The Shadow was one of the more popular radio programs that intrigued people and several movies were made as well as a serial. Stories and books devoted to the Shadow's exploits are also to be found as well as other items. Walter Gibson,of whom more can be said later on, worked on the scripts and books,etc. and 'created' the Shadow. Gibson, magician, knew Houdini and he also wrote a book(s) on magic and one book on the popular aspects of occultism,etc. if I am not mistaken...I think I have one or two of his books somewhere in my library collection.
