A collection of 98 enthralling and pulse-quickening stories, spanning five decades, venerates the remarkable imagination of J. G. Ballard. With a body of work unparalleled in 20th-century literature, J. G. Ballard is recognized as one of the greatest and most prophetic writers in the world.
With the much-hailed release of The Complete Stories of J. G. Ballard, listeners now have a means to celebrate the unmatched range and mesmerizing cadences of a literary genius. Whether writing about musical orchids, human cannibalism, or the secret history of World War III, Ballard's Complete Stories evokes the hallucinations of Kafka and Borges in its ability to render modern paranoia and fantastical creations on the page.

horrid peroid references with blathering.
This was a wasted credit. Hard to listen to. Made my ears bleed. 60 hours of every bad line this guy ever penned.
Narrator was good despite the content. Some of the stories were like poorly contrived twilight zone episodes. The remainder were just rot.
Something by a writer who isn't trying to be witty and turn a bad phrase every other sentence. One that is missing dated references and awful drivel that confounds instead of relaying a thought or idea.
They took dirt and put it into a bucket. That's all I can say here because the content was poorly written. Dated.
I would have sent the manuscript back for a burning and a burial at sea. Some things should not be published. The paper could have served a more useful purpose as toilet tissue.
I think that about says it all.
A less cynical author
No. Asimov's short stories were very good.
Their choice of subject matter.
All those suffering a depressing end, i.e., many characters.
