Fiction that plays with time seems to stick with me. Whether this is because it appeals to my tendency to think of the future in pluralistic terms or not, I’m not sure. All I know is I like ’em.

Books from recent years:

  • The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North
  • All Our Wrong Todays by Elan Mastai
  • The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger (okay, this was 2003, but it’s a modern classic. Forget the movie ever happened.) 

Movies from recent years:

  • Edge of Tomorrow
  • About Time
  • Looper
  • Age of Adeline
  • Hot Tub Time Machine
  • Source Code

And how can we forget:

  • Back to the Future
  • Groundhog Day
  • The Terminator andTerminator 2: Judgment Day

For bonus points: consider Vox explain different types of time travel (static, variable, multiverse) in the context of Game of Thrones
