Description
First published in 1978, this selection of 19 stories from the author of Crash and Empire of the Sun is as timely and intriguing as ever. J.G. Ballard was "a visionary in both style and substance ... the literary equivalent of Salvador Dalí or Max Ernst" (Washington Post Book World), and here gives us dystopian, eerily prescient tales of the human psyche and its relationship to nature and technology that still provide perspective on our computer-dominated culture.

"A writer of enormous inventive powers. Ballard has, like Calvino, a remarkable gift for filling the empty, deprived spaces of modern life with the invisible cities and the wonder worlds of the imagination."—NYTBR

"Complex, obsessive, frequently poetic, and always disquieting chronicles of nature rebelling against humans, of the survival of barbarism in a world of mechanical efficiency, of entropy, anomie, breakdown, ruin.... The blasted landscapes that his characters inhabit are both external settings and states of mind."—Luc Sante
