Best Time Travel Stories review

My review of "The Best Time Travel Stories of the 20th Century", Edited by Harry Turtledove & Martin H Greenberg is up at Travel on over and check it out. ha ha ha :

A quick point.

There are 11 good stories, a few ok ones, and some bad ones in the book. In the review, I give negative comments on some pieces by some pretty big-name guys, namely Arthur C. Clarke, Joe Haldeman, Jack Finney, Jack Dann, John Kessel. Of those 5 authors, I'm only familiar with Clarke's other works (Rendezvous With Rama = genius), but all have had pretty stellar careers. No disrespect to anyone, but I can't call a bad story a good story, no matter the author.
