    1. Time travel stories can be a lot of fun. H. G. Wells changed history forever with his story of a man who goes into the far future to see what’s happened to humanity. It made for at least one good movie. Of course, the problem with any type of time travel story is “casualty” (ie what happens if you go back in time and kill your own grandfather). Physicists get around it all by speculating on an infinite number of pasts, presents, and futures. Which puts most time travel stories into the rea [...]


    2. Usually on a collection of stories like this I’d try and break it down in to the different stories. I can’t really do that on this book though. Partly because because up until the final part (I’ll talk about that later) it is a single story, but mainly because every time the chapter end heralded a change in writer I’d kept reading and not realised there was a change in writer for a couple of pages. The story flows very well from one section to the next. At least until the end of the stor [...]


    3. David Cranmer came up with the concept and four exceptional writers brought it to life.Dr. Robert Berlin has created the Baryon Core, a device that can predict and redict the future. He swipes his creation from his employer, The Company, and disappears into time with it.Their head of security, Simon Rip, is charged with following and retrieving their invention. Dr. Serena Ludwig, beautiful scientist, joins him in his pursuit.Five stories make up the book and an essay by Ron Scheer on time travel [...]


    4. I really enjoyed the first four of the stories in this collection. The stories were all a part of the same story arc, and they worked well together. Overall, I'd give the first four stories four stars. The fifth story ("The Final Painting of Hawley Exton") was simply confusing to me, and I read it twice. I saw a few places where the story intersected with the story arc from the previous four stories, but whether considering that or disregarding it, I couldn't really figure the story out, and I r [...]


    5. This was a fun book! It was an interesting cross between a crime/noir story (in its storytelling) with time travel/science fiction. With each section written by one of five different authors, you would think it would be choppy, but it is not. Well told, and well paced. In a way, it played out like an old movie serial, one little adventure at a time. My only problem is that it ended rather abruptly. Before I knew it, I was reading a non-fiction essay on time travel, and I had to stop and say, "Wa [...]


    6. Outstanding little piece of madness. I have read way too much time travel literature for a sane person and from memory, it's one of the best times I've had reading some. Simon Rip is your typical swashbuckling hero caught in a tale that's everything but typical. Chad Eagleton's conclusion DARKLING IN THE ETERNAL SPACE in particular is a slam-dunk finish that raises to and above the expectations Chris F. Holm, Charles Gramlich and Garnett Elliott had already set. And those expectations were high [...]


    7. I read the 2014 re-release and enjoyed the hell out of it! A Rip Through Time is a collaboration between multiple authors telling a single story rather than a collection of short stories sharing a common theme or universe. The end product is a terrific blend of pulp adventure and sci-fi time travel, with some pretty imaginative spins. And in the grand tradition of pulp serials, the door is left wide open for a return appearance of Simon Rip. I couldn't help but grin at the last page, advertising [...]

    9. This was a great deal of fun, a pulp yarn incorporating cool time travel concepts (I'm a sucker for time travel stuff). There was just enough weird science to keep the connected stories feeling real enough, mingled nicely with the two-fisted antics of our hero, Simon Rip. Lots of twists and turns along the way, keeping the reader guessing about who's the good guy and who's the bad guy although we're never in doubt about Simon himself, natch. Wrapped up with a fascinating essay on time travel in [...]

    11. What great fun this one was. Four writers working from the core idea of a fifth writer, David Cranmer, have put together a grand romp across time, and in the process played off each other's ideas in exciting ways. This is the kind of pulp adventure you don't often see anymore and I was thrilled to be invited to be a part of it.
