Portals & Paradoxes

Ever wish you could go back and read your favorite books again for the first time? *Sigh* It may never be possible, but at least you can listen to some of our favorites for the first time! These titles feature protagonists who slip between worlds for science, for revolution, for revenge, or simply by accident. With twists and turns, and maybe a couple do-overs, a well-crafted time travel story upends consensus reality to guide us through thrilling and subversive alternatives.
