The Mammoth Book of Time Travel SF edited by Mike Ashley, part 3
A man gets trapped in a time loop. Bad.
“I’m looping through the same thirty minutes forever.”
“The entire universe would have evaporated into dead cold soot.”
The Very Slow Time Machine
A time machine becomes a decades long obsession. Good with a nasty twist.
“He’s been insane from the start.”
“Credo quia impossible.”
“The alternative is hideous.”
An unutterable abomination against god is taking place in a nuked London. Good.
“The whole situation isn’t precisely normal, you know-”
“Unable to imagine an aftermath they would want to live in.”
‘In The Beginning, Nothing Lasts...’
A bizarre tale about time running backward. Ugh.
A crappy tale about a war on a time ravaged planet.
Time is disrupted by strange occurrences in this odd but haunting tale. Good.
Bad taste defined.
A love story told in timey-wimey fashion. Good.
Red Letter Day
It is graduation day and the students await the letters sent by their future selves. But for the ones who don’t get letters, does it mean they have no future? Good.
“Something bad happened - something not quite expunged from the history books, but something not taught in schools either.”
