This chapter explores the relationship between time and identity through an excavation of three science fiction novels set in a futuristic London or London-esque city. The interplay of past, present, and future in the production of identity is seen in the excavation of the protagonists’ lives. Each faces a personal crisis of identity that can be resolved only by excavating the past in order to navigate the present and construct the future.

Keywords:   Time and identity, Science fiction, London, production of identity
