3.0 out of 5 stars A misleading title 27 Jun 2003
By E. N Ritchie - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Only a third of these stories are worthy to be in a collection of the best of all time travel stories, many of the others being only competent re-tellings of other authors original ideas.
Although I liked many of the stories I was disappointed that it wasn't a collection of all top notch original time travel stories as it's title advertises, and I was especially irritated by reading an introduction to one story that referred to Robert Heinlein's "By his bootstraps" - which isn't in this anthology claiming to collect the best time travel stories!
As a whole it's a worthwhile book, though don't buy it for the comic version of "A sound of thunder". The comic is printed on good quality paper in full colour process - but as a few small pages printed in paperback format it's not a good way to see Richard Corbens art.
But it is NOT a collection of The Best. More a collection of "Some of the Best Time Travel stories, and some other ones".

2.0 out of 5 stars I persisted to the bitter end! 21 Aug 2003
By B. A FRIEDMAN - Published on
I found the premises of most of the stories intriguing. The stories were very well written. I particularly liked "Hawksbill Station." However, I found that most of the stories, including the latter, had unsatisfying endings. This collection did not live up to its title.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
Best of All Time? I guess that is relative to who is picking. Is this a very good collection of stories? Yes, definitely, as the stories here average 3.80.

The authorities have come up with an unconventional but effective way of controlling dissidents. Send them back a billion or so years into the past. A bit hard to escape from there, really.

When a new prisoner is sent back, the current top dog, an aging main with a recent serious injury has to try and hang onto his life, and work out what is up with the new guy.

2.0 out of 5 stars The best? Please! 11 April 2012
By Emma Thompson - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
You cannot have a "Best Time Travel" collection without Ray Bradbury's "A Sound of Thunder." Even other time travel stories quote his. Ridiculous title for this book!

1.0 out of 5 stars NOT the best time travel stories of all time.... 10 May 2011
By Larry R - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Not by a long-shot. I'm something of a fan of the genre, and I think that most of the stories in this collection are mediocre, at best. And there's so much to choose from in this realm - I'm not sure what the editor was thinking. For starters, consider Heinlein's short story _By His Bootstraps_, or his novel _The Door Into Summer_. For lighter-hearted, more emotional fare, try any of Finney's time travel stories, several of which are the collection _About Time_. And if you want a real roller-coaster of a story, try John Varley's _Millennium_ which, in addition to being the best (IMHO) time travel novel ever written, has the rather unusual trait of having the name of each chapter borrowed from a classic science fiction time travel short story. So the book, in addition to being a great romp through time, is also a pretty good bibliography of the genre. A much better place to start than this disappointing collection.

CAUTION: Do NOT, under any circumstances, view the *movie* of Millennium. How someone could ruin that good a book boggles the mind. Those responsible for that screenplay should be ashamed of themselves.
