9781472100252: The Mammoth Book of Time Travel

This thought-provoking collection not only takes us into the past and the future, but also explores what might happen if we attempt to manipulate time to our own advantage. These stories show what happen once you start to meddle with time and the paradoxes that might arise. It also raises questions about whether we understand time, and how we perceive it. Once we move outside the present day, can we ever return or do we move into an alternate world? What happens if our meddling with Nature leads to time flowing backwards, or slowing down or stopping all together? Or if we get trapped in a constant loop from which we can never escape. Is the past and future immutable or will we ever be able to escape the inevitable? These are just some of the questions that are raised in these challenging, exciting and sometimes amusing stories by Kage Baker, Simon Clark, Fritz Leiber, Christopher Priest, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Robert Silverberg, Michael Swanwick, John Varley and many others.

About the Author:

Mike Ashley is a leading authority on science fiction, fantasy, crime and weird fiction. He has written or edited over 90 books, including The Mammoth Book of King Arthur, The Mammoth Book of Extreme SF, The Mammoth Encycopedia of Crime Fiction and Starlight Man, the biography of Algernon Blackwood, which, in total, have sold over a million copies worldwide. He lives in Chatham, Kent with his wife, three cats and over 30,000 books.

From Booklist:

This anthology tries to include every implication of time travel, and does a surprisingly good job at it, moving from the exploratory to the possibilities of awful consequences of altering the flow of time. It opens with Gregory Benford’s slight, cautionary “Caveat Time Traveler” and closes with Kristine Kathryrn Rusch’s “Red Letter Day,” about the dangers of knowing the future and the complicated safeguards that might be used to prevent terrible consequences. Liz Williams provides a cruise ship lost in time, and its rather alarming journey. David J. Lake’s “The Truth about Weena” offers up an interpretation of possibilities set forth in H. G. Wells’ The Time Machine. Ellen Klages’ “Time Gypsy” remains a genuinely delightful short scientific romance. Kage Baker’s epic Company universe makes an appearance, with the Company handling a rather unfortunate situation involving one of its operatives. There are a few thematic arcs, all outlined in the brief editorial introductions to each story. Overall, the anthology is quite entertaining, and it maintains a pleasing balance between the more familiar tropes of time travel and imaginative alternatives. --Regina Schroeder
