J. G. Ballard: 15 November 1930 - 19 April 2009

Sad news. J.G. Ballard has died of prostate cancer at the age of 78. I have to disagree with The BBC's description of Ballard as a
"Cult Author". Ballard epitomized the term "influential". Take some time to read or reread "The Atrocity Exhibition" or Ballard's autobiography, Miracles of life, which was published last year, and while you're at it, if you're male and over 40, get your prostate checked.
