We join Alex on his quest as he uncovers the closely guarded arts of magic and the greatest mysteries of all: Who is this remarkable magician? Why has he chosen to give Alex the most extraordinary secrets of magic? What is he hiding about his shrouded past? The answers await as we follow Alex into the real world of illusion to meet its elusive keymaster...
The Magician in the Attic is the first of the Curlew Chronicles.
Caspian is a thirty-something UK-based illusionist. His style of both writing and performing smacks of the classics with his own modern twist. Approaching twenty years in the magic and deception business led naturally to writing fiction with some deceptive twists and turns.
Originally from Bristol his work has taken him all over the world and he is always on the lookout for the next original idea for an illusion or a plot twist that hasn’t been done before. Outside of work his passions include his faith, steampunk and other Victorianisms, pool, movies and having a near full glass in a near empty bar.
