Callahan wrote the book following an ongoing fascination with Dorothy Dietrich. "I'm honored to inspire a story like this," Dietrich says. "There's a generation of young people who may not know about Houdini, and escapology, but I think we're helping keep that art and history alive."

The Houdini Museum's the only building in the world dedicated to Houdini. Prior to moving to Pennsylvania it was on the top floor The Magic Towne House, New York's first and longest running magic show spot. Magicians like Houdini, Thurston, Doug Henning, David Copperfield, and others wanted to establish a magic venue in New York but it was accomplished by Dorothy Dietrich and Dick Brookz. The first NY magic venue to feature birthday parties, never done by previous magic shops in New York such as Tannens, Abbotts, Holdens, Magic Circle, Circle Magic, etc. It also featured NY's first Houdini Museum on the top floor. These last two innovations have since been imitated by others.
