Time Travel

ORIGINAL FICTION: "An Unguarded Moment"

Randall Anthony Schanze's picture

I've written and/or co-written seven stories thus far this year, and I think this is the best one. A half dozen other people have told me the same thing.

Anything more I say about it would spoil it, so please do check it out here. That's me doing a rather faltering dramatic reading. (Mental note: don't attempt such things when you're gassy. You have to keep stopping the camera, and even when you're not belching you tend to randomly break words in half or use odd diction)

Original Fiction: The Teleks, by K. Garrison Kellogg

Somehow, somewhere, someone figured out how to travel in time.  I don't know who it was; I suppose that I could find out, if I wanted to.  But I don't, probably for the same reason why I haven't gone back to see just what really started Time itself.  Some things ought to remain a mystery.

On the Edge of Tomorrow...

For whatever reason, I went on a movie watching binge this past week. One of them was Edge of Tomorrow. I went into the theater with no inclinations other than it was a time travel movie (which I like, in general) and there were combat suits like the ones DARPA is testing…and we’d get to see how they work out.

I was pleasantly surprised at the movie.

Time Story Story Time: Roadmarks, by Roger Zelazny

Roger Zelazny's "Roadmarks" is probably the first time travel story I'd ever read, back in high school. I was attracted to it mainly due to there being a dragon on the cover, and in those days, I was mad about dragons. Still am. In fact, I'm descended from dragons, but that's a story for another day...

Time Story Story Time: The Machines

When one thinks of a time travel story, one usually assumes that some form of vehicle is used to transport the protagonists to and fro in time.  While the early examples of time travel usually involved a knock on the head or some other sort of loss of consciousness, modern stories are more reliant on devices.


Such devices can be small and portable, like a watch, or large and stationary, such as Mr. Peabody's WABAC machine.  They can even be huge, like a space ship, or even alive, like the telekinetic dragons of Pern.

Time Story Story Time: Kung Fu Panda, A Stitch In Time

No one can accuse the animated Nickelodeon series Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness of being at all scientific.  Aside from being one of the best TV shows on the air these days--animated or otherwise--it really doesn't belong on a science fiction-oriented site.  Except that it recently dealt with time travel, and in a way that's so unique that I decided to profile it in my series on time travel stories.

Mr. Peabody and Sherman

Mr. Peabody and Sherman is a movie.

Let that sink in. Filler animation from The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show is now a would-be blockbuster. To the tune of DreamWorks spending 145 million dollars to make this. That can’t bode well for the course of human civilization, but I’ll be darned if the thing isn’t actually okay.   

They don’t try to explain the brilliant dog bit, or why society accepts him. That’s certainly for the best. He’s just Mr. Peabody with his adopted human son Sherman. And they have a time machine. If you can deal with that, you’re in.

"Time is what keeps everything from happening at once."


I'll admit it--I like time travel stories, especially well-constructed ones.  And since R4 has asked me to help fill out the Wednesday slot with articles, I'm going to be reviewing some of my favorite time-travel stories.
