it was amazing

If there's a 'Ballardian landscape' other than that of the concrete runway on a Pacific atoll or the abandoned, empty swimming pool, it must be Vermilion Sands. For me this is one of J.G. Ballard's finest works, about a surreal desert resort for the rich and outrageous. Each story is a triumph of J.G.'s imagination, contributing to -as he called it- our myths of the near future. I can imagine my future self fading away pleasantly among the villas and the bougainvilles and the dunes of this surreal place.
