Scanned... The Drought





J.G.Ballard is a writer whose canon of work I would love to have read but haven't. I picked up this book in a charity shop for 59p (which wasn't far off the 80p it cost new back in 1978)... as a result of the cover picture, the compelling blurb on the back and a genuine desire to read more of his sci-fi stuff.

I find the main theme of the book - the ramifications that come from a lack of water - to be wonderfully up-to-date for now, especially when you consider "the great Pacific garbage patch"... and acknowledge the need to make the time to read it.
