Science fiction provides a view into the possible future ahead of us, sometimes it is more realistic or just out of this world.

How time travel, in correlation to science fiction, is often a quick way, just to make a story science fiction, nonetheless it was truley well done in this short story and was consistent throughout the entire story, “First a day and then a night and then a day and then a night, then it was day-night-day-night. A week, a month, a year, a decade! A.D. 2055. A.D. 2019. 1999! 1957! Gone! The Machine roared.” (Page 289-Ray Bradbury). Unlike “A Sound of Thunder” in “Nethergrave” There were minimal elements of science fiction, and it only truly came into play towards the end of the story,
