About

A superb and varied collection of short stories which show J.G. Ballard at his visionary best. The settings include an American wasteland of drained swimming pools, lushest Knightsbridge, a Japanese prisoner of war camp and a suburb of Cape Kennedy with a population suffering from the bizzare obsession that they have once been astronauts. Humans who prefer the secure realities of television screens to the haphazard fictions of ordinary life, a news documentary through which we witness civil war erupting between extreme right and left in London streets; a holiday resort where the guests never check out which presents a sybaritic solution to European unemployment problems.

All of our books that a have dust wrapper are covered in clear protective, removable film and are packed professionally in bubble wrap and a box for shipping so that they reach you in perfect condition.
