Time Travel

I'm a fan of Time Travel and was wondering if anyone can recommend any ebooks free or to buy.

Although 1632 is not a conventional time travel, it kinda is. A section of modern day USA gets kicked back to 1632 Germany. There are several ebooks in this series at www.baen.com by Eric Flint.

You might also want to check out "Time Traders" + it's sequel at Baen. "Time Traders" is in their Free Library section.

From Simon & Schuster comes The Entropy Effect. A very good Star Trek book where time travel features prominently in the plot. Purchase the LIT and use CLIT to break the DRM. Then you can use lit2lrf or Book Designer to convert to LRF for the Sony Reader. And the price is only $2.99. Imagine that, a reasonably priced ebook.

Agreed. Best "time travel paradox" book ever!

Connie Willis' To Say Nothing of the Dog is a great time travel story, and funny as heck too. The title comes from Jerome K. Jerome's Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog) and the guys from that novel make a cameo appearance in Willis' novel. The time traveller's go back to the Victorian era to look for the Bishop's Bird Stump that was lost when the Coventry Cathedral was destroyed in WWII for a powerful woman who is obssessed with rebuilding an exact replica of the old cathedral.

H. Beam Piper's Paratime stories might be of interest to you. Try Lord Kalvan of Otherwhen. They are not, strictly speaking, time travel stories, as they involve travel to alternate histories, but they are good reading in any case, and may appeal to you if you like time travel stories. I would also suggest Larry Niven's Rainbow Mars for time travel humor. Some of Spider Robinson's "Callahan" stories involve time travel, usually in a very silly way. Leo Frankowski has a series starting with Cross-Time Engineer that you might try. Another Star Trek book to consider is Barbara Hambly's Ishmael. Orson Scott Card's Pastwatch addresses some interesting ethical issues with time travel (though I think he squeaks out of answering some of the questions he raises).

Happy reading!

Maybe it would be a nice idea to make a list about "Time Travel" on Feedbooks ?

Here it is: http://www.feedbooks.com/list/view/13

I also found "Key out of time" from Norton. If you see any other book about time traveling on Feedbooks, or any additional public domain books, I can easily add them to the list (pretty useful way to group books together).

A great collection of time travel stories (mostly longer ones, actually) is "The Best Time Travel Stories of the 20th Century: Stories by Arthur C. Clarke, Jack Finney, Joe Haldeman, Ursula K. Le Guin" edited by Harry Turtledove and Martin H. Greenberg. It's available at the Connect Store.
