Books Relating to Time Travel  (Alphabetical by Title)

In this post, I will be maintaining an alphabetical list, by book title, 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 me the book title and the author’s name to .

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

I also have another post that is in alphabetical list by book title.  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 …

    1. Mike:

      One thing about these two, raw lists that I understand is that they may only be helpful if someone has a specific author they are interested in, or knows at least a part of the title of a book that they are interested in finding. The post I think that should be particularly helpful to anyone really interested in finding a new book about time travel will be my third post in this series – the one that includes a synopsis and tidbits about each book and author. That should give someone the opportunity to browse through the list and find a book with a take on time travel that really interests them, rather than just having to rely upon the title. That post is almost ready to go. Since there are over 200 books in the list now (and growing), I don’t have a synopsis written for each of them yet, but I intend to post what I have, and then continue to add to it.


  2. this is a GOLD MINE!!! I love this! I am always intrigued by time travel. I actually just wrote a blogpost about an imaginary time-travel scenario! 🙂 Thanks for this interesting read!
