I have the book from the last picture, a Wally Wood cover of a decent time travel story.
Time travel is way up there with me (probably my third or fourth favorite past-time) ((time travel terminology refers to hobbies as past-times)) Did you catch Hiro on Heroes? How about Barry Smith's surfing experiences on the waves of time?The Butterfly Affect? The Time-Traveler's Wife? I just stopped by/back/over/up to say "keep reading"
Gee can I take a look at your time machine?? :-)FYI when my daughter was in high school she had to make some thing material to represent a book she read so I convinced her to do The TIme Machine by Wells so I made her a life size Time Machine out of plywood, spear electronic parts and do on that she actually can sit in. Looked roughly like the time machine on the cover of the Classics Illustrated version.
Way cool-nope, my trips are all in my head, usually right before or after sleep. The physical Wells machine always reminded me of those swamp buggies in the Everglades
