About the Author
Bob Shaw (1931 - 1996)Bob Shaw was born in Belfast in 1931. After working in engineering, aircraft design and journalism he became a full time writer in 1975. Among his novels are Orbitsville, A Wreath of Stars, The Ragged Astronauts and his best-known work Other Days, Other Eyes, based on the Nebula Award-nominated 'Light of Other Days', the story that made his reputation. Although his SF novels and stories were for the most part serious, Shaw was well-known in fannish circles for his sense of humour, and his witty 'Serious Scientific Talks' were a favourite of attendees at Eastercons. Bob Shaw won two Hugos and three BSFA Awards. He died in 1996. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

A well-measured, enjoyable read.Reviewed in the United States on 27 October 2014
This is a fairly classic piece, that tells of a man overcoming the obstacles in his life, (after a serious accident), in a fairly realistic way. I particularly enjoyed the way Bob Shaw had written about the emotional problems the protagonist faced and how he worked his way though them. the tips on healthy eating and the like were greatly appreciated. Ok, it's a little abbreviated and slightly quicker than real life, but on the whole a good representation of getting better. Though most of us would get better and still be left with *some* PTSD. But life is an ongoing series of steps and if you are willing to forgive a little poetic license, (for the sake of the story), it's a great depiction of someone getting over their issues.
