REVIEW Myths of the Near Future

SUMMARY â Myths of the Near Future A collection of ten short stories originally written for magazines such as Time Out in th. Four stars overall some five star stories some three star onesThe first story s opening paragraph packs a light aircraft a terminal beach and a string of abandoned motels into the space of three sentences and it s so close to Ballardian self parody that I had to laugh But I kept reading all the same because I m a sucker for Ballard and inevitably the story in uestion turned out to be superbThe uality of the other stories varies of course and sometimes is hard to pin down Motel Architecture unfolds like an Edogawa Rampo nightmare but then inexplicably catastrophically pisses itself away in the last couple of pages Theatre Of War feels laboured and lumbering but becomes than the sum of its parts The Smile springs its trap beautifully and The Dead Time is simply mind blowingOn the strength of this collection it s clear that Ballard s true genius was for novels rather than short stories But at their best his shorts are still better than almost any other writer s I can think of
