8 Captivating Time Travel Science Fiction Books That Will Warp Your Mind

Dart backwards and leap forward into alternate timelines with these enchanting time travel books for the ultimate immersive sci-fi entertainment.

Science fiction is only just becoming reality in the 21st century. We have autonomous cars on the horizon, a nerd billionaire putting all stops to establish a colony on Mars, and our everyday appliances now talk to each other.

Exciting as these tech advancements may be, we’re still a long shot away from the sci-fi conjectures authors have proposed for decades—warp drives, Dyson spheres, and yes time travel.

While scientists determine plausibility and sort out the technical details, allow some of the brightest minds on the planet transport you to worlds that stretch the limits of imagination. Whatever your motivation may be—temporary escapism, geeky enthusiasm, an awesome reading experience, or all of the above—here are the best time travel science fictions books in no set order.

#6 The Forever War by Joe Haldem

The thing that makes this a standout book is Haldeman's uncanny ability to suggest social changes under different circumstances.  From a society living 50 years from now that lives communally and is embarrassed by the idea of personal property, to one in 300 years that has mainstreamed homosexuality to control the population and labels straight people queer, to the final, mind-bending conclusion, each scenario seems both foreign and ultimately plausible.  In addition, the odd nature of the romance between two time-accelerating soldiers is unique and ultimately touching.

#7 Rant by Chuck Palahniuk

If you're looking for a rather twisted and complately off-the-wall take on time travelling you should take a look at 'Rant.' Palahniuk has put together a work full of time travel paradoxes that not only will warp reality but the minds of everyone who reads it. Equal parts hystical and disturbing it is just the type of work you would expect from the author.

#8 11/22/63 by Stephen King

In recent years King's work has been hit or miss for fans but most readers can agree that the master of horror has crafted a unique time paradox where one man is trying to save the future by fixing the past and is trapped in repeating events to not only save the world but the love of his life. As with most of King's writing you can expect a leading character who isn't going to have an easy road ahead of him.
