Ballard's 'The Drowned World' is often considered to be a form of proto-Climate Fiction. This introduction to the work, taken from Axel Goodbody's and Adeline Johns-Putra's excellent Cli-Fi reader from Peter Lang, explores how Ballard's work both predates but encodes key components of what we now recognise as Climate fiction.
