Jenny Diski misremembers Stephen King publishing one of his novels online with all the words in alphabetical order. Maybe she was confusing King with Douglas Adams and Terry Jones, who published the latter's novelisation of the computer game Starship Titanic in this fashion in 1997. 'Douglas, being enamoured of the internet,' Yoz Grahame, who worked on the game, recalled, 'wanted to put the whole text of the novel online, and was disappointed when the publishers nixed that idea. However, we still found a way to do it.'
