Contemplating Time Travel

The concept of time travel has always fascinated me, but not necessarily for the obvious reasons.

Contemplating Time Travel

I’m not terribly interested in going back in time to change things — I’m quite satisfied with the way my life has been going and is going. But I would love to be a fly on the wall — heck, forget that I’d like to make friends with the amazing people I’d admire throughout history.

Can you imagine what it might have been like to chum around with Abraham Lincoln? Budha? St. Mary? What if I could attend the very first World Con and meet my favorite authors before they became famous. How cool would that be?

Anyway, time travel has fascinated people for a long time. In his article, “A brief history of time travel, David Sapsted says, “for more than a century, the possibility has captivated both boffins and fiction writers – since H.G. Wells introduced the idea of a time machine in The Chronic Argonauts in 1888, and since Einstein’s theories gave the notion an awful lot of academic clout early last century.”

So I thought I’ll collect a list of links about time travel and present them to you here:
