it was amazing
Read in January, 2011

From the Borges I have been acquainted with thus far, the use of fantasy, among many other devices, creates fiction of infinite substance and depth that leaves one speechless. This collection does just that.

My favorites would be:

"The Other", which draws inspiration from Dostoevsky's "The Double", "There Are More Things", "The Mirror and the Mask", and "The Book of Sand".
