I just want to add my own tribute to the late J.G. Ballard, who died of lung cancer over the weekend, aged 78. He was a true original, and work like "Crash" and "The Atrocity Exhibition" will remain with me always.
I've just heard that the American porn star Marilyn Chambers also died recently, aged 56. David Cronenberg's Rabid is one of my favourite horror films, and her performance was extraordinary. RIP to a troubled soul.
