J.G. Ballard:
Science Fiction Technology and Ideas
James Graham (J.G.) Ballard (b. 1930 - d. 2009) was born in Shanghai; this excellent British writer spent several years in an internment camp in Japan during WWII. He writes "I don't think you can go through the experience of war without one's perceptions of the world being forever changed. The reassuring stage set that everyday reality in the suburban west presents to us is torn down; you see the ragged scaffolding, and then you see the truth beyond that, and it can be a frightening experience."
