Timescapes Summary


Timescapes: Stories of Time Travel by Edited by Peter Haining

In 1995 Professor Stephen Hawking, author the best-selling A Brief History of Time, admitted, "If you combine Einstein's general theory of relativity with quantum theory, time travel does begin to seem a possibility." Among sci-fi writers it has always been a possibility, from H.G. Wells to the present day. Most of them have explored the idea, making time travel one of the hottest themes in fiction today. This ground-breaking collection is a must for all time travel fans, with stories from the masters that embark on voyages beyond the imagination. William Gibson, the leading light of cyberpunk, sets off on a journey to find 'the tomorrow that never was'; the controversial J.G. Ballard focuses on the chillingly possible powers of television; Arthur C. Clarke uses a time distortion machine with horrifying consequences; and cult favourite Philip K. Dick looks at the fearful paradox of a 'time travel programme'. With stories from twenty more writers, including Martin Amis, Brian W. Aldiss, Ray Bradbury, Robert A. Heinlein, Isaac Asimov and, of course, H.G. Wells, Timescapes offers a galaxy of brilliant time travel writing, taking us back to the present, into the past, and forward to see the history of the future. As Professor Hawking has also said: "We may not yet be able to boldly go where no man or woman has gone before, but at least we can do it in the mind." This book is our time capsule.
