Race through Time in the Best All-Time Time Travel Fiction

A guide by Time Travel Fanatic (1st Wormhole on the Left)

Products sampled from this guide:
Faces in Time: A Time Travel Thriller This is a new book, but it is my favorite all-time time travel novel. It contains some of the best insight and new thought on how time travel actually works in an exciting story of a television writer who goes back in time to save a gorgeous movie star from a terrible mistake. Lots of action, a jailbreak, gambling, murders, and high speed chases.
The Time Machine (Penguin Classics) H.G. Wells' classic that really gave birth to the time travel fiction genre. The movies based on the book have never quite lived up to the text itself. Wells was truly a man ahead of his time, and this novel still holds up. The Time Machine is a very short novel, which only adds to its appeal of racing through time.
Replay Ken Grimwood's highly acclaimed time travel story of a radio journalist who dies only to wake up as his 18-year-old self, giving him the dream of reliving his life with knowledge of the future. Before long he discovers a woman who has also been sent back in time to relive her life. Things become difficult as they learn that their knowledge of the future is powerful but also a burden.
The Accidental Time Machine Maybe it's not Haldeman's best novel of his career, but this is still a very enjoyable time travel novel with an interesting main character in that he is not a scientific genius, but rather a normal person who accidentally travels through time.
Time Travelers Never Die
Somewhere In Time
The Time Traveler's Wife Not my cup of tea--not enough science for me, but it's a time travel story that many people have enjoyed.
Flashforward
The Best Time Travel Stories of the 20th Century: Stories by Arthur C. Clarke, Jack Finney, Joe Haldeman, Ursula K. Le Guin, Short story collection.
Time and Again Campbell Scott's best work.
About Time: 12 Short Stories Short story collection.
From Time to Time Not as good as Scott's 2 works listed above, but it's still a fun read.
The Door into Summer Robert A. Heinlein's classic
The Man Who Folded Himself
Doomsday Book
The Time Ships
Lightning Arguably Koontz's best work.
The Mirror
Timeline Don't let the awful movie ruin this book for you.
Outlander: A Novel A little on the romance side, but well done.
The End of Eternity Asimov time travel
