The Strange Life of Nikola Tesla

The Strange Life of Nikola Tesla


The Strange Life of Nikola Tesla is the renamed “PART ONE THE LIFE OF TESLA (by Nikola Tesla)” of the book “THE WALL OF LIGHT NIKOLA TESLA AND THE VENUSIAN SPACE SHIP THE X-12” written by Arthur H. Matthews and published in 1973.The Strange Life of Nikola Tesla was published by Kolmogorov-Smirnov Publishing (with no identifying publish date), and subsequently became the first online version of Nikola Tesla’s Autobiography. It was transcribed by John Roland Penner in 1994 from a small typed booklet, photocopied and stapled. Although it is the first electronic version of Tesla’s autobiography available online it contains many significant errors carried over from the original photocopied text. Online Internet scrutiny has subsequently revealed numerous omissions and additions that did not appear in the original serial text published in Electrical Experimenter magazine. The original six-part series published in Electrical Experimenter Magazine in 1919 has been republished in book form as: My Inventions, The Autobiography of Nikola Tesla (Hart Brothers, Williston, 1983).
