The Complete Stories of J. G. Ballard

In his introduction to The Complete Stories Of J.G. Ballard (W.W. Norton, $35), Martin Amis calls Ballard the “most original English writer of the last century.” Indeed, Ballard’s stories are a blend of science fiction and dark, psychological dramas, akin to the stories of Orwell and Kafka, but entirely original and distinctive. From the endless exploration of urban space in “Escapement” to the humorous and sad criticism of sexual mores in “Love in a Colder Climate,” Ballard’s fiction reflects the social, cultural, and political issues of his time. This substantial collection is rewarding in its uniqueness and vision.
