In episode 90 of the SF Signal Podcast, Patrick Hester asks our irregulars to weigh in on: Time Travel!
Time travel has been a popular part of Science Fiction for over a hundred years. H.G. Wells used it for The Time Machine in 1895. Mark Twain used it for his novel, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court. Heinlein, Lewis, Jones, Bradbury, Asimov, Ellison, Butler, Tutrtledove ad Willis have all written stories that involved time travel in some form. Star Trek did it, so did Quantum Leap and The Time Tunnel, and Voyagers!
