Tagged: Author

(1947-    ) Indian engineer and author whose Near Future sf novel, Ultimate Revelations (1996), in which the threat of precipitate Climate Change, caused by a minor event in the Sun's usually stable emission of energy, is understood as a kind of fulfilled prophecy (or typology) of an ancient catastrophe, as described in the Bible and further mediated through the Qur'an. But the great Disaster proceeds unaffected by this knowledge. [JC]
