The hard-to-find final book of Nelson's ghost show trilogy - now available once again and better than ever.
In this ebook, Nelson sets out the details for designing and framing of the ghost show, securing bookings for the act, the setup and tear-down, and finally, tips and suggestions for the operation of your very own spook show.
