WIZARD WARS on SYFY, Starring Penn & Teller

It's official: Wizard Wars, the SIX-PART SERIES (!!!), airs on Syfy starting on August 19th at 10pm. What began as a fun project in my living room has evolved into a full-blown reality competition show starring Penn & Teller as judges. They're joined by SO many other incredible magicians...too many to list in one blog post.

Fool Me Once Reviews from the Local Press

All three of Las Vegas’s alternative weeklies like my book. For the most part.

If I had to put grades on the reviews, I’d say that Las Vegas Weekly gave me an A, CityLife gave me a B+, and Vegas Seven gave me a B.

Here are the highlights:

CityLife: "It's an oddly addicting read."

4 Reviews from 4 Blogs

The blogosphere likes my book, for the most part.

Here are the highlights of some recent blog reviews:

From BellasNovella:

"Part memoir, part random facts—it brought to mind Freakonomics (and not just because Lax mentions the book), but was a much more enjoyable read. All the ingredients for a quick fiction read: the love story, the humor, the fun ensemble cast - it had a relatable, fun tone, not often found in memoirs."
