Time and Tomorrow (1979) by John D. MacDonald.

"Old school, but a nice change."

This 1979 anthology gathers three of suspense writer MacDonald's (creator of Travis McGee) science fiction novels: "Wine of the Dreamers" (1951), noted for its idea of "long-distance telepathy" (from lightyears away, to boot); "Ballroom of the Skies" (1952); and "The Girl, The Gold Watch, & Everything" (1962).

I got this book with some trepidation as John D. MacDonald is known more as a mystery than as a science fiction writer. I was pleasantly surprised. The story "The Girl, the Gold Watch and Everything", a time-travel bit, was very moving--and I usually don't like time travel stories. MacDonald just happens to be a good writer.

Of the three novels said to inhabit this volume, I have read two, _Ballroom of the Skies_ and _Wine of the Dreamers_ - but that was a long time ago and if I recall, the stories bear rereading - the third novel, The Girl, The Gold Watch and Everything_ is one I had not heard of until recently - it will be the new novel for me in this set.

Great departure from the Travis McGee series...I always try to find a MacDonald book I haven't read when I'm stuck for something to read. These three stories didn't disappoint.
