Gerrold had (the book was published in 1973) some unique ideas about time travel that I think make reading this book worthwhile for any sci-fi fan.

I am not a reader of The Bloggess, and none the less I thoroughly enjoyed this book. In many places it is laugh out loud funny. If you enjoy memoirs, this will likely be one you will enjoy.
