Then things start to go wrong--and “mad scientist” Nikola himself is blamed. He and his brilliant colleague Clara must go on the run from alien captors and human authorities alike. They seek a refuge where they can develop their futuristic defenses against the “Martians”. At the same time, Nikola must learn to tap into the cosmic forces and face his own demons: his phobia of germs, touching and love.
Their only allies are the enlightened ones, on Earth and on a far-away world of disembodied energy beings.
Eventually Nikola and Clara must return to a devastated New York City, where they will face the alien invaders in the final battle for the fate of humanity.
A classic-style SF novel that blends real history with fantastic gizmos, far-out space wonder, and hair-raising adventure.
From the Author:
I'm a lifelong SF reader and fan, and also an amateur science student. Yet I had never heard of Nikola Tesla until 2013, when a friend asked me to do a video for his Tesla club. So I had to get informed. And when I read Tesla's biography, I realized that "this is a science fiction story that practically writes itself."
