For those who are new to LCL, I would like to direct you to Sesh Heri's amazing trilogy.
Wonder of the Worlds is the first book and it has received many positive reviews since its release in early 2006. It was featured at the International Tesla Conference in Zurich and was the best selling book at the 2006 AUP 'Ancient Science & Modern Secrets Conference' where the author was the most popular speaker. The story follows Nikola Tesla, Mark Twain and a young Harry Houdini on a journey to Mars in 1893 to retrieve a stolen synthetic crystal which the emperor of the Red Planet intends to use in his conquest of Earth. This is a science fiction fantasy adventure certain to entertain steampunk fans as well...
Metamorphosis is the darker second act.
It is 1915 and Houdini has become the famous escape artist we all know today. Together with Jack London, a young naval officer named Chester Nimitz, and Nikola Tesla, Houdini goes up against Martian agents on Earth who are being manipulated by a terrible and powerful foe called the NYMZA, tyrannical beings from another dimension. Romance springs up between Houdini and Charmian London in this one, as it did in real life. Together, Houdini and Charmian encounter the devastating visions of a future dominated by the mysterious time-bending, planet-destroying device known as 'The Bell'...
The Lost Pleiad brings the trilogy to a wondrous and thrilling climax as Nikola Tesla returns center stage in the search for Amelia Earhart whose secret mission was far more astounding than anyone would ever imagine.
Tesla and Marconi bring their incredible technology into the search to face off against the Martians one last time as the Nazis begin to wreak havoc in the world...
