Notability[edit]

I'm still a little fuzzy on notability of books, but this book has been reviewed in detail in Girl's Life Magazine (December 1, 2007), the Washington Post (January 13, 2008)and was nominated for an Edgar award (Juvenile) in 2008. Don't know if that is enough, but it's still a really good book. shorlin (talk) 19:18, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

Very Good Book[edit]

Hi my name is Anonymous. I am a fifth grader at a Mystery school. I'm reading this book now Tuesday, Febraury 3, 2009 and its very extraordinary. I even think of getting the whole series if more come out. I'm telling you, you should get this book and read. This author Pseudonymous Bosch it's your pen name right. Well you have convinced me to make books just like you with an anonymous name. Hope you make more of suspenseful stories P.S.= his name is Raphael Simon

Wrong information about Dr. L[edit]

It says in the biography part that BOTH Dr. L and Miss Mauvais lived in the 1800's. This is incorrect, as Dr L (being the magicians twin brother) was 9 years old in World War 2, and had to flee to America when Mussolini came to power. This is a long time before he event met Mauvais, so he cannot have lived in the 1800's according to the book.

Excuse me, but who ruined it??? I didn't want to know that Max-Ernest was writing it the whole time!!! I've not read the fourth of fifth books yet! We should get rid of that! 62sameera (talk) 20:45, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

Authors identity[edit]

I

co-incidence?[edit]

Has anyone else noticed the the name of the 'dead' magician (Pietro Bergamo) has the same inicials as pseudonymous bosch? From do you think they're the same person? I highly doubt Bosch didn't notice this, even if it isn't the way it's supposed to be. I'm reading #2 now, and I have #3 so I'll post again soon if it turns out to be anything!

Article Issues[edit]

I've cleaned up the Article and added a 'Reception' section which also takes into account the negative reaction.

So that's the "fan site" issue resolved.

I've given it reliable references.

So that's the "no references" issue resolved.

This thing was nominated for an Edgar Award, was a New York Times best-seller, and reviewed by the Washington Post and numerous other magazines and newspapers (Worcester News, Sunday World).

So that's the "notability" complaint destroyed.

I think we can take down the whole notice now, as it makes the page look blemished and somewhat messy. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Mark Sheridan (talkcontribs) 19:24, 4 March 2010 (UTC)

US or UK?[edit]

In the infobox, it says that the book was published in the United States (the website and publishers confirm this). However, the UK cover of the book is shown. The original cover, first edition (if possible) is always in the infobox. I am going to upload the U.S. edition. --Glimmer721 talk 21:58, 20 October 2010 (UTC)
