The Time Traveler’s Guide examines the writing of time travel stories and historical fiction. Books always transport us to other places, especially stories involving time travel or those set in different historical eras.

The book examines the definition of time travel and historical fiction, the creation of time machines, methods and devices, selecting historical eras and settings, and creating characters and crafting dialogue. The book also explores common issues with time travel stories, and the importance of research, plausibility, description, and plot, along with writing about time travel into the future, alternate history, and parallel universes.

The Time Traveler’s Guide is an excellent resource for those writing time travel or historical fiction stories for both children and adults.

"The Time Traveler's Guide: Writing Time Travel Stories and Historical Fiction serves as a go-to reference when writing both historical fiction books and novels that include elements of time travel...This is a unique book, overall, and I recommend it to writers and those interested in methods of time travel in general."

"Time travel is a common theme in many books and movies. It's also one of the most challenging things to write. Simon Rose has written a book full of advice for creating a time travel story. It's a great idea and coming from an experienced writer who has frequently used time travel it's an excellent resource. This little gem covers everything from how the character moves across time frames, to advice on researching and a whole lot more. It is certainly worth reading, even if time travel is not your thing. The Time Traveler's Guide is a great resource for any writer wanting to improve their craft."
