You are correct -- this was a classic

Another classic -- short but great -- I have it in his anthology "Earth is Room Enough"

Or, Asimov again and another short story, "The Immortal Bard".

Can't believe noone has mentioned Asimov's immortal scientific paper "The Endochronic Properties of Resublimated Thiotimoline". Chase it down if you can. Wonderful stuff.

I must admit that I loved Groundhog Day -- I have the 12:01 DVD sitting at home waiting for me to find the time to watch it. I also loved Millenium the movie (I never read the book -- but I'm a huge fan of John Varley so I just added it to my Wish List on Amazon). Similarly I only saw the movie version of The Philadelphia Experiment...

I have a rule about SciFi: When they start time-travelling or alternate realities (which usually follows) the series is dead. [Star Trek] Enterprise introduced time travel in the very first episode! QED. They had all of space to explore and that wasn't enough for the first hour?! But I digress. The best time-travel film is "Groundhog Day". A very close second is "12:01". Both for the humor. You can't take yourself too seriously when doing time travel. "Millenium" the book was better than the movie and "The Phildelphia Experiment" the book, NOT the movie, was also excellent.

Two more books just popped into my mind -- there was "Timeline" by Michael Crichton and "Mammoth" by John Varley... ...both of these are good reads that I would happily recommend.

I must admit that I'd forgotten about the "1632" series ... I did start reading the first one (which is sitting on the shelf behind me in my office) but I ground to a halt because I wasn't enjoying the writing (or something ... I no longer recall) Re "The Girl, the Gold Watch, and Everything" - -I just looked it up on Amazon -- this looks to be a good one even though it's only available second hand -- I've added it to my ever-growing Wish List on Amazon... ...I can't wait for some money to come in (there are good months and bad months) so I can actually lay my sticky fingers on all of the juicy books I have lined up in my wish list...

...and what was the other series similar to 1632 where the island of Nantucket was transported back to the pre-Columbian era?

The Martian: A Delightful Exploration of Math, Mars & Feces

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
