Cars, video tapes and time travel technology. What do they have in common?
I’m living the lucky narrow escape from an alternative outcome my life could have taken. This alternate reality family doesn’t exist – and won’t exist – because I already exist in it!
Mark J. Rose writes Journeyman drawing on his own experience as an equestrian and a pharmacologist. There’s little time travel but the writing is superb!
I wake up in the dark early hours of the morning, and go to bed when it’s still daylight outside. How does daylight saving time give me more daylight?
Ultimate daylight saving time: bears have the right idea about maximising their sunlight time by hibernating through the dark winter months and staying awake for the sunshine! The rest of us are being duped…
Traveler’s HOT L Volume 2 has a solid time travel mechanism (complete with a full description) and short stories of its application and consequences when things go wrong. It’s brilliantly written too!
Despite the recent explosion of time travel stories, time dilation remains an untapped treasure trove. In this guest post from Roy Huff we learn something about time dilation as a trope.
Which is easiest – dropping Matt Miller in Colonial America or dropping a package containing the novels through my letter box?
An Age by Brian Aldiss takes an age to get to the point, and by the time it’s been reached it’s too late.
“Memoirs of a Time Traveler” by Doug Molitor is a novel of 3 halves. I love the writing style and the humour, and the time travel aspect is well thought out!
The “River of Time” is a commonly used model of the passage of time where time flows in one direction. But in which direction?
My alarm clock has marked the passage of time for me but its time is finally up. Alarm bells have been ringing and alerting me of its imminent demise with limp hands, no glow and yes – a dead alarm feature. Farewell, my ex-trusty alarm clock. May you snooze in peace…
Does the psychology of showing us a watch with a smiley face on it really help the sale?
An easy read for a full length time travel novel from the author who brought us “All You Zombies” and “By His Bootstraps”. Was walking through this door worth it?
Tomorrow my little 5 year old girl won’t exist any more yet I’m certain she’s looking forward to the event which takes her away from me…
The differentiation between “later”, “now ” and “never” is not as clear as we might think, but a trip into London with my daughters helped me to unravel it!
When we fall back an hour in winter time we’re supposed to gain an hour. In my recent experience I’m not sure if I gained an hour – or lost many!
Watching Arrival reminded me of The Story of Your Life (Ted Chiang) which I read whilst Arrival was being made. Then I read it again. There’s something a little circular going on…
Patterns on Pages: Secrets of the Sequenced Symbols is a beautifully written full length novel following in the HOT L series by CR Downing with time travel integrated throughout.
“A Single Life” is a short animation where time is bi-directional on a single time-line. “You might think your life is never ending” – but only for as long as the duration of your life.
In this author interview we find out more about Howard Loring – creator of Epic Fables and Tales of Elastic Limits.
Piercing the Elastic Limit: An Epic Fable (Howard Loring) is effectively a series of stories with a common thread and some common characters running through them. This novel is loaded with ideas to get the time travel enthusiast thinking!
Patricia’s powerful writing in “Time Split – Briggs” brings us multiple time lines thanks to a time machine / teleporter backed up with experimental development from the first novel (“Time Split”). Be prepared for some blood and gore with the evil Briggs!
“Dead Time” and “Lost Time” are different flavours to the dish that is served in Book 1, “Crossing in Time”. Beautifully written with parallel worlds, time travel and Deb’s usual dose of good quality humour!
“Two Worlds Collided” by Karen Michelle Nutt probably doesn’t set out to be a time travel novel in itself, but rather a quirky romance novel with time travel added to make it interesting!
I was heavily impressed – and disappointed – with “The Grandfather Paradox” by Steven Burgauer. It has the makings of an absolutely cracking scifi novel, but somehow loses itself along the way.
This guest post from author Jennifer Macaire (“Time for Alexander” series) shares with us her adventures in Mantes la Jolie…on July 11, 1792!
Scott Eric Barrett has published more than fifty articles for various newspapers, history magazines, and educational publications -and the author of time travel novel “The Guttersnipes”. how did he manage it?
Thanksgiving Eve fails as a time travel novel but other aspects of this novel make it a compelling tale of how a father tries to improve relations with his family.
The Guttersnipes by Scott Eric Barrett is a fun and fast-paced read which has a time travel component that involves a biological and technological component.
Reverse archaeology where we’ve dug up a piece of ceramic from the Portuguese future?
Beyond the Elastic Limit (Howard Loring) is fantastic time travel nuts and bolts stuff with a time travel methodology built around an interesting model of time!
Spring seems to be a forgotten season. It’s more of a stepping stone to summer; a time of change. Is that why we turn to summer time in Spring?
Eternalism is where all moments in time co-exist. Can dreaming give us a clue as to how we can train our brain to access the past or future as well as experience the present?
There are many models of time and time travel. In this guest post, Gregory Taylor goes through the principles of some of them and explains how they deal with free will and fate.
Mikey Campling’s “Trespass” has a “Darkeningstone” which affects people across the ages. The novel is very well written and builds layers of intrigue regarding the stone and its properties, but ultimately I couldn’t tell where the novel was heading.
