These seventeen new science fiction tales focus on time travel and the related paradoxes including the impact on the present by changing the past and meeting one¿s self or ancestors, etc. The short stories are fun to read, but the mode of delivery never allows any of the entries to go deep into the seemingly impossibility of time travel. Still fans of the topic like this reviewer (EC comics hooked me during my prehistorical period - the late 1950s) will find all are Wells with this anthology. All the entries are fun for those who enjoy reading TIME TWISTERS especially enjoyable are ¿Yeshua¿s Choice¿ at Masada, ¿Downtown Knight¿ (the mobster meets the Templar on the latter¿s turf), nineteen years old conscript Pheidas of the Philistine army who has ¿Occupation Duty¿ in Gaza and ¿Voices¿ as Joan of Arc learns combat strategy with a modern day military unit. The rest are well written fine contributions to a delightful compilation with all the time in the world to stroll down a not so ¿Mundane Lane¿. --- Harriet Klausner
