I find this large volume of stories (that I am reading parts on audio) more and more disappointing

I was really quite exciting to start it and the part 1 was pretty great but I found myself losing interest in a lot of the stories in this one.

Sadly I'll be in no rush to start part 4 and finish the collection.

Good mix of old and new stories.

“The Clock That Went Backwards” by Edward Page Mitchell - very good for it's age!
“Yesterday Was Monday” by Theodore Sturgeon good
“Is There Anybody There?” by Kim Newman - quite good
“Fish Night” by Joe Lansdale - ok
“The Lost Pilgrim” by Gene Wolfe the Greek myth of the Argonauts - a bit long-winded but OK
“Palindromic” by Peter Crowther - good
“Augusta Prima” by Karin Tidbeck - dull
“Life Trap” by Barrington J Bayley - dull - didn't finish
“The Lost Continent” by Greg

As always with a compilation, some entries are stronger than others. I found this one to be very engaging and don't remember a bad story.

There were a few good ones. I'll try to add individual ratings later.
Most were horror, some were related to time, but not really time travel.

As I said with the other volumes in this series, a mixed bag of short stories meaning that some short stories were better than others. Increasingly, though, I found these stories unsatisfactory. Many of them didn't really seem to get anywhere. Disappointing.

A couple of interesting stories, but the rest are unbearably boring. Some of them are just tangentially related to time-travel. I borrowed the audio version of this book from the library, so no loss in any case. I do recommend the second and third stories.
