Twelve time travel stories from 1895 (short excerpt from “The Time Machine”), 1937,48,49,51,53,56,58,62. Favorites:

“The Sands Of Time” (1937) – P.Schuyler Miller – Old fashioned time travel adventure in the land of the dinosaurs. As an added twist a man gets caught up in a battle between two space rivals. One is (what a surprise!!!!) a beautiful babe.

“Brooklyn Project” (1948) – William Tenn – a fun send up of the “Nothing will change” time travel story.

“Time Heals” (1949 novelette) – Poul Anderson – It’s possible to keep people preserved until their diseases can be cured in the future. One man wakes up nine hundred years later and tries to adjust.

“Wrong Way Street” (1965) – Larry Niven – A man always wanted to travel back in time to save his younger brother from dieing in an accident he felt was his fault. He ended up in the space program and was assigned to the Moon to investigate an alien base. He decides to experiment with some of the equipment.

About vintage45

I'm a big fan of vintage books,movies,TV shows and music. I encourage everyone to patronize your local used book/record store and pick up some of the good stuff. My posts are capsule reviews of some favorites that you may want to investigate. The albums posted aren't really reviews but items from my collection that are still available. I try and point out highlights of each one and let the music speak for itself. Thanks to all for checking out the blog.

    Wilma Shore? I’ve never heard of her… How was the Masson story?

    I never heard of her either. I understand she only wrote a few SF stories. Judging by the one in this collection I’m in no hurry to find the others. This one is done in Q & A form.

    The Masson story has a good idea. Time flows at different rates in different latitudes. It’s on of those that has to be read a few times to get it. I don’t mind challenging stories but with so much out there to read I don’t have the time to keep re-reading something unless it’s so attention getting I don’t have a choice. This doesn’t fall into that category.
