daniels The Deceptionary - Links for the Mystery Entertainer

Here you’ll find …

... an idiosyncratic collection of mystery-entertainment-related links that interest the author, and perhaps you. It is not intended to be comprehensive in any way, and favours topics relating to mentalism, readings, and the bizarre. (Note: “★” denotes a forum.)

This page memorializes the late Marcello Truzzi,
who delighted in sending his friends
“links of possible interest”.
