Nikolai Alexandrov (1947–1980), the protagonist of this tale, is a New Yorker of questionable ‘Russian’ ancestry, who recalls his past lives as Nikola Tesla and as an Atlantean. Following the traumatic death of his parents, he is adopted and raised by a mysterious couple who claim to be his aunt and uncle. After doing breakthrough work in Physics and Philosophy, Nikolai finds himself caught up in a web of intrigue that leads him to a career as a psychic spy tracking UFOs for U.S. Naval Intelligence and to the discovery of Neo-Fascist plans to establish a Fourth Reich. This unwelcome realization comes after a flirtation with the Weather Underground, and a tortured romantic relationship with a young woman whose suicide becomes a harbinger of his own untimely demise. This is not your typically cerebral science fiction novel but a horror story shot through with lurid sex and ultra-violence. Consider yourself forewarned.
