His weird worlds often have, inadvertently, a science fiction flavor, and it is several of his stories that have appeared in science fiction story anthologies that I first learned about this most unusual writer. I was disappointed to see just how scattershot his work was, however, until the publication of this latest and complete translation. They are all here--the stories that introduced me to his work..."The Library of Babel" "Tlon, Uqbar, Orbius Teritus" and others. And many stories I had never heard of...or ever seen more than a mention of. It's a hefty volume, but if you like writers like Umberto Eco, or simply want doses of something other than our mundane banal reality, Borges' work, sadly and idiotically ignored for a Nobel prize, is worth a try. And this volume, the complete and definitive collection of his stories, is the one and only book you need purchase.
The book itself is beautiful for the price. Embossed, leaved covers. Yes the edges are rough because the publisher left them that way to make it look older and more sophisticated. If you don't like this flourish I'm sure every James Patterson book is cut cleanly. Otherwise, enjoy it's a great read
This volume has nice, short explanations without being overly academic.
