If you also like anachronism stories, you might like Jerry Pournelle's Janissaries. It is not time travel, but has a similar feel (some modern soldiers are transported to a world that has been previously populated by batches of humans from earlier phases of Earth's history, and for some reason they haven't progressed).

Ubik by Philip K Dick is built in a twisted time scheme. There was a discussion on his works here.

How about the first one I ever read "A Connecticut Yankee In King Arthur's Court"
http://www.gutenberg.org/browse/authors/t#a53

or Poul Anderson's Time Patrol novels.. can find at Baen Free Books
except this particular one and the others in the series are 5 bucks. In fact, you can find quite a few of the books there cheaply, like the Andre Norton ones someone else listed.
http://www.baen.com

My favorite though is still Connie Willis and "To Say Nothing of the Dog" which someone else suggested. A number of hers deal with time travel. The Doomsday Book is another, dealing with the plague in the middle ages England.

"Planet Of The Apes" by Pierre Boulle was actually a far better book than the cheesy movie it has long been.

To Your Scattered Bodies Go (of the Riverworld series by Philip Jose Farmer) is fascinating. The main char dies and winds up somewhere populated by everyone who has ever died on earth. It's different

Gordon Dickson's Time storm
Robert Adam's Castaways In Time
Julian May's The Many Colored Land
Arthur Conan Doyle's The Lost World
http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/139

Edgar Rice Burroughs - The Land That Time Forgot
http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/551

David Drake's Time Safari
R A MacAvoy's The Book of Kells
Vernor Vinge's Marooned in Realtime (bobbling forward not backward like most) Can also be found in the omnibus "Across Realtime" with a short story and another time travel novel of his.

Joshua Dann's Timeshare, easy to read escapist

This is almost certainly not legal. You need to take it down.

Thanks for posting it, though.

I'm partial to Keith Laumer and he has quite some great time stories. The best of them is probably The Dinosaur Beach, available in Odyssey collection:
http://www.webscription.net/p-301-odyssey.aspx
The Lighter Side has several of more light-hearted stories. I especially liked The Great Time Machine Hoax.
http://www.webscription.net/p-249-the-lighter-side.aspx
Then there's the Imperium series:

Zelazny's Roadmarks is also a time travel story. Sorta.

Clifford Simak also wrote a number of short stories that involved time travel, though the titles don't come to me offhand.

Another Heinlein time travel story is the novel The Door into Summer, which is one of my all-time favorites. (I can't imagine how I forgot to list it earlier!)

It's very good yes, but clearly very heavily influenced by "All You Zombies", which was in turn a development of Heinlein's earlier story "By His Bootstraps".

Nobody mentioned the enormous library of Doctor Who books. I mean he *is* a time and space traveller.
