I expected more depth on the process of writing a story in the time-travel subgenre. Instead, this book was a kind of short beginner's guide to the idea of using different historical periods as a setting for stories. The author, for example, spends a lot of time giving a shallow survey of what might make a particular period unique, while recommending that the novice writer make sure to research the period in question. This is good advice, obviously, but this slim book can't really be an effective survey of 2,000 years of history and the survey portion seemed misguided. The discussion of time-travel as its own unique genre seemed to scratch the service with references to well-known time-travel story and examples drawn from the author's stories. My chief complaint is that I didn't feel like I was getting any real insight into the nuances of time travel fiction, such as the various kinds of science fiction stories, the problems, what problems arise in writing such stories, or where the inspiration for such stories can be found.

    You have to be a Time Traveler to be a Time Travel writer. Simon Rose is both.
