J.G. Ballard R.I.P.

On Sunday British author J.G. Ballard died at 78 after a long battle with prostate cancer. Ballard was primarily considered a post-modernist sci-fi writer but his best known book was “Empire of the Sun”, a fictionalized account of his childhood in a Japanese-run prison camp in WWII-era Shanghai which Stephen Spielberg adapted into a movie in 1987 starring a young Christian Bale.
