J.G. Ballard, 1930-2009

J.G. Ballard has died. Tributes and obituaries are linked to here. Obits in the mainstream press from within SF: the FT's, by Christopher Priest, and the Guardian's, by David Pringle, [and The Independent, by John Clute.]

Si monumentum requiris, circumspice. Ballard discovered something of the world we still live in.



I just read the FT and Guardian obits, using the links on your blog. Thanks for those links. Both articles are excellent, they complement each other, and they pack an enormous amount of information and opinion into two small spaces. I hope that many people read them, and then go on to the works they have not yet read. I will do just that.
