SCIENCE FICTION SHORT STORY REVIEW: The Mammoth Book of Time Travel - Ed. Mike Ashby

Release Date: 03/09/13
Publisher: Robinson Publishing


Life is quiet for Alex Verus. Amazing. With a flat full of friends (and the occasional fish), and business booming, why not enjoy the humdrum here and now? But of course that's too good to be true. In a sudden and cruel pincer movement of fate, Alex finds himself fighting a sinister and powerful gang as well as his own demons - for the same crime. Held hostage by the choices of his past, Alex's future is now in jeopardy ...


Short stories are a wonderful addition to any reader’s collection. Firstly because you get to pay out for authors that you already know and love, and secondly because, for that price you’ll get to try some authors that you’ve either not had the money for or worried about risking your hard earned cash on.

They’re a great addition to the a readers bookshelf and this one brings great talent such as Christopher Priest, Fritz Leiber, Robert Silverberg and a great many others/ All round a great read and one that I had a lot of fun with all in. Definitely worth the time as well as the money and a good way to lose a lunch break or to while away that journey time with your own selection of time travel tales.
