A science fiction novel by finance trader William Delbert Gann (1878-1955) who professed using astrology and other occult methods in his market forecasting and investing. In the foreword to this book he alludes to hidden meanings behind the fictional story, saying it "contains a valuable secret, clothed in veiled language. Some will find it the first time they read it, others will see it in the second reading, but the greatest number will find the hidden secret when they read it the third time." He also promises that it will make the reader crave reading the Bible, "the greatest book ever written." A second world war, spanning from 1930-1932, occurs in this novel, to be decisively won by the protagonist's remarkable, supernaturally-inspired inventions. Item #140945088
