BALLARD, J. G.

Rare books by J. G. Ballard, including first editions, signed first edition, and copies in fine bindings of The Drowned World, Crash, and Empire of the Sun. 

J G Ballard (1930-2009) was a popular English Science Fiction writer who wrote across several mediums including novels, short stories and essays.
While Empire of the Sun is perhaps his most commercially accessible novel, many of his works use an unusual narrative and explore thematically curious ideas within the New Wave movement.
