RIP J.G. Ballard

One of my favourite authors James Graham Ballard passed away after a long battle with cancer. His uncompromising and brilliant work helped frame the new wave of science fiction and elevate it from mere pulp to the potential of true literature. We who are left in this Atrocity Exhibition called life are poorer for the loss.

I second that emotion.

He was delightfully subversive.
