Shaw joined a group of science fiction writers known as the Futurians during the early 1940s. From 1948 through the early 1950s, he wrote short fiction before becoming an editor for the magazines If and later Infinity Science Fiction. He published Harlan Ellison's first magazine story "Glowworm" (1955) in Infinity Science Fiction, after Ellison's first sale to EC Comics.
From 1954 to 1955 Shaw edited Rodding and Re-Styling, an automotive sports magazine.
After those magazines terminated during 1958, Shaw edited monster movie magazines, automotive magazines and other material until 1963, when he began editing for Irwin Stein's company Lancer Books. He continued working as an editor until 1975, when he began work mainly as a literary agent. He received a Special Hugo Award during 1984 for lifetime achievement as an editor.
