BRUNNER, John. Total Eclipse. Doubleday, New York, 1974.

8vo. Original orange cloth, titled red to spine, in illustrated lilac and orange dust wrapper depicting something crablike and sinister; pp. iv, 187; a very good copy with some slight fading to the spine.
First US edition, author's own copy. Classic old school science fiction, drawing a picture of scientists digging up the remnants of an alien civilisation, only to discover a horrible truth about the devastation. Expect a great deal of "well, according to our data"s and "HOW COULD WE HAVE KNOWN"s. Brunner won a Hugo award in 1969 and is credited both for coining the term "worm" in relation to malware, and for predicting the emergence of the computer virus.
