5.0 out of 5 stars - Fascinating

This book contains a mixed bag of time travel stories. Most are quite entertaining and well written, while a couple were lackluster with a variety of mistakes. In my opinion, the best of these was The Screams of the Hypes by Terrence Zavecz, followed by The Yahweh Project, by TR Dillon. The book is well worth reading.
