I have noticed that romance in time travel has changed over the years. Today it seems to be Scottish men with burly chests, written by women, such as Diane Gaboldon with her Outlander series, and there is nothing wrong with this. I will address these another time. But today, I want to focus on one of the greatest time travel romance stories ever created. It was written by a man named, Richard Matheson and titled, Somewhere in Time. Matheson started out writing horror films and Twilight Zone episodes. Remember the one with the Gremlin on the airplane wing with William Shatner, later portrayed by John Lithgow?
The movie starts out in Chicago and ends up on Mackinac Island at the Grand Hotel, although the hotel is not supposed to be on Mackinac, and this becomes evident when the protagonist Richard Coulier (Christopher Reeve) drives up to it in his sports car.
