As we approach the end of the year, we get another behemoth collection from the Vandermeers and Head of Zeus After 2011 s The Weird, which deservedly won awards, and last year s Zombies in 2013 we get The Time Traveller s Almanac Or at least we do here in the UK US readers will have to travel a little further in time until March 2014 for their copies There are many collections of time travel stories out there This one is claimed to be the biggest, and, as I m sure many reviews will say, this is [...]

  4. OKyou re not going to believe this.It was only my second outing but I skipped down to the basement and flipped the relevant gears into action, sending the Time Machine, with myself on board, back in time just a couple of years.The Vandermeers were discussing the possible topics for their next anthology, when I landed right smack bang in the middle of their dining table, cutlery and food flying everywhere.Of course it had the desired effect that I was seeking it totally disrupted their current th [...]


  5. It was really hit and miss on the stories that grabbed my attention However that is true of all anthologies as they are the results of a single persons interpretation of what is good Still a reasonable value for the price


  6. Stories Death Ship Matheson 3 stars two for the story, one for the fact that it is Richard MathesonRipples in the Dirac Sea Landis 5 stars Wow, this was great.Needle in a Timestack Silverberg 3 stars Anticlimactic Started off cool.Another Story Le Guin 1 star Too complicated and boring I enjoy other Le Guin but could not get into this.Hwang s Billion Brilliant Daughters Sola Kim 4 stars Not sure exactly about the whys of this one, but it was still pretty great.


  7. oh this started so well and then lost me In the first two sections I was completely hooked All the stories gripped me but then in the remainder I found fewer and fewer that caught my imagination So the ones I liked were the experiments and investigators, the paradoxes and communicators didn t grab me Maybe this is my sci fi heritage just showing itself The later sections seemed largely to feature newer works whereas the early pieces were 60s and 70s items the era of my introduction to time trav [...]


  8. The biggest and best collection of short stories about time travel ever While not every single one of them was a winner, there were enough good ones, and some downright excellent ones, to make this a worthy read There is even a playlist of songs recorded over the years about time travel in the middle of the book Some day I will find the time to listen to all of them.


  9. A n con sus altos y bajos las historias logran tener un libro bien macizo Si les gusta la ciencia ficci n es una cosas beshisima El tratado acerca de la m sica y los viajes en el tiempo me pareci PRECIOSO.


  10. collection of short stories on this theme of time travel Some are very clever and interesting others, less so Also, since the stories come from various time periods, some feel modern, others are quite dated.


  11. As with all anthologies featuring multiple authors, the quality of this book was highly variable There were some stories I couldn t get into in the slightest and others that I adored All in all though, it seemed to be a nice collection involving a variety of authors, writing styles, and time periods I may look into some of the authors a bit , I have meant to try short stories by Isaac Asimov and Ray Bradbury in particular I honestly haven t read much sci fi, so my list of favourites may seem od [...]

Originally published at The Nameless Zine Check it out for reviews.If you are enthralled by the beauty and passion of 18th Century Scotland in Outlander or long to journey through time and space with The Doctor, award winning anthologists Jeff and Ann VanderMeer have assembled the perfect guidebook for you.The Time Traveler s Almanac is the definitive compilation of time travel related stories, including 70 fiction and non fiction works from the earliest published story about a time machine, Th [...]


  13. When we re talking about whether or not a story s time travel logic makes sense, it is important to remember that every story builds its own framework for its own logic from the intro to The Time Traveler s AlmanacThough I am still reading The Time Travler s Almanac, I just have to go ahead and write something about how wonderful the collection is so farI especially love the amazing short story by Robert Silverberg called Needle In A Timestack It s part love story, part self discovery and has on [...]


  14. The Time Traveler s Almanac is collection of time travel fiction and features authors that range from Ursula K Le Guin to H G Wells who wrote one of the most well known pieces of time travel fiction, The Time Machine to newer, not so well known writers like Tony Pi.The Weird is one of my favorite if not my most favorite anthologies of all time so I really didn t expect to like Almanac as much but I have to say that it comes pretty darn close For one, I felt like the stories in Almanac were consi [...]

  16. The Time Traveler s Almanac purports to be the largest and most definitive collection of time travel stories ever assembled, and I was unable to find anything capable of disputing this claim The editors have compiled 72 pieces by luminaries of the genre like H.G Wells, Ursula K Le Guin, George R.R Martin, Douglas Adams and Isaac Asimov Highly recommended for all sci fi and time travel buffs.Read my full review at Pop Mythology.Matt HlinakAuthor of DoG


  17. I would like to be honest I have failed to complete this book despite sticking to at it for months ages , and yet I am so sick of finding it grinning at me like a hideous laughing Buddha statue whenever I check in at , that I decided to mark it as read However, I have a justification handy This tome is like OED, and that book, as everyone would agree, can t be COMPLETED, despite being full of riveting as well as important stuff Therefore, using that analogy, I am stuffing the tome to the shelf h [...]


  18. This is the most comprehensive and best anthology of Time Travel stories possible It functions as a collection of many great stories, a historical account of the topic and an artifact of history in its own right Additionally, this is an introduction to many writers I may never have come across it is also an opportunity to revisit familiar masters of the short story regardless of genre Overall this is an excellent collection on several levels.


  19. This is a massive volume of short stories all relating to time travel Some are quite good, and some are awful, so it is really a mixed bag I would not recommend reading many of them in one sitting as they will begin to blur together but to read them slowly over time to properly contemplate each, as some are profound and will stick with you Highlights include Thirty Seconds From Now by John Chu, Time Gypsy by Ellen Klages, and Palindromic by Peter Crowther among others.


  20. I m a sucker for most anything on time travel But I think among my time travel anthologies, this one is the heaviest yes literally, and figuratively, I guess , with the most eclectic collection So eclectic it doesn t just cover time travel via scientific invention, which is my least attractive conveyance for time travel, because it s always going to be a variation on H.G Wells s The Time Machine this book has stories featuring a laptop, a suit, even a bicycle as a time machine Showcasing works f [...]


  21. Given the book s massive length, I was very tempted to do some sort of labored joke about how reading it was like time travelling into the distant future I ve mostly spared you from that you re welcome The Time Traveller s Almanac is an anthology of science fiction stories about time travel And really, the first thing that will strike you about the book is how vast an anthology it is, with 71 different short stories maybe 70, depending on how you count Harry Turtledove s two part contribution It [...]


  22. What an interminable trudge desperately hoping to find rubies in the copious dust By the time I d finished this I was desperate for an actual time machine so I could go back and warn myself not to bother.


  23. This was excellent.This tome has a great number of styles and voices, and every single story was lovely.

  26. Mr Sherman and Peabody introduced me to the time machine They entered the WABAC machine to immerse themselves in moments of history where their presence altered the unfolding events to the correct version of the story we know in the history books It was all great fun at the time for a kid, spread over ninety one cartoon segments involving Cleopatra, Gutenberg, Florence Nightingale, James McNeil Whistler and so on timetravelreviews tv_r The Twilight Zone, 2001 A Space Odyssey, Woody Allen s Sleep [...]


  27. If you re any sort of fan of time travel, whether it s Back to the Future, H G Wells The Time Machine, or even Bill and Ted s Excellent Adventure or perhaps you enjoy discussing, debating and at times lambasting the possibility and impossibility of time paradoxes then you need to get yourself a copy of The Time Traveler s Almanac.Well known editors Ann and Jeff VanderMeer do a magnificent job of grouping the many time travel stories together into categories, and breaking them up with nonfiction [...]



  28. So, a very large collection of time travel short stories Like all such collections, some were better than others There were a couple I didn t care for not surprising given the shear quantity of material presented , many that I was or less ambivalent about not bad, but didn t really catch me and a few that were quiet good I ve listed these last few below Another Story of A Fisherman of the Inland Sea Le GuinDidn t necessarily realize this was Le Guin until I went to make this list If you like Le [...]


  29. The Time Traveler s Almanac, edited by Ann VanderMeer and Jeff VanderMeer, is very likely the only anthology that you ll ever need if you re interested in reading science fiction stories and novellas about time travel Divided into sections, including Experiments, Reactionaries and Revolutionaries, Mazes and Traps, and Communiques, the volume ranges from an excerpt of H.G Wells immortal The Time Machine right up to works by contemporary authors such as Michael Swanwick, George R.R Martin and the [...]
