Postcards from the Inner Space

J. G. Ballard's literature tends to be attributed with a high degree of visionary precision, but the efficacy of this power of prediction is sustained by a singular voice and a tremendously important poetic dimension. This panel will explore the literary quality of J. G. Ballard's work and the totally insular position it occupies within the generic discourse of science fiction, from the standpoints of Francisco Porrúa, Ballard's first publisher in Spanish, the writers Agustín Fernández Mallo and Toby Litt - who explicitly paid tribute to Ballard in his novel Corpsing (published in Spanish as Muerte en directo) - the translator Marcial Souto, and the head of the Culture section of www.adn.es  and author of the blog La Petite Claudine, Marta Peirano.
