I'm always worried when people mess around with time, confuses the hell out of me.
That's why I hate those Star Trek episodes where they go back in time. It depends on your theory of time how much you can screw it up, but they never seem to tie up the loose ends properly.
OTOH, I like a good time travel story. Connie Willis's "To say nothing of the dog" is great, and Simon Hawke's "The Timewars" is pretty good. But the the best is probably Robert Asprin's "Time Scout".
