writing this book, I'll definately buy one!

I just received David's Alexander book and absolutely loved it! As all of Mike Caveney's books it is very nicely produced. There are many rare photographs and even a section in color. The life of Alexander is not a boring one so you'll find this a book that you can't put down. Thanks again David!

I just received my copy of your book this week and I've placed on my bed stand and anxious to start into it before the Thanksgiving holiday. I have the Clayton book and I will consider that more of a photo album compared to the scholarly text I expect from you. From what I've thumbed through, it looks like Mike Caveney has another best seller on his hands.

Forgive my mistake, I meant to refer to the 1994 Beckman book, "The Life and Times of Alexander, the Man Who Knows," as the "photo album" and not the one by Clayton. I don't know what I was thinking at the time but clearly my fingers got ahead of my brain.
