Subject: (urth) Virconium Date: Tue, 12 Mar 2002 12:09:51 -0500 Hello Mantis, I did a quick search on my library site, and I found these entries: 1 The Centauri Device / [By] M. John Harrison. BOOK 1974. 2 The Committed Men / [By] M. John Harrison. BOOK 1971. 3 The Pastel City / [By] M. John Harrison. BOOK 1972 [c1971] Do these make up Virconium? And the order is oldest to newest? This series looks very interesting. Thank you, sir.
