The "Sleeping Prophet" was one of the most prolific psychics of modern times. Like pebbles tossed into the pool of human consciousness, his insights continue to ripple ever outward, touching and influencing increasing numbers of people worldwide.

Periodic updates by the author have expanded on these predictions, which continue to be fulfilled.
