The Rough Guide to Space Opera: Bob Shaw - Blue Tyson

Bob Shaw was a science fiction who produced 30 or so novels in different subgenres, some of which are certainly of interest, such as Orbitsville, a good old Big Dumb Object Dyson Sphere story. I haven't read these as yet though. Another example is the farce Who Goes Here? A man joins a space version of a French Foreign Legion type outfit, which is more of a Carry On type outfit, and things get sillier from there with time travel. He was also a writer of short stories. such as Light of Other Days.
