I was looking for information about Tony Shiels over the net and found out that
one of the most famous Nessie photos of recent years were taken in 21 May 1977 by him!
What a great way to get publicity.

Doc's book on how to be a Psychic Superstar has an entire chapter devoted to Nessie and other crptozoological phenomena. It's really worth having in your library if you can find one.
Also, on his video"It's Alive" he discusses the Nessie photo's. There is also an article in a back issue of "Strange" magazine detaling the hoax...or was it. It's too bad the ol' Doc is no longer in the magic community...we could sure use him.He's one of my favorite people.

Best thoughts,
John Smetana

Doc Shiels has been living in Ireland for the past number of years. Retired from performing he spends his time painting.

Bit like Chan Canasta.

Nessie hunting is insane. I head up to Inverness to perform a few times a year and once did a wee bit at Loch Ness. There were about twenty guys there who had been poised with video cameras for 3 WEEKS!!

They called it dedication. Obsession more like.

Not that I want to start a Nessie debate, but most of the "footage" could easily be a decent sized fish or an otter.

Nessie not real?

Next you'll be telling me that Bigfoot doesn't exist...

Yes Tony Shiels was absolutely fantastic. I loved some of his ideas with respect to presenting hoaxes as real miracles.

His book "Entertaining with ESP" was the book that got me started in mentalism - I still use the rope tie he teaches in it!

Yes..... the Doc is alive and well. Living in County Clare on the West coast of Ireland where he spends his days painting. He is as interesting as ever and delivered a wonderful lecture to the Cork-Kerry Magicians last year. Besides paimting he has been known to drink a pint or two of "the black stuff". We love him.
