    Abstract:
    This chapter focuses on three early narratives by J.G. Ballard and consider how Ballard’s near-future landscapes emerge from a collision of various artistic and literary forces. It argues that by fusing perspectives in visual art with science fictional motifs, Ballard's early narratives produced socio-political messages which challenged literary orthodoxies during the late 1950s and early 1960s.
