The Time Traveler's Guide
Writing time travel stories and historical fiction
The Time Traveler's Guide examines the writing of time travel stories and historical fiction. Books always transport us to other places, especially stories involving time travel or those set in different historical eras.
The book examines the definition of time travel and historical fiction, the
creation of time machines, methods and devices, selecting historical eras and settings, and creating characters and crafting dialogue. The book also explores common issues with time travel stories, and the importance of research, plausibility, description, and plot, along with writing about time travel into the future, alternate history, and parallel universes.
The Time Traveler's Guide is an excellent resource for those writing time travel or historical fiction stories for both children and adults.
