I’ve added a couple of recently-mentioned titles and done a bit of cleanup
to the list of books, although it’s not completely formatted yet. You can
find it at: http://teampli.net/ComputerBooklist.html

If anyone has corrections of comments, you can either post here or write
Peter [at] Iron-Spring [dot] com

I tried to include all titles and many comments, but I may well have missed
some.

_The Devouring Fungus: Tales of the Computer Age_, by Karla Jennings

This is definitely folklore and provides little if any evidence that the
stories related here have any reality. Still, I thought it was an
interesting book...
