    John Brunner Book Group (Various, 1958-92). British Science Fiction author and Hugo Award winner John Brunner's novel The Sheep Look Up has been referred to as "one of sf's most telling presentations of environmental degradation"; this group of six hardcovers includes a copy of that noted book. All originally come from the late Mr. Brunner's personal collection, making this a rare opportunity for his many fans worldwide. Also included are A Maze of Stars; The Crucible of Time; Into the Slave Nebula; The Traveller in Black; and Brunner's translation of French author Gerard Klein's The Overlords of War. All hardbacks are complete with dust jackets and are on average in FN/VF condition; many have Brunner's bookplate on the inside front cover.
