Uriah Fuller is a pen name that Martin Gardner (1914-2010), a notable American skeptic, recreational mathematician, author, and amateur magician, used for two booklets he wrote showing how purported psychics such as Uri Geller (born 1946) do their "seemingly impossible paranormal feats" such as bending spoons and apparently reading minds. The booklets are Confessions of a Psychic: The Secret Notebooks of Uriah Fuller (1975) and Further Confessions of a Psychic: The Secret Notebooks of Uriah Fuller (1980), both published by Karl Fulves of Teaneck, New Jersey.[1]
