Shaw was born in 1924 so he was twenty when that first novel was published. I was unaware that he had written any fiction other than a few SF short stories in If and other early 1950 mags. Do you think Noreen Shaw could shed some light on this, Bill? I lost track of her when she moved back to Cleveland.
