What would happen if time, the fragile thread that both leads and binds us, could be unwound as simply as untying a knot? Would we go back, charging through our own history, changing and tweaking, plucking at that fragile thread until time itself unraveled all around us? Would we create countless universes through which we could live our fantasies—or would we become our ow ...more

Recommended to Jenny Zimmerman by: Clean Teen Publishing
WOW....This book is phenomenal!!! I read half of it in one sitting and the other half in another sitting. This is a magnificent bunch of writers by themselves, but then put them together for an Anthology and you have a suspenseful, blow your mind, edge of your seat of Twisted and unforeseen plots in each and every story. I really can't say that I have a favorite one, but the one that got me the most was It's the Little Things by Jon Messenger that got me. I was shocked and totally floored by the ...more

An amazing anthology with a plethora of takes on the whole time travel idea. These stories will take you from the dawn of time to way in the future and wishing YOU could time travel so you can enjoy the experience all over again.

There is literally something in this book for everyone so whether you have read all of the authors before or they are all new to you I would be you can find a favorite.

An easy 5 stars from me! V""V

My Thoughts:

Since I already shared my thoughts via Instagram on this read, I'll keep this short. Generally speaking, I'm not a short story or anthology kind of person. In all honesty, I usually find them to be a waste of my time. If I'm going to sit down and take the time to actually read a story, I want more from it. I want a full story. That's just me. So when Clean Teen/Crimson Tree Publishing released this anthol

Shelves: sci-fi
I was expecting some sci-fi short stories about time travel but discovered these were actually more like teasers for novels written by the authors. I was a bit disappointed by this as none of the stories had any resolution and none were enticing enough for me to investigate the authors' books any further. ...more

Twists in Time is an anthology of time travel stories. I usually don't read anthologies or time travel for that matter, but I found these stories interesting and engaging. These authors are very creative in their story telling. The writing is superb and the stories are powerful. I was pleasantly surprised with this anthology. I won Twists in Time in a blog giveaway, and all opinions are my own. ...more

Only one of the stories was awful, and two were actually amazing. I loved the ones by Julie Wetzel and Holly Kelly the best. The rest were very good.

What an interesting collection of short stories. Very imaginative ideas from all authors.
Kathy-Lynn Cross: I have read her other book, So Shall I Reap, and find her to be an exceptional writer. She knows how to create a story and create it well. Within a Grain of Sand was a beautiful supernatural outtake to time. Her ideas of creating a world that pulls you right in makes you feel as if what she writes is reality; her way with words also helps make it that much more believable. I hope she can co

This is a collection of short stories that all have time travel in common. There is something for everyone here, and although the stories are short, they are full of characters, situations and worlds that will ring true. This is incredibly hard to do in such a small amount of space, but somehow, every single author manages to do this, within this collection.

This contains the first "book" or introduction to a number of books, and if you enjoy the intro then you can click the links in the book to

Some of the stories were good. Most were so-so. I'm not a big time travel fan unless it is done really well. ...more

A great series of short stories about time travel. Each author has a unique take on the many twists, turns, and potential catastrophes awaiting those who mess with time. I especially enjoyed the stories by Kelly Risser, Julie Wetzel, and Holly Kelly. Well done!
