* WhateverHappenedToTheMouse: [[spoiler: Exactly where the million dollars came from (and the note that merely says ''Get in the car and go'') that bailed Matt out of jail in 2059 is never explained, as he and Martha end up dropped in 1898 and never create another time machine. Also, at no time does the novel mention Matt setting in place measures which would allow a descendant of his (who might conceivably [[RedHerring look at least a bit like Matt]]) to go the the law firm with the cashier's checks and note.]]

''The Accidental Time Machine'' is a ScienceFiction book by Creator/JoeHaldeman about a man who [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin accidentally creates a time machine]] and has some quirky adventures with it. The main problem is that the time machine can only go into the future, and each time he uses it, the stretch of time he jumps doubles. He figures that sometime in the future, someone will create a time machine that can take him back home, so he continues traveling forward and exploring the various worlds in which he arrives.
