About the Author

Born in 1958 in upstate New York, the seventh of nine boys, Dr. Gelber attended college at Johns Hopkins University and medical school at the University of Rochester School of Medicine, graduating in 1984. He started his training in general and vascular surgery at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, Texas and finished in 1989 at Nassau County Medical Center on Long Island in New York.

As a partner in Coastal Surgical Group he has practiced in the Southeast Houston area for more than 20 years. He served as Chairman of the Department of Surgery and as President of the Medical Staff at Bayshore Medical Center in Pasadena Texas and was named one of America’s Top Docs for 2008 by physician rating service Castle Connolly.

When asked if his career path has been worth it, Dr. David Gelber – a General and Vascular Surgeon practicing in Southeast Harris County in Texas since 1990 – leaves little doubt.

“I’ve spent years attending to the drunks who couldn’t settle their differences without knives or guns, children with an appendix that decided to burst at 2:00 a.m., kindly old la¬dies who’ve said, ‘I’m done with those old breasts, just get rid of them,’ and so on. The rewards are tremendous,” says Dr. Gelber.

“Nearly every week I can look back and say that I saved somebody’s life - stopped their bleeding, removed their cancer, restored their ability to walk without pain or disability. This has given me great satisfaction.”

Dr. Gelber is the author of two science fiction novels, "Future Hope, ITP Book One" and "Joshua and Aaron, ITP Book Two", and a recently published book about surgery, "Behind the Mask: The Mystique of Surgery and the Surgeons Who Perform Them".
He lives in Houston, Texas with Laura, his wife of 25 years, three teenaged children, and five dogs.

A fascinating look at human nature, Last Light shows that even if humanity has everything it could ever need or want it's never enough. People will reject the promise of a perfect future, thinking that an imperfect present is better. the story will keep you turning the page, make you laugh at times and, probably, make you cry. Well worth 99 cents.

This book was not what I thought it was going to be. I was pleasantly surprised. Really makes you think.
