    John Brunner Book Group (Various, 1956-88). The late British Science-Fiction author John Brunner coined the term "worm" (meaning software which reproduces itself across a computer network) in the classic "cyberpunk" novel The Shockwave Rider. This group of six hardcover novels and one pulp includes Mr. Brunner's own personal copy of that book, along with copies of Three Days in March; The Crucible of Time; Age of Miracles; The Traveller in Black; Good Men Do Nothing; and a signed copy of the pulp magazine New Worlds Science Fiction V15#45 (1956) featuring the short story "Fair" written under his pen-name Keith Woodcott. Most of the books include a bookplate with a cool cartoon of Brunner.
