Jack Finney – Time and Again
Jack Finney’s most celebrated time travel story is, Time and Again. This 1970 novel is genius. His time traveler is a man named Simon Morley who lives in New York City and works for a secret government project. He ends up making his time jump from the famous Dakota apartment building because the structure would also exist in the past (1882). NOTE: Ten years after this book was published, John Lennon would live in this building and be killed in front of it.
It was long rumored that Robert Redford was going to make a film version, but that never happened. However, in 2012 Lionsgate studios optioned the film rights to the novel, with Doug Liman set to direct and produce it. (Fingers crossed)
Jack Finney died of pneumonia and emphysema in Greenbrae, California at the age of 84. He was one of the greatest time travel authors the world will ever know.
