The Gates of Chance

by Van Tassel Sutphen

The fantastic experiences of two young men of Bohemian tendencies who prowl about New York. Thorp, son of a rich father, brought up in luxury and idleness, does not know what to turn his hand to when compelled to either work or be content with a meagre income. Indiman, an energetic fellow with a tendency towards mysticism, espionage, and a golf handicap of 18, is his un-expected companion, and together they discover a club to which the only qualification for membership is absolute failure.
