Sci Fi Quotes – JG Ballard

“The forest that covered the sand-bar began to thin out, giving way to the beach houses and motels of Cocoa Beach. A derelict hotel sat among the trees , its gates collapsed across the drive. Spanish moss hanging from a sign that advertised a zoo and a theme park devoted to the space age.  Through the waist-high palmettos the chromium and neon rockets rose from their stands like figures on amusement park carousels.”


From Memories of the Space Age by JG Ballard
