Anne Rice FAQ Whoo, tough one here. This is a question, as you can imagine, that leads into some dangerous waters. Let's start with age: While there is nothing in the text which specifically states Armand's age when Marius saves him we do know that he's forever trapped in the body of a 17 year old. Text in TVA suggests that Marius knew Armand for 2 years before turning him, which would place him at age 15 when the two of them first met. It is canon that the two of them were lovers when Armand was still mortal. So it can now be said that at the very least Marius took an at least 15 year old Armand for his lover. Does this make him a pedophile? What's the verdict, then? I'll let her words speak for themselves (this was taken from the message on her phone line, the number of which was listed earlier): "Good morning everybody. As an update to this, it's uncertain whether Lestat's mentions in Pandora and TVA are indications that Lestat's come back, if she'll do another book with him or anything like that.

Why Nikola Tesla was the greatest geek who ever lived Additional notes from the author: If you want to learn more about Tesla, I highly recommend reading Tesla: Man Out of Time Also, this Badass of the week by Ben Thompson is what originally inspired me to write a comic about Tesla. Ben's also got a book out which is packed full of awesome. There's an old movie from the 80s on Netflix Instant Queue right now about Tesla: The Secret of Nikola Tesla. It's corny and full of bad acting, but it paints a fairly accurate depiction of his life. The drunk history of Tesla is quite awesome, too.
