The genre of science fiction and all its themes have become subjects of scholarly criticism in recent decades. As for Time, one of the genre's major topics, it has been so since the first scientific approaches attempting to understand the notion of Time. In this concise study, I intend to outline the history of science fiction, highlighting - due to formal limitations - only major trends and events as well as general topics of the genre. This historical and thematic background is followed by the analyses of time travel and time machines in some exemplary works of significant science fiction authors: H. G. Wells, Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein and Ray Bradbury. The book can be useful for those, who are well-acquainted with the works and authors mentioned, and equally for those, who are not yet familiar with the genre itself, its history or major topics and are looking for an introductory work presenting the topic of time travel through influential works of science fiction.
