    This collection of unabridged, unforgettable tales, written by some of science fiction's most esteemed authors, pays homage to one of the genre's most cherished story types. Whether time travel stories leap forward in time or slip into the past, they remain popular with fans.

    "Positively awful collection of stories"

    Story

    This is really the worst collection of time travel (or for that matter science fiction!) stories I've ever read or listened to. Droning, pointless, and uninteresting - what could be worse.

  • Adam Canfield Watch Your Back!: The Slash, Book 2

    Story

    As co-editor of the Slash, the school paper, Adam Canfield is used to getting the story. What he's not used to is being the story, which is just what happens after he's mugged by some high-school students for his snow-shoveling money.

    But it's hard to keep a low profile when there's still baritone and basketball practice, a new principal to figure out, a science fair sham to uncover, a bully survey to monitor, a 300-year-old tree to save, and the next issue of the Slash to take care of.

    Both my kids and I enjoyed this very much. Witty, insightful, and good story.

    Whatever happened to Calico Joe? It began quietly enough with a pulled hamstring. The first baseman for the Cubs AAA affiliate in Wichita went down as he rounded third and headed for home. The next day, Jim Hickman, the first baseman for the Cubs, injured his back. The team suddenly needed someone to play first, so they reached down to their AA club in Midland, Texas, and called up a 21-year-old named Joe Castle. He was the hottest player in AA and creating a buzz....

    Story

    It's true this is not the typical John Grisham legal novel, but he is just an excellent writer and storyteller, and that applies to this novel. Well worth the listen.

    Story

    Newly divorced and robbed of his farm by his real-estate shark of an ex-wife, 60-something Cliff is off on a road trip across America, on a mission to rename all the states and state birds and redeem them from the banal names men have given them.Cliff's adventures take him through a whirlwind affair with a former student from his high-school teaching days 20-some years before, to a snake farm in Arizona owned by an old classmate, and into the high-octane existence of his son, a big-time movie producer.

    Scott says: "A picaresque novel for baby boomers"
    "Missing the mark"
    Overall

    I suspect the author planned to offer some grand insights into life and change, but the insights aren't grand, the characters aren't really very likeable, and in the end, one is left wondering why it took so long to make the authors pretty inane point.

    It's true the writing style is colorful, and it might have even worked as an essay or short story, but eventually one has to actually say something, not just put words on the page.

    Wouldn't recommend at all.
