Bid Time Return [Somewhere in Time], MATHESON, Richard
507 7319 MATHESON, Richard Bid Time Return [Somewhere in Time]
Softcover; Mass Market PB Ballentine Books: NY; c1975, 1976; First Paperback Edition 278 pages Good 
Spine and cover creases, edgewear, spine foot reinforced with archival tape. Inside covers and first and last pages faintly dampstained on bottom edge. Front free endpaper removed, pages and inside covers age browned but not brittle. Previous owner initials inside rear cover.; Also published as 'Somewhere in Time', this novel is the basis for the wonderful movie starring Jane Seymour and Christopher Reeve (with a cameo appearance by Richard Matheson). While the movie was filmed on Mackinac Island the novel is set at the lovely Hotel del Coronado in San Diego, California.; 'Bid Time Return is a stunningly romantic novel of love and passion that literally transcends time, by an author far better known for his tales of science fiction and horror. Richard Matheson's premise is captivating: What if you were a dying young man, visiting a turn-of-the-century resort hotel? And what if you fell in love with a painting of a beautiful stage actress--but she had lived and died a century before? But--what if your love was so strong that you could literally will yourself back in time to become part of her world? In the tradition of the classic romantic ghost story "Portrait of Jennie," Matheson makes his two lovers totally believable, and so the undeniably fantastic premise soon becomes completely acceptable.' This book was one of the reasons my husband proposed to me at the 'Hotel del' as he knew that this tale of love and time travel was one of my favourites. Obviously, highly recommended.
