Description

In 2051, commercial time travel became a global reality. Opportunities abounded for curious history buffs, futurists, and corrupt entrepreneurs. Selected Shorts and Other Methods of Time Travel is a spellbinding collection of 37 tales that explore time travel tourism and its repercussions.

In various settings ranging from Earth to deep space, Selected Shorts presents tales of those brave (or foolish) enough to adventure through the space-time continuum. Explore an era devastated by the Worlds War of 2267, cluttered with time-traveling tourists and swindlers, terrorized by the all-powerful Icelandic Mafia, endangered by ruthless corporations, and threatened by vigilante space aliens. 

The future as we know it will never be the same.

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 06, 2010 – Time-travel tourism gets an in-depth exploration in this unsatisfyingly bland debut collection. Working from the basic premise that the first time-travel business was established in 2052, Blue World founder Goodberg offers up 37 episodes, ranging from one-page vignettes to full-fledged stories, exploring alternate time lines, grandfather paradoxes, human-alien relations, and get-rich-quick schemes, often with clever twists and unexpected results. While the concept has potential and the world-building is extensive, the actual results vary from barely satisfactory to downright baffling. The individual stories often lack solid resolution or character depth, suffer from weak writing, and relying on Twilight Zone style surprise endings. Unrelated pithy sayings and pointed social commentaries separate the stories. It all adds up to a mildly entertaining assortment of mostly mediocre shorts that never really takes off.
