Borrowed as a follow-on from research while compiling the recent post on Science Fiction, at over 1200 pages this book was so compendious I was unable to finish all the stories within the borrowing limit of three weeks.
As it was a collection, I wasn't worried when it expired, I'm ready for something else after that long.
They started the Preface with a great quote from Stephen Hawking:
"'I gave a party for time-travellers, but I didn't send out the invitations until after the party.
I sat there a long time, but no one came."
(From an interview with Ars Technica)
At such a length, there is room to cover a great breadth of time, with stories going back to even before H G Wells. There is also variety of writing styles and approaches to the subect, such that I never found myself thinking "What, MORE time travel?"
Many reviewers describe a book as one you can "dip into", and although I have never done so, I guess this would qualify as one of those.
Read as an e-book borrowed from Auckland Libraries via Overdrive, on my Kobo Touch e-reader.
