Timey-Wimey Stuff

Alternative timelines, timeslips, bootstrap paradoxes and more: what makes a great time travel story, and why do storytellers return to the subject time and time again? How do you avoid the dreaded paradox when writing? And is it all, as the Doctor suggests, just ‘wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff?’ Ted Chiang’s short fiction, The Story of Your Life, became the acclaimed film, Arrival; Whiti Hereaka’s new book, Legacy, is a classic timeslip tale; and Michael Bennett has collaborated with Ant Sang on the time travel graphic novel, Helen and the Go-Go Ninjas. They chat with Dan Bedggood.
