Well, after an absence of some weeks I’m back rooting about in the mailbag for questions, and got a good one for today involving Time Travel:

As always: Keep the questions coming! I’ll get to them all eventually.

    What about, too, limited time-travel ability? One thing I read was that every “special power” has to have specific boundaries or limitations in sci-fi/fantasy or what-have-you, and you have to say what these are early on. What do you think about that?

    Beth: I’d agree in the sense that you have to define your parameters. But on the other hand, you can decide that the power is limitless–that presents its own storytelling challenges, actually, and can limit you even more than tight rules. IMHO.
