Novel Based on Nikola Tesla

UVM graduate, Samantha Hunt, has become an expert on Nikola Tesla.
She has written The Invention of Everything Else, a novel based on the life of the 'mad genius.'

Seven Days had a piece on her visit to the Flying Pig Bookstore in Shelburne.

Hunt was mentioned in a recent New Yorker magazine article about the Hotel New Yorker, where Tesla spent the last years of his long life.

I didn't get to Hunt's talk, but I did get to pick up a copy of her book later.

Public Radio's Studio 360 did a show on Tesla. There is a segment with Samantha Hunt reading from her book.

There is much interesting stuff at the Studio 360 page. For instance, Tesla invented radio well before Marconi built one that worked.

MetaFilter also has links to Tesla information.

Here is a transcription of a booklet and autobiography.
