Ballard’s ‘last’ story actually published in Interzone in nineties

You’ve probably seen countless links already to The Dying Fall“, J G Ballard’s last short story, as published in The Guardian over the weekend.

What you might not have seen (and for which we can thank Warren Ellis for spreading) is that, while “The Dying Fall” is indeed Ballard’s last known piece of short fiction, The Guardian haven’t plucked it from the papers left on his desk in his last days; it was in fact originally published in long-running UK sf magazine Interzone in 1996.
