For the first time in one volume, a complete collection of the acclaimed short stories by the author of Empire of the Sun, Crash, Cocaine Nights and Super-Cannes -- regarded by many as Britain's No 1 living fiction writer. With sixteen novels over four decades -- from The Drowned World in 1962 to his highly acclaimed Super-Cannes in 2000 -- J.G. Ballard is firmly established as one of Britain's most celebrated and original novelists. For all that time he has also written 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 Voices of Time, The Terminal Beach, The Day of Forever, The Venus Hunters, The Disaster Area, Vermilion Sands, Low-Flying Aircraft, Myths of the Near Future and War Fever. Now, for the first time, all of J.G. Ballard's published stories have been gathered together in one volume and set out in the order in which they were originally published, providing an unprecedented opportunity to review the career of one of Britain's greatest writers.
