Author Biography

Stanlei Bellan, like any respectable time traveler, has many stories to tell. Some of the most fun and witty are in his book T is for Time Travel. In other timelines, Stanlei has been a physics professor, an engineering graduate, a start-up entrepreneur, and a winner of six Cannes Lions awards for his creative work in advertising and entertainment.

An immigrant from Brazil who was adopted by California, Stanlei is still learning how to bend time to fit his wife, two sons and a daughter, a cat, his business partners, and his many hobbies (like playing Dungeons & Dragons and uncovering fascinating historical facts).

Stanlei’s writing is inspired by an unquenchable desire to transcend reality into fantasy.

Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

T Is for Time Travel: A collection of timely short stories is a work of fiction in the science fiction, action, and time travel adventure sub-genres, and was penned by author Stanlei Bellan. The work is intended for the general reading audience and contains a collection of ten stories around the theme of time, history, and sci-fi and fantasy concepts. Short and sharp with strong concepts and memorable characters, these stories are ideal as coffee break readers, but also delve into some really interesting ideas that will leave you thinking long after you’ve finished with them. What results is a highly engaging collection that readers are likely to return to and want to relive again.

Author Stanlei Bellan has crafted a cohesive and beautifully styled work of fiction that works wonderfully as a showcase to introduce new readers to this author. I felt that each story was its own masterpiece in character work, delivering beautiful sketches of unique personalities strewn across time. A particular favorite of mine was Grida from ‘Time To Light’, who had a gritty realism that beautifully juxtaposed the ethereal goings-on of the story. ‘Better Luck Next Time’ was also a standout for me, which delivers intense pacing, very dynamic dialogue, and a harrowing atmosphere from start to finish. I am confident that whatever your taste, you’ll find a favorite in this varied and consistently high-quality collection of works. Overall, I would highly recommend T Is for Time Travel to fans of accessible short stories, impactful science fiction, and fantasy, and of course, time travel fiction enthusiasts everywhere.
