about

This anthology collects early fifteen stories (1819-1916) that demonstrate time travel, time shifts, and other temporal tampering before the "golden age" of science fiction took time travel stories to heart. Stories include the well-known and sometimes overlooked: Rip Van Winkle, Peter Rugg, Missing One's Coach, A Christmas Carol, A Tale of the Ragged Mountains (Poe), The Clock that Went Backward, An Uncommon Sort of Spectre (Mitchell), Newton's Brain, The New Accelerator (H. G. Wells), "Wireless" (Kipling), The Hour-Glass, John Bartine's Watch (Bierce), Phantas (Oliver Onions), Accessory Before the Fact (Algernon Blackwood), and Enoch Soames. This is a useful collection for those investigating the early history of time travel fiction.
