Lately, I can't seem to finish shit so I took break from my usual reading material.. picked up some short sci-fi stories, namely from J.G. Ballard and James Blish. I enjoyed Ballard's "Billenium". It's a very short story (probably published in a magazine). The story isn't fleshed out but it's a thought provoking (if depressing) look into the effects of overpopulation.
I'm just now starting on Common Time (Blish). Anyone familiar with these writers?
I've never read but seems like a good idea reading short stories. I may even check out those ones you mentioned. Struggling to read yet having the time to read is not great.
I enjoyed reading GK Chesterton's Father Brown mysteries as short stories, if you're interested Svart.
