10 Ballard, J. G.Vermilion Sands (+ review slip). 10035
Jonathan Cape: London. 1973.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Collection of linked stories. Very uncommon UK hardcover.

''from the first, his writing was influenced by the Surrealist painters and the early Pop artists, and it was soon clear he was capable of opening up new prospects for sf; in retrospect it was clear from his earliest beginnings that he might become revered (and detested) for the corrosively inescapable vision of the late twentieth-century world, which his stories seemed not so much to reflect in a distorting mirror as (alarmingly) to reflect, for the first time, without defensive evasions. As with much of his work, the impressive quality of his stories is a result of Ballard's painterly eye, as shown in his moody descriptions of landscapes. Landscape, for instance, dominates ''Studio 5, The Stars'' (February 1961 Science Fantasy), in which Ballard returned to the setting of ''Prima Belladonna'': a decaying resort, Vermilion Sands, where poets, artists and actresses pursue perverse whims (see also Wordmills). He subsequently wrote seven more stories against this background, and the series, which constitutes one of his most popular works, was collected as VERMILION SANDS (1971)'' (David Pringle & John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
