Ficciones is comprised of seventeen short pieces of prose. The variety of the masterful storytelling changed fiction; it has never been the same since Borges opened the door to his imagination.

Borges writes a book review of a book that has never been written. There are imaginary encyclopedias, detective stories, labyrinths and a library of the universe. A fabulous story of a conspirator who plans to overtake the gang, but he only plots his own demise. A man who forgets everything he has ever experienced.

These short stories touch a part of your brain typically dormant, changing the boundaries of literature.

Hernan No he didn´t, probably because of his extremly conservative, right wing, antiperonist ideology.
