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.
