A slender but by and large well chosen anthology of time travel stories. In a few instances, including the editor's own story, it was hard to understand why items had been selected for inclusion, but I was more than compensated by the imaginativeness displayed in some of the other choices. Probably about half the stories I'd read before, but so long ago that, with the exception of the Christopher Priest piece, it was like coming to them for the first time. Here are the stories I particularly enj

Trips in Time is an old anthology of time travel themed sci-fi stories, all written in the mid-20th century. I read it a long while ago and could only remember one of the stories. Luckily, that story was so off the wall a few key terms in Google and I was able to find the book again. (‘Manna’ was the story, BTW)

Divine Madness by Roger Zelazny
Grief (and brain chemistry) prove to, for once, be stronger than time. Hurray for happy endings! (or beginnings, in this case)

Manna by Peter Phillips

This is a review-in-progress and will be updated as I read the various stories. I am going to start at the very beginning with the first story.

I am not a big fan of time machines and time travelling, but I still look forward to seeing where this anthology will take me. The editor promises the reader that these stories will be very different from your average time machine stories.

An Infinite Summer (22 pages, by Christopher Priest) is, as the editor promised, a very different time travelling st

This book contains 9 time travel short stories written by some leading science fiction authors including Poul Anderson and A.E. van Vogt. Each story is very different from the others. Some of the stories have a science fiction feel to them while others are more like fantasy. These time traveling adventures are thought provoking and very imaginative. It is this imaginative part found in these stories that I like best, for I would never have thought of many of the ideas behind these stories!
