What if you had all the time in the world?

Thirteen authors answer that question with short stories about time travel. Go back in time to right a wrong, forward to see the future. No jump is too large, no method unfeasible, no lesson beyond learning.

• Visit the past to learn a family secret.
• See the formation of a future dictatorship.
• Assume responsibility for weaving the fabric of time.
• Travel back in time to WWII.
• Use a family heirloom to solve problems.
• Wear an inheritance to visit ancestors.
• Leave a dystopian future for the hope of something better.
• Make history come true in an unexpected way.
• Fight evil fairies to protect a chosen angel.
• Live with the childhood memory of visitors until the day they arrive.
• Seek medical help for a memory issue and get way more than bargained for.
• Discover that with great power comes great responsibility.
• Uncover the secrets of a pharaoh’s tomb and curse.

Do the characters observe or interact? Is the outcome better or worse than the original timeline? Read these stories to learn how far they go, how they get there, and what happens when they return.

The scope is virtually limitless, definitely timeless.


I love genre anthologies, especially when they are by a bunch of talented authors like you will find listed below. But the thing is with book compilations, you won’t always love every single story in the group. You know what, that’s okay. This book gave me everything I was looking for.

Quantum Wanderlust is a FREE book that gave me the opportunity to meet a few authors I didn’t know and enjoy their writing. What more could you ask for?

Today, I’m going to concentrate on some of the authors I didn’t know to give you a taste of what you will find in this collection.

The first short story in the collection is called, “Family Tree,” by Mae Clair. This was my first introduction to her writing. I loved the pacing of the story and never knew what was going to happen next – and I couldn’t guess! If you love time travel and fantasy, this story will deliver.

Another story I enjoyed was called, “Fabric of Time,” by Michele Jones. Once again, this had a time travel/fantasy edge to it with an ending I never saw coming. Great plot and intrigue.

The story titled, “To getting What We Deserve,” by Teri Polen blew me away! I loved the creativity of this story. This one put me right into the thick of things. Let’s just say that the karmic ending was spectacular!

There are plenty more stories in this collection to read and enjoy – thirteen of them to be exact. Personally, I was thrilled to have the chance to sample some new author’s writing. I didn’t connect with all of the stories but like I said, this is a satisfactory compilation which gave me a quite a few hours of reading pleasure. Grab the book and see for yourself! <3

          1. Actually, I was the editor of that anthology. It was a lot of work but so worth it. Great flash and a lot of writers involved. I’ve been thinking about a small anthology for years. It would be wonderful. What are you working on???

            1. That is so cool, Sarah. I’ve been working on submissions for the second volume as a member of the ranch. I’m currently writing book 2 of my series, The Heart Stone Chronicles. Another friend and I have a four book series called Fairies, Myths, & Magic filled with poetry and short stories. We hope to publish the first one early June. Busy times.

  2. Fabulous review, Colleen. And a fantastic shout-out too. You rock!
    I have this on my Kindle and look forward to reading it. I really enjoy these collaborations of talent. Thanks for sharing.
    Bravo to all. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Natalie. I really enjoyed these stories. I love anthologies and this one was full of great stories. I met new authors, too. What a great deal with the book being free. Hugs, my friend. <3

  3. Fab post sis,thanks for sharing and glad I caught your post on Facebook as I’m not supposed to be reading blogs lol. I’m off to Amazon. Congrats to authors! <3

  4. A great review from a work that includes some of my favorite authors; and it’s such a pleasure meeting authors whose work is as yet unknown to me. I’ve added Quantum Wanderlust to my TBR list and look forward to reading it.

  6. Thanks so much for reviewing Quantum Wanderlust, Colleen. I’m so glad you enjoyed it, and I’m thrilled for the mention of Family Tree. I had such fun writing that story and contributing to the anthology. Given the book is free, I hope your readers will take advantage of the myriad of stories. It offers the chance to meet many authors.
    Thanks again!

    1. Thanks, Staci. I enjoyed almost all of the stories which is a typical response, I would think. I didn’t highlight everyone (I could have)! The best part was that I met a bunch of new authors. That is truly a gift, indeed. <3

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
