My thanks to all who have offered encouragement after reading some of my earlier time travel stories ….. Looking back on an academic career in economics and history, it’s a shame so many years had to be spent writing about things that actually happened!
In this anthology of short stories, adventurers travel back in time to: a college campus in 1900, ancient Greece at the time of Socrates, Elba Island where Napoleon is exiled in 1815, Bronze Age Poland, a small Texas town in 1948, and a Michigan village just prior to the 1929 stock market crash. Others travel to the future: an Eastern European man misses the Soviet Empire collapse in the early 1990s, a 1970s era jet setter arrives in 21st century Hong Kong ruled by authoritarian China, and a young science teacher discovers lush vegetation has replaced the desert in 26th century Africa. Crises are confronted: Can a young boy who sees the future prevent deadly accidents? Will a team of divers be able to stop sailors from boarding a ship destined to sink in Lake Superior? What effect will prevention of an assassination have on the underlying hatred that motivated it?
