Tesla's Signal

Average: 3.7 (12 votes)
The Serbian-American scientist Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) is the developer of the alternating current electrical system which the world has used for over 100 years. Thus, he can rightly be called “the father of the industrial age.” And yet until recently, his name was virtually invisible. When I first learned his story, it seemed so incredible that I said “this is a science fiction story that practically writes itself!” Tesla's Signal is a work of fiction. While the first few chapters are loosely based on real events in Tesla's life, my portrayal of Tesla's thoughts, character and unusual... continue reading »

Nikola Tesla is synonymous with the “Man who invented the 21st century.” The two are the same person. Nevertheless, about himself he wrote only a short 60-page autobiography, written in his early sixties, which he named “My Inventions.” Although he lived another 25 years he never added to his early writings, believing that everything important in his life was over. All his major inventions had been completed by then. What else was there to write about, thought this great man, in his infinite humility? Fortunately, such grand yet humble men leave many disciples behind them to write about them... continue reading »

Steampunk Victoriana (or rather Edwardiana, since, although no proper date is given, Five Fists Of Science is almost certainly set in the 20th century) seems to hold an endless fascination for writers, and not least comics writers. We've had Alan Moore's The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen , Ian Edginton's Scarlet Traces , Grant Morrison's Sebastian O and Bryan Talbot's Luther Arkwright series, to name just a few off the top of my head. And now we have Matt Fraction's hugely enjoyable 'blockbuster' The Five Fists Of Science , which in a very similar vein purports to show us just what Nikola... continue reading »
