really liked it
bookshelves: sci-fi
Read in July, 2011

I was lucky enough to meet Mr. Anderson while working on a petition drive in the early 80's. This book is a set of four stories from his series titled "Time Patrol" that ran in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, written between 1955 and 1959. for their era actually, they still read really well. Despite the fact that recent news has given us the kibosh to time travel (at least, perhaps, for travel to the past) such a notion was instrumental, of course, in the development of the genre. I would recommend it both as an exemplar of the problem (paradox and uncertainty) as it was conceived of by the writers of the day as well as a specimen of the theories recently discouraged by scientific reporting...
