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.

In the course of discovering that Devil Car exists online, I also found that it was part of a trilogy of sorts. The other two stories are Auto-de-Fé and Last of the Wild Ones.

All three revolve around the concept of artificially intelligent cars, some of whom kill their drivers and turn feral.

`Auto da Fe' was written for the original Dangerous Visions anthology, I think, which is where I read it first. `Last Of The Wild Ones' is another one I don't know, but now I think about it, Zelazny did seem to have a thing about cars.
