SF novel, originally published in 1933, this new edition adds a new six page preface by the author. From the library of sf author John Clute, with his signature on the front free endpaper.
''his sf is of scattered interest. The Near Future title novella of Triple Fugue (coll 1924) posits a 1948 world in which Trotsky is President of Russia and lifespans have been trebled for the rich. The Man Who Lost Himself (1929) tells the complex psychological life-story of a man from his youth to his death sometime after the middle of the twentieth century. MIRACLE ON SINAI 1933), a discussion novel like several of H G Wells's from this period, is set in a luxury hotel near Mount Sinai and on the Mount itself, where a glowing cloud deposits new Tablets of the Law, which are variously interpreted; in the final chapter a cataclysmic war begins'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd edition).
