    Science fiction writers often miss out on the credit they're due for correctly predicting the future just because they got one niggling little detail wrong No fan of hard SF should have been surprised by WikiLeaks it was obvious that sooner or later technology was going to make it impossible to keep secrets The only uestion was the

    At last year's Boring conference a concrete enthusiast demonstrated a block which did some very strange things with light and made me think of Bob Shaw's 'slow glass' a crystal which lets light through but only minutes or years after the event so that you're left with a literal window on the past This book features his original short stories on the theme included as 'sidelights' in a short novel about the inventor of slo

    My appreciation for Bob Shaw is growing Second book of his I've read that deal with optics blindness and vision Alban Garrod is a scientist that discovered some sort of glass that delays the passage of visible radiation through it A series of intertwined plots regarding the glass properties applied to criminal cases and the main character's struggle to free himself from the shackles of a marriage for convenien

    This is one of the best science fiction books I have ever read and I read a lot of science fiction I think about this book often The idea of slow glass and its impact on how the characters behave and react to it was very realistic 1010 would recommend to anyone who loves sci fi and introspection
