The original novel

(formerly titled "Bid Time Return")


Somewhere In Time

Richard Matheson's original novel, retitled from "Bid Time Return" to match the film, "Somewhere in Time." The absorbing novel is different in several key ways ffrom Matheson's screenplay, but well worth the read for the fleshing out of the characters, their motivations, and insight into their hearts. (Some have told us they like the novel even better than the film!) Matheson is a consummate writer of science fiction, on of the original writers of Twilight Zone, (which was only the beginning of his impressive body of work.)
