I joined the message boards to ask a question.
In this episode, Randi relates the story of the Martin Gardner's long lost book from his father that he finds decades later in a book store. This story bears a striking resemblance to a story I heard on "Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction." (A guilty pleasure of mine, but I can't help it, I love Jonathan Frakes!) I cannot remember if the story turned out to be fact or fiction... but I think it claimed to be fact.
Has anyone else seen this episode? Does anyone know if it was based on Gardner's story? It would be really neat to verify.
