    This is a collection of the works of JG Ballard who is an author most people either love of hate He is part of that now rather old New Wave of sci fi that tried to inject some literary uality into a genre that was dismissed as juvenile Along with Samuel Delany Ballard probably came closest to being accepted as a serious writer by non sci fi fans of anyone in the movementA lot of his work is strongly influenced by his childhood which was spent in a Japanese POW camp with other British civilians and was described in his autobiography Empire of the Sun and the Spielberg movie of the same name Two themes that run through his works are isolation and imprisonment There is also the interesting sense of disconnectedness from the technological world even when his stories take place in a future where humanity is exploring the stars his characters are among those left behind on the dying Earth which really sets him apart from most sci fi of any period Finally what stands out as a theme is that Ballard has what I would call an artistic eye for detail he's interested in images and tableaux which he describes in terms which can make everyday things seem extraordinary and fantastic If it is possible to write from the right side of the brain Ballard has done itI read this book either when I was in college or shortly thereafter I forget which but I had forgotten nearly every story that was in here The one exception was Build Up a Kafkaesue experiment about a man in a vast boundless cityspace who has never seen free unbounded space and dreams of flying That one stayed with me although I had forgotten some details including the disappointing punch line Ballard tacked onto the end The one I should have remembered because it is well known and talked about was Terminal Beach a story about a lonely man living on an atoll that had been used for atomic tests and his slow descent into a kind of madness Others came back to me like forgotten dreams as I read them One example of this was The Garden of Time in which a classically Gothic aristocrat and his lovely wife stave off a ravaging horde with flowers that hold time still but not indefinitely Also The Watchtowers which is a kind of comment on the ways in which the Foucauldian Panopticon is a self made trap Most of the other stories follow similar themes with varying degrees of success but I suppose this review would be incomplete without mentioning the eponymous story Chronopolis This is a story about a boy about the age Ballard was when he entered the prison camp who lives in a dying society that has abolished clocks and learns the secret of controlling people by controlling time He becomes dedicated to reviving the clocks in the part of the city which has been abandoned due to under population but ultimately finds himself in prison as a danger to society The twist ending on this one is reasonably effective but also ambiguous regarding the meaning of freedom

    I read about half of this before deciding most of the stories were pretty similar atomic annihilation sleep as a proxy for death scientific hubris etc Some of them definitely contained compelling concepts time based autocracy anti time autocracy and imagery giant birds but the bogus biology and underlying belief in historical and evolutionary determinism got me down Each of these stories seems to echo the fear of death within the broader fear of death of the world of civilizations and ecosystems reaching their end and it all just feels a bit old fashioned Like we survived the Cold War without blowing ourselves up and now we have other fears like the fear of fear also a Cold War thing obviously so where's it at JG? and the fear of lost identity or false identity Maybe that's why Phillip K Dick has currency these days than Ballard Or is Ballard's other work different?

    Great short story collection At points like Gabriel Garcia Maruez meets Ray Bradbury The one that stuck with me was about a giant who washed up on a beach on the East coast It gradually becomes a tourist attraction then as it decomposes people just lose interest and stop caring about it Seems about right Also contains a great story about a seemingly infinite underground city


  4. Jack Jack says:

    The author's death reminded me that I read this collection far back in my youth Little of it remains in memory just a few images I'll find it again sometime


  5. Charles Charles says:

    Seems that I remember liking this a lot when I read it but these days I don't remember much about it


  6. Tim Tim says:

    An interesting collection I'm not sure how I feel about some of the set ups for the stories iffy possibility? Bad sciebce? Maybe just out of date and not holding up well over time? But still very readable The author tries to take on some pretty heady ideas even if the underlying science is bad Then again it's fiction and doesn't try to do than be philosophical and entertaining And that is OK


  7. Marc Marc says:

    I've read this in my teenage years But it left no lasting impression


  8. Simon Håkansson Simon Håkansson says:

    I only read the short story of the same name in an excellent collection called 'The world treasury of science fiction '


  9. Honesty Honesty says:

    Endgame and The Garden of Time were both easily five stars The rest of the collection varies


  10. Martin DH Martin DH says:

    Read during Dewey's Readathon 2018Found a short story edition of the book Experienced it to be surrounding a really clever plot Hope I'll find the full edition soon
