RIP, J.G. Ballard

SF New Wave author J.G. Ballard has passed away at the age of 78.
While I haven’t and never did read a lot of his fiction, I did enjoy some of his work, and was puzzled by other pieces, which I didn’t really get. “The Assassination of Kennedy considered as a downhill motor race”, for example, is exactly what the title is, but its a phantasmagorical story. I much preferred “Billennium” and especially “Concentration City”.
Rest in Peace, Mr. Ballard.
