(#173365) WAR FEVER. Ballard.

WAR FEVER. London: Collins, 1990. Octavo, boards. First edition. Signed on the title page by Ballard. "Fourteen stories, mainly from the magazines of the 80s, about ten of them classifiable as SF. They include 'The Secret History of World War 3,' a savagely funny piece about Ronald Regan's future third term as President; 'Dream Cargoes,' about mutant life on a polluted island; and the title story, about a war endlessly fought in a Middle Eastern city for the sake of the world's voracious news media. Spiky, hard-edged, obtuse, latter-day Ballard: as ever, he's a writer unlike any other" (Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition [1995], p. 408. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#173365).
