Time Travel Fantasy

Stories about people who step into another time can be the most memorable of fantasy tales. This chapter includes books about travel from our time to the past and future, and stories in which travelers from the past or future visit the twentieth century. A few stories deal with two time periods that somehow touch, permitting glimpses into the past or future without any actual traveling. In fantasy, the means of time travel must be magical, not scientific. Tales of travelers to other worlds, rather than other times, are found in Chapter 5C, Travel to Other Worlds. Stories about people who meet ghosts from the past have been placed in Chapter 4, Ghost Fantasy, if the ghosts, not the human protagonists, do the time traveling.
