    Description

    John Brunner - Book Group (Various, 1955-75). British author John Brunner infused his Science Fiction work with a strong sense of social consciousness, making him a hero to many a college student during the late 1960s and 70s. Here's a collection of hardback books from his own personal archives: The Shockwave Rider (one of the first SF novels fully to understand the information technology revolution); Timescoop; The Gaudy Shadows; Total Eclipse; Honky in the Woodpile (a Max Curfew novel); The Wrong End of Time; and Brunner's translation of Gerard Klein's The Overlords of War. In addition, there's a copy of the 1955 British SF digest New Worlds Science Fiction V14#41 containing Brunner's short story "The Uneasy Head", signed by the author. The hardbacks, many with Brunner's book plate inside, all range in condition from FN to VF; the digest is in VG.
