JG Ballard and David Cronenberg interviewed by Mark Dery

Mark Dery has posted his 1997 interviews with two of my favorite creators of weird fiction: science fiction author JG Ballard and filmmaker David Cronenberg. Of course, Cronenberg was the director who brought Ballard's deeply disturbing novel Crash to the big screen. (That same year, I also had fun interviewing Cronenberg for the print bOING bOING, but all we talked about were the squishy oozy sounds he likes to use in his movies.) Dery archived his PDFs of the interviews on Scribd and provided background on his blog.
