Books Relating to Time Travel  (Alphabetical by Author)

In this post, I will be maintaining an alphabetical list, by author, of books I have either read, or of which I am aware, which involve time travel in some fashion.

This will be a living, growing list going forward.  I am fairly confident that my initial list includes most of the best known novels about time travel, and quite a few lesser known ones as well.  But I am under no illusion that I have identified them all.   Since this will be a growing document, please check back periodically for any new additions.

If you check the list and don’t see a book about time travel that you know of, please let me know and I would happy to add it to my list.  Just email the book title and the author’s name to  rkoehler1952@gmail.com .

This post includes an alphabetical list by author.  I also have another post which includes an alphabetical list by book title.  To see this post, please click on the following URL or select All Things Time Travel > Time Travel Books > Alphabetical List by Book Title from the menu at the top of the left sidebar on this blog.

This list also may include a brief synopsis of each book so that you may decide whether or not the author’s particular take on time travel is something in which you may be interested.  I certainly don’t expect you to be interested in all of these books just because they deal with time travel in some way.

If I am aware of, or may have discovered during research, some tidbits of information about the book, or about the author, I will include those in this post as well.

If no synopsis is included, then I am still in the process of researching it.  If there is a more lengthy plot description, it is very likely because I have personally read the book.  If I include a full description of the book, including spoilers, I will clearly precede that description with the following icon …
