J.G. Ballard remains the author I look up to most of all. He has succeeded in creating a parallel literary landscape, entirely different from everything else, and possessed an uncanny eye for the events of the near future. With titles like "The Atrocity Exhibition", "Rushing To Paradise", "The Day Of Creation" and "Vermilion Sands" he shows no sign of abandoning my life. Some books stay on their shelves but their initial appeal fades. J.G. Ballard remains powerful as ever.
