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.

Time travel must be the most speculative area of the science fiction genre. With space travel, robotics, genetics, artificial intelligence and other areas, we have scientific and technological achievements to build on. Mars may not be Barsoom, but we have sent robots there and we have seen and explored the land. Time travel is as much a scientific and technological fantasy today as it has ever been. We are not even clear on what time is or how it 'works'. This means there is much more scope for science fiction to push boundaries and to explore the outer reaches of our philosophical relationship with time.

This collection reveals something interesting. With few exceptions, this is the most downbeat perspective on time travel imaginable. Protagonists out to make things better invariably make them worse; no one is happy; everyone regrets getting involved; other times are always worse than the here and now; there is no purpose behind time travel. Space travel generally invokes big themes with noble purpose (even if the specifics are grubby and human). Here, time travel is serving no noble objective; the experimenters are often petty and self-serving, using time travel to win the girl or get a promotion or, worst of all, to do nothing of value to anyone at all. Are we writing pessimistic time travel fiction in order to mask our disappointment that we are not able to do it?

The authors are varied, the stories generally well-written and the selection is from the more obscure and curious end of the genre. ( )

You come into a collection like this expecting that it will be a bit of a mixed bag but hoping that a heretofore unfamiliar author might capture your fancy. In that light editor Mike Ashley deserves credit for going beyond the obvious--fifteen of these authors were new to me as were twenty-two of the twenty-five stories in this far ranging collection.

I thought the first section of the collection was fairly underwhelming (with "Walk to the Full Moon" being my favorite story from the first part of the book), but things definitely improved in the second half of the book. I absolutely loved Ellen Klages not-for-Sad-Puppies-feminist-lesbian-time-traveler-in-1950's-Berkeley story "Time Gypsy", and found the contributions of David Masson, Mike Strahan, Molly Brown, Paul Levinson, Michael Swanwick, and Ian Watson to all be outstanding.
