Shiels, Tony (‘‘Doc’’)
Well-known contemporary magician who presents conjuring
and mentalism in a setting of ‘‘psychic power.’’ In his publicity
to fellow stage magicians, Shiels gives instructions on how
‘‘to bend metal in the Geller style . . . to teleport and levitate
. . . to become a successful witch . . . to raise ghosts and poltergeists,
etc.’’ However, Shiels also acknowledges the reality of
PK and ESP as well as the effects produced by conjuring and
Shiels claims to have taken several photographs of the Loch
Ness monster but most researchers have dismissed them as a
hoax attempt. He has also been accused as the hoaxer behind
some photos of fairies and Morgawr the Cornish sea serpent.
