You didn't know Conan Doyle was into spiritualism? Really? Houdini met Conan Doyle in 1920. Would have loved to have been a fly on the wall for that meeting..... Conan Doyle was totally into spiritualism. He was also actively involved in supporting accused people who were wrongfully accused of crime. Because of his efforts to prove George Edalji innocent of the crime of animal mutilation, the UK Court of Appeals was established. His efforts to overturn the conviction of Oscar Slater in the Scottish murder case of Marion Gilchrist resulted in Slater being set free and Doyle actually pai...

there was a movie done about this it's a kids movie FairyTale: A True Story (1997) I don't know how accurate it is but it does show the opposing views of Houdini and Doyle.

Well, I'm glad I told you some info you didn't have. Given that he created the ultra logical Holmes, it's quite fascinating to know that Conan Doyle was a believer in 'the other side'. If UFO's had been around, he probably would have believed in them as well. He had an open mind, which is more than can be said for Holmes. All in all, I think Conan Doyle was Dr Watson and his teacher, Dr Joseph Bell from Edinburgh Uni, was Sherlock.

"... Rochester Square Spiritualist Temple. As a plaque inside the door attests, Sir Arthur had helped finance its construction in the decade before his death in 1930. Having grown rich through his Sherlock Holmes stories, he had become the world’s most famous exponent of spiritualism." [source: ] Another interesting thing: "...author of many supernatural and weird tales, and of the Sherlock Holmes stories, had a brush with the GD but can be discounted as a member.

You will find these guys get info that's legit ,that no one else has. A few of the early books are about monsanto and the vaccine conspiracy . They know ...someone up high who gives them info . The Gideon series is good too ,but most of us like pendergast a lot better. Relic was made into a movie ,but they left pendergast out !!! The other novels at the bottom ,all feature secondary characters from the pendergast series. The Gideon books have apparently been bought for a movie deal . Most of us have asked for a book with Gideon and pendergast . Would be most amusing . I'...

Eventually Houdini and Doyle had a falling out due to their lg differences in beliefs. Houdini would try/do his very best to expose frauds, and the tricks they used.
