|Local author Marty Chan reads an excerpt from his new novel |
Ehrich Weisz Chronicles: Demon Gate at a book launch party
at Audrey's Books Tuesday evening.
This dynamic new young adult novel takes some liberties with the story of Ehrich Weisz aka Houdini, focusing on the time Houdini pulled his own disappearing act at the age of 12, Marty Chan imagines a different twist taking the reader to an alternate dimension where technology meets time travel and magic in a book sure to capture the imagination of a young audience.

The Ehrich Weisz Chronicles: Demon Gate
When young Ehrich Weisz - the future illusionist, Harry Houdini - follows his brother, Dash, through a strange portal, he is thrust into an alternate New York where the immigrants aren't just different ethnicities but different species. He finds work in this strange steampunk world as a Demon Hunter, tracking down dangerous otherworldly visitors that threaten the city's safety, while hiding his own foreign origins. A curious medallion, his only clue to finding his brother, leads Ehrich to a mysterious woman caught up in interdimensional intrigue, and he must learn who to trust as he unravels the truth if he ever wants to find his way home.
