Now with masterfully restored original artwork, lovers of time travel, romance, and adventure can rediscover Time and Again, the beloved classic hailed as “THE great time-travel story” by Stephen King, author of 11/22/63, and praised as a “pure New York fun” by Alice Hoffman, author of The Rules of Magic.
When advertising artist Si Morley is recruited to join a covert government operation exploring the possibility of time travel, he jumps at the chance to leave his twentieth-century existence and step into New York City in January 1882. Aside from his thirst for experience, he has good reason to return to the past—his friend Kate has a curious, half-burned letter dated from that year, and he wants to trace the mystery.
But when Si begins to fall in love with a woman he meets in the past, he will be forced to choose between two worlds—forever.
Called “the great time-travel story” by Stephen King, Time and Again is admired for its rich, painstakingly researched descriptions of life in New York City more than a century ago, and for the swift adventure at its core. With newly digitized art, you will fall in love with this refreshed classic all over again.

An Amazing read
It may be the strongest instinct of the human race, stronger even than sex or hunger, is (sic) curiosity: the absolute need to know. It can and often does, motivate a lifetime, it kills more than cats, and the prospect of satisfying it can be the most exciting of emotions.”
Simon (Si) Morley, a 20th century office grunt, gets conscripted into a fascinating project that sends him back to 1880s Manhattan. The late Jack Finney has written one of those fascinating “time travel” fantasies since Pete Hamil’s “Forever”, a book that sits on my personal “best books list”. I’m so overwhelmed by how much I loved this book I can hardly articulate how I feel. I can see how authors like Hamil and Audrey Niffenberger were influenced by it.
When I first read about it on Tor.com,I remember make note of it.Six months or so later, when it came into my library reserve queue I didn’t get very far before I had to return it, and decided then and there it was time to get a copy. Why hadn’t I ever heard of him before? His untimely death in 1977 leaves us with a limited shelf of his work. Imagine what he’d think of the 21st century! Highly Recommended 5/5
Reading King's acknowledgements at the end of his JFK novel, already wondering what I'd read next, I found my answer and didn't regret for one moment buying Time and Again.
I just did not enjoy being told every detail of the surroundings page after page waiting for something to happen.I just gave up on the book.
