Episode 13
Title: The Last World of Mr. Goddard
Author: J.G. Ballard
Year: 1967
Featuring: Ruiz Tremello & Marguerite

Ruiz Tremello & Marguerite are in Colboclonk, Belgium, and discussing J.G. Ballard's 1967 short story, "The Last World of Mr. Goddard". The story concerns a creepy old man who wants to know everyone's business at all times!

This story was found via J.G. Ballard's "The Day of Forever" short story collection, an eclectic series of tales that Ruiz found occasionally plodding, often  delightful, and ultimately enjoyable if a bit forgettable.

J.G. Ballard (1930-2009) was a British writer best known for the semi-autobiographical "Empire of the Sun", as well as his many Science Fiction & Post-Apocalyptic novels such as "The Drowned World" and "The Wind from Nowhere". Everett Book Club enjoys his works, and thinks that you should read them, and also everything else. Please always read, keep reading!
