Time travel to the present book recommendations.

I am interested in reading a book about time travel that is about a person or people traveling from the past to the present. Can someone recommend some books with this plot device? If there are any movies or TV shows with this kind of plot as well, I would be interested in knowing about those as well. My Google fu is weak, and when I tried a search, all I got was books about people from the present traveling to the past or the future, or maybe someone from the future traveling to the present or the past. Thank you for any suggestions!

TIME AFTER TIME, certainly.

Lightning by Dean Koontz

I wonder how long it’ll be before some smartass pedant points out that most novels involve someone traveling from the past to the present? I won’t do it, but the Dope is full of smartasses who will.

One of my favorites!

This is a powerful but sad film: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Navigator:_A_Medieval_Odyssey

And here’s a tearjerker by Asimov: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Ugly_Little_Boy

ryan beat me to Lightning I see; that was my first thought.

The Apocalypse Troll by David Weber.

It’s a recurring theme in Spider Robinson’s Callahan’s Place stories, and in the two sequels to Mindkiller.

Movie: Kate and Leopold
T.V. Show: Sleepy Hollow

Came to mention this one. Fun book.

Warlock and Beastmaster 2: Through the Portal of Time

There is me. I have traveled form 1946 to the present one day at a time. Been at my journey for 68 years and still enjoying it it.

Did you see Post #4? :wink:
