Summary :

Slow glass. This concept, evoked by two simple words, have intrigued the thousands who have read "Light of Other Days". Grafted into a story about the sad loss of a mostly unknown peddler of slow glass, Shaw explains this fictional substance in such a way as to make it seem plausible and within reach of the eventual science of men. What follows is a strangely sad tale about things lost, and things taken for granted that may yet be appreciated anew.
