A collection of science fiction short stories by British author J. G. Ballard. These tales contain distrubing themes, such as endless urban streets (The Concentration City), a missing mental asylum inhabitant who no one can remember (Minus One), a man growing younger (Mr. F. is Mr. F.), and electronics company employees working in a deserted complex (Zone of Terror). Read these and learn how the term "Ballardian" came to refer to dystopian modernity.
