The news has just been released that JG Ballard died this morning. It was no secret that he was ill and that he wasn't going to get better, but it's still very sad news. A giant has passed.

You're in good company then, as I've read that George R. R. Martin and Neil Gaiman count him as a big influence on them too.

By the way, I discovered that Devil Car is available to be read online:

I haven't read a lot of Martin - although I think `Sandkings' is one of the best stories ever written. And I haven't read a lot of Gaiman either - although I loved American Gods with a passion. Thanks for the link; I'll sit and give that a read when I get time.
