First published in 1978, this collection of nineteen of Ballard's best short stories is as timely and informed as ever. Tales of the human psyche and its relationship to nature and technology as viewed through a strong microscope, they were eerily prescient, and now shed great perspective on our computer-dominated culture. Ballard's voice and vision have long served as a font of inspiration for today's cyberpunks, the authors and futurists who brought the information age into the mainstream.AUTHORBIO: J.G. Ballard is the author of numerous books, including Empire of the Sun, the underground classic Crash, and The Kindness of Women. He is revered as one of the most important writers of fiction to address the consequences of twentieth-century technology. His latest book is Super-Cannes. He lives in England.
