Time-travel stories open the entire world and all of time to writers' imaginations. The fifteen writers in this third original anthology in the Fiction River line explore everything from Chicago gangsters to Japanese tsunamis, and travel from 2013 to the nineteenth century to a vast future. Featuring work from award winners to best sellers to a few newcomers whose time will come, Time Streams turns the time-travel genre on its head.
Fiction River is off to an auspicious start. It's a worthy heir to the original anthology series of the 60s and 70s. If Rusch, Smith, and their guest editors maintain this level of quality, this will one day be one of the landmark anthology series of the genre. The fact that they also intend to include other genres, such as mystery and crime, imply these anthologies could have a greater impact.
