The Time Machine in alphabetical order is a complete rendition of the 1960’s film version of HG Wells Novella re-edited by us into alphabetical order from beginning to end. In doing so, we attempt to perform a kind of time travel on the movie’s original time line through the use of a system of classification.

Authors consider this experiment as using what they have decided to call ‘a constrained editing technique’ in light of the literary artistic movement Oulipo who would make works through the use of constrained writing techniques.
