9780007245765: The Complete Short Stories. Vol. 2 (v. 2)

The second in a two volume collection of short stories by the acclaimed author of `Empire of the Sun', `Crash' and `Super-Cannes'. The new edition is introduced by Adam Thirwell.With eighteen novels over four decades - from `The Drowned World' in 1962 to his final novel `Kingdom Come' in 2006 - J.G. Ballard is known as one of Britain's most celebrated and original novelists.However, during his long career he was also a prolific writer of short stories; in fact, many people consider that he is at his best in the short-story format. These highly influential stories have appeared in magazines such as New Worlds, Amazing Stories and Interzone, and in several separate collections, including `The Terminal Beach', `The Venus Hunters', `Vermilion Sands', `Low-Flying Aircraft' and `Myths of the Near Future'.Set out in the original order of publication and frequently the point of conception for ideas he further developed in his novels, these stories provide an unprecedented opportunity to see the imagination of one of Britain's greatest writers at work. This edition is part of a new commemorative series of Ballard's works, featuring introductions from a number of his admirers (including Robert Macfarlane, Iain Sinclair, James Lever and Ali Smith) and brand-new cover designs from the artist Stanley Donwood.

About the Author:

J. G. Ballard was born in 1930 in Shanghai. After internment in a civilian prison camp, his family returned to England in 1946. His 1984 bestseller `Empire of the Sun' won the Guardian Fiction Prize and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize. His controversial novel `Crash' was made into a film by David Cronenberg. His autobiography `Miracles of Life' was published in 2008, and a collection of interviews with the author, `Extreme Metaphors', was published in 2012. J. G. Ballard passed away in 2009.

Review:

`A marvel ... there is something a little shaming in reading Ballard: you have to face the fact that there exist writers with such fresh imaginations they can't write five pages without stumbling on an alternate world' Zadie Smith`Each of Ballard's 98 short stories is like a dream more perfectly realized than any of your own ... Simply a master story writer - the maker of unforgettable artefacts in words, each as absolute and perplexing as sculptures unviewable from a single perspective' Jonathan Lethem`One of the most haunting, cogent and individual imaginations in contemporary literature' William Boyd
