T

Time-Traveler

Time travel is the concept of moving between different points in time in a manner analogous to moving between different points in space, generally using a theoretical invention known as a time machine. Time travel is a recognized concept in philosophy and fiction, but has a very limited support in theoretical physics, usually only in conjunction with quantum mechanics or Einstein–Rosen bridges.

Featured Time Traveler:

Andrew from Renegade

Andrew was a great character for starting this series. He was still learning as a time traveler and makes a pretty big mistake. He gets stuck in time and develops a crush on one of the girls there. I thought he was fun to read about because he was sort of on a mission and he stuck to it. I liked the adventures he was having. Definitely a good book to pick up if you’re into time travel.

Summary: There are just three rules to being a time traveler.

1. Do not, under any circumstance, interfere with your environment during travel.
2. Do not attempt to carry other persons or large articles during travel.
3. Keep your talisman on your person at all times.

When time traveler Andrew Simmons loses his talisman in pre-revolutionary Boston, he must race against the clock to retrieve his only way home. Everything is on the line – family, love, freedom, honor, and quite possibly the future. But as time reveals a long line of dark secrets, Andrew realizes he must save more than just his skin. He must also save his kind.

I’m not big into time travel. That Ruby Red series sort or turned me off of it. Any good examples of it out there? Happy reading!

  1. There is an amazing time travel story that teaches you a lot, but it is in German. “Wo warst du Robert” by Hans Magnus Enzensberger. It is about a boy who travels through time by mistake each time he rubs his eye. It starts off in Germany in the 1990s then he lands in Cold War Russia, where he watches a film that brings him to Australia in the 1950s then a photo brings him to Gemany in the 1930s etc. he lives in Scandinavia, witnesses the 30 year war, and is an apprentice to a Flemish painter.
    I can only recommend it! I read it twice already. I checked Wikipedia the title in English is “where were you, Robert?” and sometimes “lost in time”.

  2. I love time travel novels. (Ha! I even wrote one.) I think readers of the time-slip novel would enjoy The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger, Kindred by Octavia Butler, and To Catch the Wind by Jasmine Cresswell–just to name a few that I like.
