Time Zone

Rated 3.00/5 based on 3 reviews
This is not your father’s time travel. There’s no machine, no dial. There’s no telling where or when you’ll go. The only thing that can change is you. It will make you what it needs to make you. And if you come back, it won’t be the same you. You’re messing with the nature of things, and the nature of things does not like to be messed with. Welcome to a riddle of change and addiction.

About Tom Lichtenberg

I've written a lot of stories, and one thing I've learned is that stories have a life. They want to be read, and they're brought to life by readers. Readers give them meaning, give them substance and fulfill their destinies. Stories aren't picky about who reads them. They welcome everyone. Money means nothing to them - they don't care how much the reader paid and they equally don't care how much the author made. Stories want to live and they want to be a part of your life. I often think of them as like paper boats you place upon a stream. You never know where they'll end up!

"Author of curiously engaging novellas. His stories are not driven by action but by mood and metaphysics. His premises often begin with fairly standard, often vaguely science-fiction concepts, but he spins those concepts out into melancholy, thoughtful tales in which he explores the emotion and (often) dislocation that people feel when confronted by something outside their normal experience." - Devon Kappa

Reviews of Time Zone by Tom Lichtenberg

James Jenkins reviewed on Feb. 27, 2016

I read 11% before putting this down.

I liked the premise of the book, it felt new and I would have enjoyed reading it, but it is soo.... hard to follow, the time distortions impact the story delivery and my ereader was saying I still had 1 hour 56 minutes to go, I just was not ready to make the commitment of that much time for something this distorted even though I wanted to explore the universe.

Maybe this is a clever book but I couldn't read it. I found the lack of proper punctuation annoying and distracting.

Time Zone is the best time travel book yet.

It deals with the problem of time and fate and what must happen if you slip the time stream. You change things, but not in a way you control, and you come out different from the person who went in.

What makes the book exceptional is that it illustrates what it's saying by its structure. The reader walks into a series of vignettes that don't seem connected. But they are, and you're experiencing the story the way the characters do.

By the time you exit this short book, you've come to identify with the characters, to understand their journey, what they've given up for their adventure and what they've gained.

Warning: The linear time travel story, where the hero goes back and changes an outcome, will never seem as convincing after Time Zone.
