J G Ballard's extraordinary inventiveness and the unfailing grace and energy of his writing are triumphantly displayed in this collection of stories. The collection includes 'The Overloaded Man', 'Chronopolis' and the critically acclaimed 'The Garden of Time'. These haunting tales of pity, terror and longing, tightly plotted and firmly grounded in psychological realism, transcend classification as fantasy or science fiction; they are literature of the highest order. 'One of the few world-class British writers alive today' Literary Review
