J.G. Ballard on the Necessary Connection of Writers and the Exercise of Their Imaginations -- (also sales on Delany, Murphy and Hand)

"[F]or the imaginative writer, the exercise of the imagination is part of the basic process of coping with reality, just as actors need to act all the time to make up for some deficiency in their sense of themselves.... [I]f I don’t write, say on holiday, I begin to feel unsettled and uneasy, as I gather people do who are not allowed to dream."
-- J.G. Ballard in the Paris Review interview 

Today's sales:
Award-winning Grand Master Samuel Delany, Nebula Winners Pat Murphy and Elizabeth Hand (as well as Kurt Vonnegut) for $1.99
