JG Ballard Dies
The Science Fiction author JG Ballard has died at the age of 78.
I’ve read a couple of his books: Cocaine Nights and recently The Drowned World. Both of which I can best describe as atmospheric and odd.
He was a primary figure in the New Wave movement which dared to take Science Fiction in both a literary and experimental direction.
