I think that is a good idea (reading both together). I don't know why it was not published as one long book or within a few months of each other. I was feeling very frustrated when i came to the end of Blackout. It just stopped in the middle of the story,

You might also like Anya Seton's Green Darkness, Dinah Lampitt's To Sleep No More and also her As Shadows Haunting. All are historical and I couldn't put them down.

My novel Time and Again fits the definition of time slip. It revolves around an accident that causes the 'hero' to slip from present day to the 1942 Pacific war. The two time lines twist and turn together until the climax is played out across time.

The sequel, shortly to be published, continues in a similar theme, and investigates the existence of multiple universes through time and space and the possibilities of crossing between them. I am working on the third and final book of the series.

Check it out at or read the sample.

Wow! That is a very comprehensive list - thank you. Some of the authors I recognise (Kate Morton, Barbara Erskine, Kate Mosse) but I have never read their books. Seems I may have been missing out on something,

Thank you - I will have a look at your website.

The Portal Chronicles look interesting. A clever concept.

A book that is well worth checking out is The Iron Bridge by David Morse. It's about the efforts of a time traveller to influence the building of the iron bridge in Coalbrookdale.

A bit cheesy but Jude Deveraux - A Knight In Shining Armour is definitely a timeslip novel. Also Traci Harding - The Ancient Future Trilogy & if you like the fantasy genre mixed with time/alternative world travel then Mark Anthony - The Last Rune series or Guy Gavriel Kay - The Summer Tree series or Rob Scotts - Hickory Staff (Eldarn Series) or Terry Brooks - Magic Kingdom for Sale/Sold.

Libros Libertad UK would like you to explore The Qliphoth Paul A Green's novel has been described as "a word quest launched from the edge-lands of arcane knowledge" (Iain Sinclair), "a book that draws you in and leaves you gasping for air" (Death Ray Magazine), "a stream of the funniest, most hip and haunting prose" (George McWhirter) , "focused, beautifully paced, freshly minted," (George Amabile), "magnificent, both in range and depth of arcane snoopage" (J.Michael Yates)

t's a dazzling fusion of occult fantasy and speculative fiction that evokes a wild transmutation of everyday life. Magick collides with physics to create a fissile reality - a voyage into dangerous zones that veers between hilarity and horror...

Lucas, a bewildered student, seeks out his dad Nick, psychedelic-era wreck and self-proclaimed channel for "Qabalistic knowledge", now confined to a mental hospital alongside Wolfbane, a forgotten rock & roll icon. Pauline, his rationalist teacher mother dreads their encounter.

Her nightmares seem realised when Nick escapes and Lucas disappears - to enter a parallel world, peopled by a rogues' gallery of bohemian riff-raff and sexy priestesses, whose operations - artistic, erotic, criminal or magickal - are scribed with hallucinatory intensity. Think Mervyn Peake meets William Burroughs - and add a dash of Aleister Crowley...

This genre-bender is worm-holed with dark wit and satire. The manias of an imploding alternate world are revealed as a modulation of our obsessions, here at the base of The Qabalistic Tree, amid the broken shells and wreckage - the Qliphoth - of our Creation. And sea-side resorts will never seem the same again...

I know I'm late to the thread. I probably should've posted when I first saw this thread months ago. But what's the difference between time slip and time travel? If this was already explained, my apologies for not reading the entire thread.

Fearney by James Long. Love it! He is supposed to be releasing a follow up to this and I have it on pre-release order (for in excess of 8 months.) Don't know what has happened there quite frankly.

Is it allowed to promote one's own work here? If so you might like my book - now only 69p - limited time only.
Time Watchers: The Greatest of These

"It's the twenty-fourth century and Robert York has the best job in the world. A socio-historian with Chrono-HQ, his job involves travelling back in time through the entirety of human history. This mission though, is taking him further back than he has been before, further than anyone has ventured before - through ten millennia to the Mesolithic, to visit the pre-historic inhabitants of ancient Kent's Cavern - the oldest known human habitation in Britain.

Sixteen year old Yana's life is a simple one; the business of survival - a repetitive round of hunting and gathering is her existence, mingled with the gentle social life of the Cave. Her future seems certain - a mate, babies, growing old and eventually dying in the same small community she was born in. But all that changes when traveller Robert comes to her village. Welcomed by her community, only Yana suspects Robert is not exactly what he purports to be, but she cannot begin to guess the immensity of the truth.

Born ten thousand years apart, theirs is an impossible love story, one that will keep you hooked till the very last page."

You might like to try my One Apple Tasted One Apple Tasted, which slips back in time to find out what lies behind the heroine's rather strange behaviour. My new one, The Bravest Thing, is even more of a time slip novel but not out yet.
