James,

It's a chemical thing. It can be found in this book:

As with all chemical magic, you're on your own with this one. I take no responsibility for any success, failure, or any other result you achieve. Think Ink is fairly innocuous but still. . .




Thanks for the info!

I recently unearthed a copy of The Shiels Effect with the big R on the front! Too funny!

Picture of The Shiels Effect. Can't seem to attach a pic that is small enough.

You might also like to know that there is a Tony Shiels video entitled "It's Alive!!!", which is bizarre in every sense of the word. (I picked mine up from Russell Hall in the UK, an associate of Martin Breese's, so it might be worth contacting Martin if you're interested.)

Unlike most of the videos available by magical performers, it's debatable whether you will learn anything whatsoever by studying Doc's tape, but it's probably the funniest and strangest thing I've ever seen. He spends a lot of time walking around bits of rural Ireland pointing at trees and bushes and saying "GREEEEEEN!" in his inimitable brogue.

And there's a nice bit with a wobbly rock, and some interesting photographs of sea monsters. It's not so much a lecture tape, more a voyage round Shiel's wonderfully strange mind. Well worth tracking down, but don't expect to understand any of it.

If anybody is interested, we have now the "It's Alive" video by Tony Shiels available as a download. http://www.lybrary.com/its-alive-the-wor......629.html It also includes a 5 minute interview with Martin Breese which is quite interesting.

I've just reprinted The Shiels Effect and it still comes with the DVD, An Evening With 'Doc' Shiels. Murphy's now has them.

Murphy's also have a new Shiels book, Jabberwocky, The Lost Writings of Tony 'Doc' Shiels, consisting of a series of thirteen early articles, some unseen Shiels memorabilia, and routines that originally appeared in an early Invocation magazine.
