I'm working on a time travel story (series?) aimed at kids. What are eras of interest? Is depicting slavery too much, too disturbing? Advice would be appreciated.12/11/2007 #1
Slavery in which eras? Are we talking about black history slavery, or like Ancient Rome slaves?1/16/2008 #2
As for interesting periods...I always like Ancient Egypt myself, or the Romans...the Black Death would be a perilous time for your heroes to face, too.
Good luck with the story! I had an idea for a story series involving time control and travel myself...PM me sometime, maybe we can compare, brainstorm and help eachother out!
Slavery isn't too disturbing just don't like show a guy hitting his slaves with a whip and talking about how they scream and bleed and everything. That would be too disturbing.5/5/2012 #3
Writer Dean R. Koontz has warned beginning writers to be very careful about time travel stories to avoid confusing paradoxes and has suggested anyone interested in the sub-genre read the works of Robert Silverberg first.12/22/2012 #4
