The Best Short Stories of JG Ballard A broad spectrum of Ballard’s capabilitiesOriginally published at Fantasy LiteratureThe Best Short Stories of JG Ballard 1979 was published in 1977 in the UK and 1978 in the US It contains a few stories from JG Ballard’s earlier conventional SF phase in the late 1950s his most productive and lyrical phase in the early and mid 1960s and a small sampling of his experimental ‘condensed novel’ phase of the late 1960searly 1970s The stories are taken from these collections The Voices of Time 1962 Billennium 1962 Passport to Eternity 1963 The Terminal Beach 1964 The Atrocity Exhibition 1970 and Vermilion Sands 1971The stories themselves are “Concentration City” 1956 “Manhole 69” 1957 “Chronopolis” 1960 “The Voices of Time” 1960 “Deep End” 1960 “The Overloaded Man” 1961 “Billennium” 1961 “The Garden of Time” 1961 “Thirteen for Centaurus” 1961 “The Subliminal Man” 1961 “The Cage of Sand” 1962 “End Game” 1963 “The Drowned Giant” 1964 “The Terminal Beach” 1963 “The Cloud Sculptors of Coral D” 1966 “The Assassination of JFK Considered as a Downhill Motor Race” 1965 “The Atrocity Exhibition” 1966 “Plan for the Assassination of Jacueline Kennedy” 1967 and “Why I Want to Fuck Ronald Reagan” 1968In The Best Short Stories of JG Ballard I found his earlier stories to be conventional than in his later collections and while still interesting lacking that distinctive Ballardian lyrical and thematic style namely “Concentration City” 1956 “Manhole 69” 1957 “The Overloaded Man” 1961 “Billennium” 1961 “Thirteen for Centaurus” 1961 and “The Subliminal Man” 1961 Interestingly both “Concentration City” and “Billennium” are about impossibly overpopulated future cities a direct contrast to Ballard’s later obsession with solitary characters lost in desolate deserted cities space launch sites jungles etc The other stories from that period didn’t really leave much of an impression on me“Chronopolis” 1960 “The Voices of Time” 1960 “The Garden of Time” 1961 and “The Cage of Sand” 1962 were the standout stories that do not overlap with his collection The Terminal Beach and contain the most classic Ballardian themes of entropy melancholy time coming to a halt as the past merges with the present and future lonely couples obsessed eccentrics deserted hotels abandoned launch sites empty swimming pools strange and pointless scientific experiments dead astronauts orbiting space forever and the moribund US space programFinally The Best Short Stories of JG Ballard includes four bizarre ‘condensed novels’ from Ballard’s controversial collection The Atrocity Exhibition 1970 “The Assassination of JFK Considered as a Downhill Motor Race” 1965 “The Atrocity Exhibition” 1966 “Plan for the Assassination of Jacueline Kennedy” 1967 and “Why I Want to Fuck Ronald Reagan” 1968 From the titles alone you know they are not your normal subject matter In fact the first US edition was destroyed by publisher Nelson Doubleday due to concerns about lawsuits from celebrities mentioned as well as general concerns over obscenity That of course made the few remaining copies extremely valuable and with most such cases makes readers even interested Eventually US publisher Grove Press took the plunge and published it in 1972 as Love and Napalm Export USAInspired by William S Burroughs these stories are fragmented bizarre experimental and explore the unstable main character’s twisted attempts to come to grips with major public events of that era such as Marilyn Monroe’s suicide the Cold War and space race between the US and USSR and most of all the assassination of John F Kennedy Honestly it’s hard to really grasp what Ballard intended with these stories as they defy any conventional storytelling standards They certainly explore his patented ‘inner space’ which often shapes the external environment but there isn’t much pleasure to be derived from reading them now Basically they’re of historical interest now as experimental writing from that period but not much some fans may disagree of courseOverall I think The Best Short Stories of JG Ballard is a good sampling of three distinct phases of Ballard’s writing his earlier conventional SF period his most lyrical and distinctive middle period and his later experimental period In that sense it is a convenient way to trace his development as a writer However as I think his best and most enduring short work comes from his middle period I would recommend The Terminal Beach and Vermilion Sands which contain the bulk of his best most memorable stories Of course if you are a dedicated completist then the only way to go is with the massive The Complete Stories of JG Ballard which itself has some notable omissionsFinally it’s worth noting that after the 1984 publication of Ballard’s autobiographical novel Empire of the Sun and the 1987 film version by Steven Spielberg he suddenly found himself in the limelight and enjoying much mainstream attention and went on to a very prolific writing phase which produced a number of notable mainstream novels none of which I’ve read such as Running Wild 1988 The Kindness of Women 1991 Rushing to Paradise 1994 Cocaine Nights 1996 Super Cannes 2000 Millennium People 2003 and Kingdom Come 2006
