I have a copy of Michael Crichton's Electronic Life.

http://crichton-official.com/books-electroniclife.html

In this book, he talks about the myriad of input devices for computers, including the mouse. Oddly enough, he did not like the mouse and thought that it would go by the wayside as a peripheral device.

That was in '83.
