Publisher's Summary

About Time offers a delightful return to the world of time travel and light comedy that distinguished Jack Finney’s all-time classic Time and Again. The protagonists of these 12 stories are well-meaning but at odds with their surroundings and their lives. The time to which they escape - through time travel - doesn’t always fulfill their expectations in the way they had hoped, but sometimes, they can still find their dreams.

Finney always good

I’ve been a Finney fan for years. This collection is excellent & his stories are always well done & thought provoking. There is definitely nostalgia here for days long past, but along with the yearning for a simpler time, there is usually a subtle warning of where we might be headed. This is not whiz bang Star Wars stuff. His Time & Again and Time After Time are well written novels and classics, as is Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

I so enjoyed this book

At the end of each story no matter how tied up it was, I really wanted to know what happen next. I love the writing (very clever), the characters, and the narration. Well done, all the way around. So many different ways to look at "Time" travel. Jack Finney, ever sense I was young has always been one of my favorite writers. The first time I read "Somewhere In Time", I was hooked. Christopher Reeve later in the movie.... be still my racing heart. I thoroughly enjoyed this. It was such a little escape for me.
