That Time Houdini Threatened to Shoot All the Psychics

Where we read about the letter to the editor that Houdini helped write that asked if putting a bullet in a ghost at a seance would be a crime if a dead body fell to the floor… and how, reportedly, for a year after the letter was published the professional spiritualists stopped “materializing”  spirits and stuck to pulling flowers out of their ghost-holes.

    Apparently Houdini and Arthur Conan Doyle were friends. But then had a falling out over ACD’s support of spiritualism. Oh, and probably fairies. Weird.
