Requiescat in Pace J G Ballard


Visionary Sci-Fi author James Graham Ballard has died at the age of 78 after a long battle with prostate cancer.

Ballard was well known for both his autobiographical novels and also for his dystopian and often brutal writings too. Several of his works were made into films, including Empire of the Sun (loosely based on Ballard’s own experiences during the Second World War) and most notoriously the brutal, erotic Crash.
