Time Paradox

Question: In Michio Kaku’s book Parallel Universes, it addresses the infinite possibility of a “time river” in correlation with Time Travel and its respective paradoxes. The one is question would be the grandfather paradox, in which if one would travel back in time and dispatch their parents his own future would would be “impossible”.

It has been suggested than not unlike a fork in the river, his own sequence of events that portray his future would remain unaffected rather the action would invoke a split or fork in the river to extend a parallel future to which he did not exist. Can you please prescribe further insight to this conundrum and any further literature on this subject would be much appreciated. For reference this is discussed on the last 4-5 pages of Chapter 5 in the book.
