Time Travel Already Exists - In Fiction

Don't you know.

I like the talk about time as space in fiction - I've come to think of it that way too, especially in my own work. The Book of Elizabeth deals quite a bit with time. All the characters more or less come from different eras, none of which exist any longer, but of course still do; they occupy a space accessible only now by the reader.
