Houdini article in Skeptical Inquirer

The March/April 2012 issue of Skeptical Inquirer contains a 3-page article about Houdini by Massimo Polidoro (author of Final Seance: The Strange Friendship Between Houdini and Conan Doyle).

The article is called "The Day Houdini (Almost) Came Back From The Dead" and is about the infamous 1928-29 Houdini seances by Arthur Ford. Nothing new or revelatory, but it's a good article that recounts the history of the seances and controversy with some nice photos.

Thanks to Arthur Moses for the alert.

  1. Just as Hardeen said "This book is full of Lies" I say the same thing about this article that can be read here...

    This article is full of lies!
    Although hundreds of newspapers covered the story, this "writer" used only a scandal sheet that was later sued into extinction. They were accused of fraud and the person who wrote the graphic article changed her name and left town. i can easily list a dozen lies but the mere fact that this "writer" said that Arthur Ford spoke in Houdini's voice is enoght to close the case .. The spirit guide "Fletcher" always spoke through Ford.. Common knowledge.
