    Collision with Chronos is probably the most novel time travel book I ve read which immediately makes it at least a little bit special in the nicest possible way At the beginning of the book he credits the model of time described in the book to J W Dunne and his books An Experiment with Time and The Serial Universe However, don t panic, you don t need to read these books, Bayley does a perfectly good job of explaining the ideas himself What is interesting though is how this model effectively Collision with Chronos is probably the most novel time travel book I ve read which immed...

    This book has a couple of interesting SF ideas, but they never really go anywhere The characters are bland and forgettable The factions are, without exception, impossible to root for They re either hateful and violent titans and the reverse time aliens or passive and dumb the dev and the chinese in space Of course there s also the entity, whatever it was called, which just acted as a deus ex machina and conveniently solved the unsolvable problem and provided the poor little dev, who coul This book has a couple of interesting SF ideas, but they never really go anywhere The characters are bland and forgettable The factions are, without exception, impossible to root for They re either hateful and violent titans and the reverse time aliens or passive and dumb the dev and the chinese in space Of course there s also the entity, whatever it was called, which just acted as a deus ex machina and conveniently solved the unsolvable problem and provided the poor little dev, who couldn t ...
