Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
'Two titans of hard SF team up for a story of grand scientific and philosophical scope . . . in this potent story'
Publishers Weekly

The Light of Other Days tells of a time, not so far in the future, when the walls of time and distance have suddenly turned to glass.

Hiram Patterson, head of the giant media corporation OurWorld, launches the greatest communications revolution in history. With OurWorld’s development of wormhole technology, any point in space can be connected to any other, faster than the speed of light. Realtime television coverage is here: earthquakes and wars, murders and disasters can be watched, exactly as they occur, anywhere on the planet.

Then WormCams are made to work across time as well as space. Humanity encounters itself in the light of other days. We witness the life of Jesus, go to the premiere of Hamlet, solve the enigmas that have baffled generations. Blood spilled centuries ago flows vividly once more - and no personal treachery or shame can be concealed.

But when the world and everything in it becomes as transparent as glass and there are no more secrets, people find new ways to gain vengeance and commit crime, and Hiram Patterson finds new ways to pursue his deadly schemes.

'A sweeping, mind-boggling read!'

'Arthur Clarke is one of the true geniuses of our time'
Ray Bradbury

'Tom Clancy meets Tom Wolfe'
Kirkus Reviews on Stephen Baxter
