The sale on Monday, April 12 with Richard Winterton Auctioneers live from The Lichfield Auction Centre at Fradley saw international bids stack up from all over the world.
Mr Winterton said: “A wonderful and well-deserved result for the copyright to this superb collection of 18 novels whose audacious plots spearheaded an entire genre.
“Craig’s catalogue was Lot 1 and it certainly launched today’s sale in style with a huge amount of interest from across the globe.
“The international nature of an online auction with internet bidders joining us from all over the world seems very fitting too, given the focus on technology so intrinsic to Craig’s work.
“His fans regard the author as the true originator of the techno-thriller and hopefully this sale will prompt the beginning of a new chapter for his impressive catalogue.”
He added: “We were especially pleased to be carrying out the sale on the instructions of the estate of Craig’s wife Jill as they lived for many years in Whittington on the outskirts of Lichfield.”
