With the NCAA college basketball tournament about to kick off this month in the USA, Harper Collins Canada has been having their own “March Madness” with famous books pairing off against each other.  Right now they are down to their Sweet Sixteen and The Hobbit is still in contention.  The match-up this time is against another well-known fantasy book The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe.

Time for TORN fans to weigh in and enter the bracket.  So get voting!

    Too bad that no one has read TESLA – MAN OUT OF TIME, by Margaret Cheney. It still is not known how Tesla produced red fire in his hand, that he set on his clothes, etc., that didn’t burn anything – and then lit the room with light, although the source of the light was not evident. He provided poly-phase alternating current to light nearly every building on the planet; invented wireless transmission – the radio (Marconi does not have the patent); remote control, robotics, flourescent lighting, x-rays, radar, incipient computer circuits, the first atom smasher, the vertical take-off and landing airplane etc., etc. So why haven’t most Americans ever heard of him? Whatever author wins the Harper Collins contest – will that author’s books sell 200,000,000 copies, and generate $3 billion in film revenues (and counting) like Professor Tolkien’s books have? That is why Professor Tom Shippey refers to J.R.R. Tolkien as the “Author of the Century”. (That is not a printing error. I wrote Two hundred-million.)

    Tolkien’s books have sold 200,000,000 copies. As an author, J.R.R. Tolkien stands alone it that department, even as Nikola Tesla stands alone as a creator of numerous inventions, including the radio, radar, remote control, robotics, x-rays, the electric clock, the Tesla Coil, polyphase alternating current that is employed in most modern buildings, the vertical take-off and landing airplane, and probably a few others that I can’t remember. His creations, though well documented, were not always patented. (For example, the cyclotron is based on his early demonstration of atom smashing.)
