This anthology is all about time travel, a concept that represents much human potential: what we can learn about ourselves as we travel through time, what we would sacrifice in order to change things for the better or what perspective we gain from the past in order to secure a better future. This anthology represents all of those kinds of adventures and more as we see a wide variety of stories that can be told within this genre. We have six stories here that showcase that variety:

Alesha Escobar’s “Logan 6” – In the future, Logan 6 is on the hunt for a murderer, Adam The Usurper, trying to capture him before he can wreak havoc on the future. Unsuccessful in his mission, he jumps back to the Time Access Chamber and talks to a confidant about unusual dreams he’s having and asks about previous time travelers who attempted to bring in Adam. The answer to this question propels the story in spellbinding and fascinating directions as Logan 6 struggles to change the future for the better, or so he thinks. Filled with many delightful twists and turns, with one surprise after another culminating into a final showdown filled with deliciously jaw-dropping revelations.

H.M. Jones’ “The Light Storm of 2015” – Lifelong friends Ben and Gina hear a crazy theory about a light storm event in the sky that only occurs once every few thousand years. Researching it, they realize this might be the key to possibly time travel. As their relationship deepens and they bond over a shared tragedy, they decide to take a chance to see if the theories are true and take a plane into the air and fly into the anomaly.

I've got to meet the person who thought of this project. Having had a lifelong interest in time travel, this compilation of short stories was an absolute pleasure to read. There have been many movies about this, i.e., Time Machine (twice), Back to the Future Series, Planet of the Apes, and many others. In these movies and other novels, it seems the characters are out to travel to the future to change something in the past. However, in these short stories, the time travellers are all over the place. I tend to put myself with the characters in a book. In these stories, I found myself wondering what would I do if given the chance. Would I change something if I could. Would I change the outcomes of my own interaction with others from the past. Weird. I cannot imagine the brain power that went into writing these stories. I found it interesting the science of time travel is not the focus. The stories have that but also romance and human nastiness.

I will not describe the basis of the stories as that is for the reader to do. I will tell you I have read many books by Devorah Fox. This story is way off the beaten path for her. Previous writing puts you deep into the medieval in such a way you cannot put the book down. Or how about Naked Came the Sharks set in a tropical atmosphere. Now, she had time travel. It is truly amazing how much comes out of one brain. Turning the Tides is an appropriate title for such a delicate story. How could she have come up with the idea of one writer who had two husbands and the consequences, good and bad, of changing destiny. How complicated can you get? Absolutely fabulous writing.

Masters of Time Travel is a great read. Recommend it highly

‘The Time Machine’ by H.G. Wells was published in 1895. Towards the end of the 20th century, there was ‘Doctor Who’, a British TV series. The twisted ‘Twelve Monkeys’ was released in 1995. ‘The Time Traveler’s Wife’ by Audrey Niffenegger was published in 2003 and adapted into a movie in 2009. Around the same time, American TV series ‘A Town Called Eureka’ explored accidental time travelling and changing timelines. Now we also have a brave anthology entitled ‘Masters of Time’ to take us away and speculate.

Missions are not always as they seem for time-travel agents, be they human or clone. A light storm can be more than colourful electricity. Children should be a bit wearier of some paintings. Bending time to save people might require sacrifices, and timing.

In ‘Masters of Time’ the reader finds an interesting mixture of romantic love, filial love, teenage hormones, and the traditional science-fiction, mixed with a dose of manipulation, a pinch of mortality and the rewriting of time.

‘Masters of Time’ is a captivating collection of short stories, diverse in genre and tone. It is an agreeable read for a rainy day and the last page will drop you with a cliffhanger just as the sunshine chases the clouds away.

You will start wondering: What if…….

This collection short of stories deals with time travel, both in the future and in the past. I must say that I was impressed by the quality of the writing throughout the anthology. Each story presented a unique approach to the a well-worn genre and managed to not only take the reader to another time and place, but do it with imagination and on occasions, touching, emotional narratives that left me wanting more from the writer.

I have kind of listed the stories based on my personal prefences.

The story The Light Storm of 2015 by HM Jones, was a tale of best friends and their fascination with a light storm that only occurs every thousand years, and could be a time portal. Their reasons for going through it are truly touching and I was impressed by the quality of the descriptions of both character and setting.

Another, rather short story, Turning the Tides by Devorah Fox, has a similar theme to The Light storm, but is told in a very different way. It reminded me of The Butterfly Effect, in that it deals with the dangers, or otherwise, of trying to change the past to influence the future. This was a truly touching story that had me thinking about it long after I read it.

Again dealing with loss and the idea that a loved-one could be brought back, Staring Into by Timothy Ward, is more a journey of self-discovery than a physical time travel tale. I enjoyed the narrative style of Andy writing a letter to himself, it added to the drama of the piece. There is lots of tension and building of drama in this story, with his belief that he can travel through time by looking at a camera screen. Even though the action is restricted, I thought the concept a wonderfully imaginative way to deal with time travel.
