Certaines histoires sont intéressantes, mériteraient même d'être développées ; mais d'autres n'ont pas grand intérêt et on a beaucoup de mal à entrer dans l'histoire !

5.0 étoiles sur 5 99-Cents For Hours of Pleasurable Reading 26 août 2013
Par Jeff Soyer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
As a science fiction fan, one of my favorite sub-genres is time travel. I've always been intrigued by the idea of it, probably ever since I read H.G. Well's <em>The Time Machine</em> when I was about 10-years-old and happened to see the movie shortly thereafter.

So, I had a hankering to read some more such stories this Summer and picked-up (okay, downloaded) a couple of very reasonably priced Kindle collections.

I've completed the first book I bought, The Time Travel Megapack, which gives you 26 very good stories featuring all flavors of time travel. Some are serious, some not so serious. Almost all are a very good read. Note that most of these stories are not "moldy oldies" dug-up from the public domain pit but are often very recently published in SF magazines.

Note: I'm not a physicist, so I don't concern myself (when reading escapist literature) with the plausibility of "how" the author's time machine works. I just enjoy the ride.

Here's the best part: You get hours (and I do mean hours, this is a big book) of pleasure for 99-cents! I heartily recommend it.

In this megapack there are time travel stories to delight everybody. The theories about time and how to travel through it are as varied as the stories themselves. Some are serious, some funny, others a little outdated... but all are fun! If you like this kind of story, buy this megapack, do't think twice about it. You'll love it.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Time travel through the ages. 12 septembre 2013

A Megapack is exactly the right description. A great collection of thought provoking and imaginative stories. The writers came up with great ideas and delved into many of the usual time-travel conundrums. There were also many humorous aspects to the situations and my favourite is the man from, or pretending to be from, the future who expected a chair to appear under him whenever he went to sit down. Overall a lively and fun bunch of stories.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Diverse in setting, style, and quality 21 janvier 2014
Par Karl Janssen - Publié sur Amazon.com

This e-book file is one of many "Megapacks" offered by Wildside Press, a publisher that reprints content from classic pulp fiction magazines. Editor John Gregory Betancourt, who runs Wildside, has compiled 26 tales of time travel that were originally published from 1928 to 2013. These stories range in size from several novella-length works to three installments of the Ferdinand Feghoot series of one-page jokes that culminate in groan-inducing puns.

The subject of time travel is open to infinite possibilities, and the stories in this collection cover an appropriately broad sweep of settings, from the Pliocene Epoch in Clifford D. Simak's "Project Mastodon" to the demise, from old age, of the known universe in the trippy "Nebogipfel at the End of Time" by Richard A. Lupoff. Despite such epic parameters, however, a lot of the stories here fail to impress with their utilization of the time travel element. In many cases, time travel is merely used as a tangential plot device in an otherwise run-of-the-mill adventure story, or as a means of setting up the punchline of a joke. Such stories rise to the level of clever, but strive for little more. One time traveler longs to escape his shrewish sister; another visits Oktoberfest; yet another becomes a con artist. The oldest story in the book, "Armageddon 2419 A.D.," is the debut adventure of Buck Rogers in the 25th century. Unfortunately, it's one of the weaker entries in the book, an uninspired military adventure that capitalizes on the "yellow peril" paranoia of its day by depicting a world ruled by an evil Chinese empire.

A few of the better selections do make the extra effort to really explore the scientific possibilities of time travel and the conundrums it may cause. The best story in the book doesn't contain any time travel at all, but it nonetheless pushes the envelope of the genre. In H. Beam Piper's expertly crafted "The Edge of the Knife," a history professor's unexplained visions of future world history end up jeopardizing his career. Two other Piper stories are also among the collection's best: "Time and Time Again," in which a grown man's consciousness is transported thirty years backward into his own childhood body, and "The Flight from Tomorrow," in which a deposed dictator from a hundred centuries in the future escapes his enemies by traveling to the past. In another excellent selection, "The Eternal Wall" by Raymond Z. Gallun, a present-day man dies in a car accident, only to have his mummified corpse revived a million years in the future. The collection's most recent story--Edward M. Lerner's 2013 novella "Time Out"--is a crafty and thought-provoking exploration of the mystifying problems that arise when you mess with the continuity of time. I wouldn't be surprised to see a film adaptation in its future.

Like any other genre or period of literature, probably 90 percent of what was published during the pulp fiction era was garbage. Wildside Press performs a valuable service by not only resurrecting stories from these long-lost magazines but also curatorially separating the wheat from the chaff. Nevertheless, Wildside publishes such a large quantity of work that some mediocre content is bound to sneak in. Perhaps the true value of these Megapacks lies simply in the pleasure of making unexpected discoveries like--in my case--the works of Piper. Yet even the mediocre stories offer a pleasant glimpse into the glory days of the pulps. Reading this collection is a bit like sifting for gems in a bucket of corn. It's the gems that make the book worth its purchase price, but the corn delivers its own brand of satisfying nourishment.

The Kindle file has a lot of typographical errors; not enough to hinder understanding, but enough to annoy. One of the shortest stories was pasted twice, so it appears duplicated in its entirety. The copy I downloaded even had the wrong cover image. Wildside publishes good stuff, but they should pay more attention to quality control.
