A Great And Fortuitous ‘Find’!

James Randi began his career as a stage magician and escape artist but achieved fame as a professional skeptic, disproving the claims of self-described psychics, mind readers, and faith healers. He is a founder of the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry (formerly CSICOP ). Randi’s eleventh book, A Magician in the Laboratory, will be coming out soon.

This is 458 pages of closely packed texts of correspondence exchanged between the late Martin Gardner and the late Marcello Truzzi between May 1970 and April 1999. It is titled Dear Martin / Dear Marcello (see New and Notable section of this magazine, September/October 2017, p. 60).
