Andy's Anachronisms

Time Travel and Alternate Universe references pop up in the strangest places, comic strips, toys, magazines etc. When none of the regular categories of television, movies or books will do, you can find a review for it here under LEFTOVERS.

Anachronism -- Keith Allen Daniels

A poem by the late Keith Allen Daniels about anachronisms and time travel. I discovered this poem in the May 2002 edition of Asimov's Science Fiction and thought it deserved a home here at Andy's Anachronisms.

Asimov's Science Fiction -- On The Net: Time Travel

In the September 2004 issue of Asimov's Science Fiction magazine, author James Patrick Kelly profiled Time Travel websites in his regular column On The Net. I'm pleased to say Andy's Anachronisms was mentioned in a very favourable light. You can read James Patrick Kelly's comments here.

Back to the Future KUBRICKs

Manufactured by Medicom Toy company in Japan, these Back To the Future plastic figures look like a cross between Playmobile and Lego action figures. Called a KUBRICKTM for some unknown reason, I somehow doubt they are any relation to Mr. Stanley Kubrick.

LEGO Time Cruisers Series

Never at a loss for new ideas LEGO came out with not one, but two time travel based adventure sets in 1996 and 1997.

The Time Cruisers features Dr. Cyber and his trusty sidekick Sherman...oops that should read -- his trusty sidekick Tim. The follow up series The Time Twisters features a nasty band of ghosts, skeltons and mean looking guys in leather jackets.

I've reviewed one of the pieces from these adventure sets, namely the Flying Time Vessel.

Mr. Peabody and Sherman WACKY WOBBLERS

Check out these bobbleheads of Mr. Peabody and his boy Sherman that are produced by FUNKO.

Time Taggers with Kev Childs

Musican and video artist Liam Lynch has included a number of video shorts on his latest CD Fake Songs. Among these often inventive and humorous vingettes is Time Taggers with Kev Childs a time travel show for graffiti artists.


This weird bit of tabloid reporting caught the media by storm in late March 2003. The fantastical story of Time-Traveller Andrew Carlssin making $350 Million of an initial $800 investment seem to appeal to people's imagination.
