Unlimited Dream Company" is highly erotic. The most repetitive thing
he has written, no wonder. Most Ballard's characters are a bit like
Borat, they love sex and keep getting "swollen" all the time.
I can't agree that Arhtur C. Clarke is soft SF. How define hard SF? I
thought that the distance from real science makes SF hard: the closer
the harder. Of all the writers Arthur C. Clarke's predictions in
science and technology are the closest to reality. How can one be
more hard in SF?
