In a novel or a film, when the action or hero is suddenly transported to another period in history, their past or their future; when two or more stories are told concurrently, but each one is set in a different period of time.
Timeslip occurs in novels such as 'The Historian' and 'The Swan Thieves' by Maria Kostova; 'Holes' by Louis Sacher; 'A Study in Scarlet' by Arthur Conan Doyle; but not 'The Time Traveller's Wife' or "The Time Machine" which are novels about time travel.
