Is anyone familiar with his work? No one I talk to here in the States seems to know who he is, but I suppose he is more well in Britain. I've read The Drowned World, High Rise, Unlimited Dream Company, Running Wild, and I'm currently in the middle of Millenium People, which I belive is his most recent work. I'm planning on reading Crash, which was made into a movie back in 1996 that I haven't seen, over the summer.

Does anyone have any suggestions, or know of any good Ballard websites?

I'm reading Empire of the Sun at the moment :)

Ohh cool, I've seen the movie and I quite liked it. Is the book interesting?

I preferred his short stories to his novels. I think there is a "Best Of" collection.
