Good imagination

I enjoyed this good science fiction travel book. It certainly does give one a good idea of what commercial time travel would be like. (Although, of course, there would probably still be people who would abuse it, like to win at gambling.) It, for instance, mentions time travel package tours, to certain times and places. One is a Christian tour. The main event is the Sermon on the Mount. That tour has also, for instance, the Roman Colosseum to see Christians being persecuted, and another day to see the Christians hiding in Catacombs. Another package tour example is times and places in ancients Greece and Rome. It could include the above two days as optional extras.

Creative, Fun, and Practical!!

A fun, well-written book, that will tell you *everything* you need to know on your Time Travel adventures! Funny story...once I was qualified, I used my time belt to go back and visit an ancestor, Meriwether Lewis (of Lewis & Clark fame). When he told me that life in Virginia was making him tired, I told him to "Go Rest". He heard me wrong, and well, the rest is history, as they say. Glad to play my part. A note for the author/publisher: While this is truly a great book, I have discovered a few minor typos. I went back to 1988, but was unable to speak with the right person to correct them. If you do get this message, please make the corrections...I will await the changes to ripple through to my copy (actually, I guess I won't be waiting once it's done, and this message will disappear). Anyway, if you are thinking of reading this book, do not hesitate! (It is also a great attention-getter for reading on the plane.)


This is fiction-- mostly-- but it's not quite a novel. Imagine, if you will, a future in which Time Travel is something you can do as a tourist. A guide book is published, complete with ads, and just to be cute, they publish it in the past as well.They examine the mechanics of time travel, as well as the laws, recommended stops, safety tips, and the history of time travel, as represented in this fictional future as well as science fiction (including sci-fi that hasn't been written yet).The "ads" alone are worth the cost of the book.

Whimsey & Time Travel, plus reference! Good on any fan's bookshelf.

This is a (whimsical) guide to time travel. Your difficulties as a tourist in other eras, your various options in time machines, & all the fun you can have as a Time Traveller are all covered in this very amusing book. There is a section of books & films about Time Travel that is ideal as a reference text for anyoone interested in the subject. I know where I'm going on my vacation. Or, more accurately, WHEN. A great read! :)
