    On a day in April, just after three o'clock in the afternoon, Robert Maitland's car crashes over the concrete parapet of a high-speed highway onto the island below, where he is injured and, finally, trapped. What begins as an almost ludicrous predicament in CONCRETE ISLAND soon turns into horror as Maitland - a wickedly modern Robinson Crusoe - realizes that, despite evidence of other inhabitants, this doomed terrain has become a mirror of his own mind. Seeking the dark outer rim of the everyday, J.G. Ballard weaves private catastrophe into an intensely specular allegory. 176p.

    Richard Pearson, unemployed advertising executive and life-long rebel, is driving out of Brooklands, a motorway town on the outskirts of London. A few weeks earlier his father was fatally wounded at the Metro-Centre, a vast shopping mall in the heart of this apparently peaceful town, when a deranged mental patient opened fire on a crowd of shoppers. When he's released without charge thanks to the dubious testimony of self-styled pillars of the community, Richard suspects that there is more to his father's death than meets the eye, a more sinister element lurking behind the pristine facades of the labyrinthine mall. A gripping, dystopian de force. 280p.

Soon Markham is swept up in a campaign that spirals out of control - as the cornerstones of middle England become targets and growing panic grips the capital city.

    Best known for his novels, such as Empire of the Sun and Crash, Ballard rose to fame as the 'ideal chronicler of disturbed modernity...like Calvino...filling the empty deprived spaces of modern life with the invisible cities and the wonder world of imagination.' Equally brilliant were his devastatingly original short stories, which span nearly fifty years and reveal an unparalleled prescience so unqiue that a new word - Ballardian - had to be invented. The ninety-eight pulse-quickening surreal specimens presented in this landmark publication demonstrate Ballard's fierce imaginative energies in full-throttle apprehension of the dehumanizing horizons he so abhorred.
