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.

Dragonfly  (Darryl)
