Racing from year to year at lightning speed is the alluring premise behind wildly successful books about time travel.  First popularized by H.G. Wells, time-travelling novels have become guilty reading pleasures to escape modern life for the past or future.  Stories about time travel either intentionally or inadvertently send main characters spiraling into parallel universes.  Readers get sucked into riveting plots when even the slightest changes to history’s timeline can cause epic, disastrous effects.
