How can you leave out the whole "1632" series by Eric Flint et al? There's also "The Girl, the Gold Watch, and Everything" by John D MacDonald which has a sort of time travel in it (only forward though).

I just discovered a nee Heinlein book I'd never heard about called "The Door Into Summer" (http://amzn.to/v1P53a). I think it's just been re-discovered and published -- it seems to be available only in electronic format -- I also found it in the iTunes Store and downloaded it to my iPad

I remember when this came out, but for some reason I never got to see it -- I'll check to see it it's on NexFlix -- otherwise I've just added it to my "Wish List" on Amazon

As far as movies, "The Butterfly Effect" with Ashton Kutcher was a pretty good time-travel story about changing the past and how that has unexpected effects on the future.

I thought I'd read all of Heinlein but I don't remember this one - -I just bounced over to Amazon and ordered a book of his short stories that contains this one -- thanks for the suggestion...

Several people mentioned short stories as well as book/movie. Heinlein's "All you Zombies" is definitely up there.

The Philadelphia Experiment (1984) is a film by Stewart Raffill, which follows a couple of Navy seals who get sucked into a time vortex and into the future due to a large experiment gone wrong (i just like how a whole village gets teleported hehe) I watched it because it had relevance to the T.V. series LOST, and it isn't bad for the time it was made.

What about Terry Gilliam's fantasy film "Time Bandits" -- I guess it was aimed at a younger audience, but I liked it.

I'm currently in the middle of reading "Lest Darkness Fall" L. by Sprague de Camp -- it's very interesting -- it involves a guy from "our time" being transported back to Ancient Rome. The opposite might be "Pebble in the Sky" by Isaac Asimov which involves a guy from "our time" being transported to Earth in the far distant future.

I'd forgotten about this one also -- I haven't read that for more than 30 years -- I'll have to keep my eyes open for a second-hand copy.
