Forbidden Future is a time-travel anthology published by Masquerade Publishing. You can check out quick blurbs of the different stories below.

FF CoverI don’t want to focus on any one story in particular so this review is on the book as a whole. There were a couple of fantastic stories in this anthology, unfortunately there were also a couple that weren’t so great. So overall, I’m giving it three stars.

The anthology is beautifully edited and formatted- read like a dream so no problems there. The stories stuck to the theme (so it did what it said on the box)- also fantastic. If a couple of the not-so-good stories had been replaced with others then this anthology would have gotten at least 4 stars, BUT don’t just take my word on it. What I didn’t enjoy other people will love, it’s all a matter of opinion.

So, if you are looking for a few short reads in the time-travel genre I do recommend you pick up this anthology. I think time-travel stories are hard to pull off but these guys did a pretty good job: thumbs up all round.
