With a flash of light and a cloud of smoke the Scrolls Book Group
reappears on stage to entertain and amaze you. (Or at the
very least distract you from the smelly tramp in the corner, the
squalling kid in the back and that really creepy looking guy on the
seat opposite - No, don't look!)
Ably assisted by Kehaar from Dissecting Worlds and guest contributer Gazbox in their skin-tight golden bikinis, we take a focussed look at Chistopher Priest's most celebrated work,The Prestige. You may have watched Christopher Nolan's film adaptation and think you've seen this trick before but trust us, there's a whole lot more going on in the wings.
There are spoilers throughout - we couldn't really avoid them - but have we really revealed the authors secrets... or has he left us bamboozled and looking in the wrong direction?
Read the book, listen in to our thoughts, then let us know what you think. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet @scrollscast
