[Won the book in a Goodreads First Reads contest:]

Though the premise seems stretched in a few stories (either the love or the time is shortchanged in two or three of the stories), the short stories are all well written and very exciting. For many, real time seems paused as the story unfolds and it is only with disbelief that I notice the clock still moving when I looked up from the pages.

This is one of those few SF books where the hard sf (sometimes glossed over, sometimes a little

I won this on a Frst Reads giveaway and was really intrigued by the premise. It is a collection of short stories, each based on a specific idea about time: time travel, expansion of time, time that folds in upon itself, etc. The time concept is then put into use for a story about love, whether romantic, paternal or fraternal. So yes, I have to admit I was definitely more intrigued by the science aspect...

It started off really well with the first story: what happens if time stops for

(My name was drawn to receive this book from First Reads.)

Time, emiT, and Time Again was stimulating to read. The book contains essays about time and sci-fi stories in which something about time is central to plot. Both "Second Thoughts" (the first story in the book) and "Buying Time" (the last story) are thoughtful, well-written short stories that tell us that if "A" were true about time, then "B" could happen in ordinary lives.

Since I have not known anyone whose concepts about time are

While I thought that the stories in this book had a lot of potential, they all missed the mark somehow. The first and last stories, Second Thoughts and Buying Time, were probably my favorite of all. The romance distracted me from the confusion I felt in most of the stories. There was simply too much going on for me to fully grasp what was going on. More concise writing may have made the complex story lines a little easier to understand. It wasn't always easy to catch an important aspect (like wh ...more

Just got my giveaway copy today! Looks good!
This book has exceeded my expectations! Mr. McClanahan is very imaginative. The stories are so original and creative and the topics are diverse too.
I especially liked Oracular Offspring. The blurb on the cover says it all. Science fiction for people with a heart.
Try it-you'll like it!

I won this book as a first read and I was enjoying it. My dog had other ideas about what should be done with the book though and I didn't get to finish reading it. :-( As with all short stories there were some that I read that I enjoyed more then others, but I didn't dislike any of them that I read. I'm sad that I didn't get to finish reading it.

3.5 stars really. Fascinating vignettes on time manipulation and love. The stories share a sense of eeriness which works better in some than in others, once or twice they veer from eerie to uncomfortable without quite reaching creepy (which I would have preferred).

Teel is happily married to an English teacher and they live together in Phoenix, AZ with a grumpy old cat, a skittish young cat, and thousands of books, both read and to-be-read. Virtual Danger is Teel’s nineteenth book, and there are plenty more trying to work their way into this world through the aperture of Teel's imagination, hoping to be found and loved by readers like you. Interestingly, none of t ...more
