(Author Rhys Hughes' tribute incorporates the elements of the surreal and dark humor that made Ballard's fiction so unique: "My tribute to J.G. Ballard who has just died... This photo cost £2.05 to create [£1 for the toy car, 85p for the firelighters stuffed into its chassis and 20p for the box of matches to ignite the wreck].")
On Sunday, the brilliant author J.G. Ballard passed away at the age of 78. Here at Omnivoracious we ran a tribute in which we wrote in part, "rewired the brains of generations of readers and writers. A member of the largely British New Wave movement of the 1960s, Ballard wrote mind-bending stories that changed reader perceptions of space and time, along with novels that dealt with every conceivable major theme of the twentieth century." Yesterday we also ran Geoff Manaugh's "spatial" appreciation of Ballard.
Here are a few of the other tributes and articles about Ballard and his work that we've found especially unique or eloquent.
