I hadn't recognized the author's name and, essentially, dove into this collection not knowing anything about the contents other than that they were all centered around the premise of time Travel (TT). I'm a huge TT fan, so this was a no-brainer choice.
I was rather surprised at the tone of the stories. They were all, how can I say, rather light and gentle. Whimsical and slightly humorous at times. If you excuse the irony, they were quite dated, and I thought, "I haven't read anything like this since I was a kid..." I checked to see when the stories were first published and the dates of 1957 etc. put everything into perspective.
As a previous reviewer remarked, I could also easily see how many of these stories were exactly on par with many vintage Twilight Zone episodes; same vibe, same pace. Which is certainly not a bad thing.
The current price is $12.99 and, if I'd paid that much for it, I'd have been very disappointed. However, I bought my kindle e-book for a few dollars on a special offer which seems reasonable to me.
