Volume III, The Crowning Miracles; more great magic and more great stories from Eric’s postwar years. Not just nuts and bolts magic but the reader is kept entranced by a continuous flow of interesting anecdotes about a wide variety of magicians, both famous and otherwise.

On two occasions Eric Lewis was voted Stage Magician of the Year by Hollywood’s Magic Castle and in 1985 they presented him with their highest award The Masters Fellowship. His trilogy providess a words-eye view of the magic he invented and built. The descriptions are surrounded by dozens of anecdotes concerning the magicians he met and knew during his 50 years in England such as Robert Harbin, Will Goldston, Goodliffe, Maurice Fogel, Dante and so many more. Eric’s original effects range from children’s magic, mentalism and close-up to the largest stage magic and illusions. The Crowning Miracles is the final volume in Eric’s trilogy.
