Supercontext: The Terminal Beach by J. G. Ballard

Thanks to our Co-producer Miriam Meaney for this week’s topic!

This 1964 collection of short science fiction stories shows a writer in conflict with his own genre in the wake of horrible family tragedy. We discuss Ballard’s interest in psychological inner space and speculative fiction to better understand his role in the history of literature.
