Clarke of this, fans of both authors will definitely notice some striking similarities between Light of Other Days and other recent works by the two, specifically Baxters Manifold: Time and Clarkes The Trigger. The Light of Other Days follows a soulless tech billionaire (sort of an older, more crotchety Bill Gates), a soulful muckraking journalist, and the billionaires two (separated since birth) sons. Its 2035, and all four hold ringside seats at the birth of a new paradigm-destroying technology, a system of WormCams, harnessing the power of wormholes to see absolutely anyone or anything, anywhere, at any distance (even light years away).

As if that werent enough, the sons eventually figure out how to exploit a time-dilation effect, allowing them to use the holes to peer back in time.For Baxters part, the Light of Other Days develops another aspect of Manifolds notion that humanity might have to master the flow of time itself to avert a comparatively mundane disaster (yet another yawn-inducing big rock threatening to hit the earth)- Clarke, just as he did with Triggers anti-gun ray, speculates on how a revolutionary technology can change the world forever. --Paul Hughes
