The Wizard of West Orange is the last story in The Secret History of Science Fiction. The link is to a paysite, there are no legit free ones that I can find. It's a good closing--nice plotting, a good speculative base in an unusual science space. The Wizard is Thomas Edison, and we get a very interesting view of his New York labs. Lots of idealism, competition and secrecy. The key is the haptograph--a device meant to simulate any bodily sensation. It's kind of a skunk work, monitored by Edison but not closely. It is told as a series of diary entries by the librarian, who gets involved with the experiments.
Very interesting life lessons here on what does and does not get pursued in a working science lab. What would the world be like if a haptograph existed? We may find out soon. 3 stars, go read it.
