Uriah Fuller is a pen name assumed by Martin Gardner (1914-2010) — a noted American skeptic, recreational mathematician, author, and amateur magician — for two booklets he wrote showing how purported psychics — such as Uri Geller (born 1946) — do their "seemingly impossible paranormal feats" (mentally bending spoons, "reading minds", etc.).

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]
