Doctor Brodie's Report by Jorge Luis BorgesAt the age of seventy, after a gap of twenty years, Borges returned to writing short stories. In Brodie's Report, he returned also to the style of his earlier years with its brutal realism, nightmares, and bloodshed. Many of these stories, including Unworthy and The Other Duel, are set in the macho Argentinean underworld, and even the rivalries between artists are suffused...
Labyrinths by Jorge Luis BorgesIncludes "Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius", "The Garden of Forking Paths", and "The Library of Babel", three of Borges' most famous stories. Many of the stories are from the collections Ficciones (1944) and El Aleph (1949)
The Book of Imaginary Beings by Jorge Luis BorgesIn a perfect pairing of talent, this volume blends twenty illustrations by Peter Sís with Borges's 1957 compilation of 116 "strange creatures conceived through time and space by the human imagination," from dragons and centaurs to Lewis Carroll's Cheshire Cat and the Morlocks of H. G. Wells's The Time Machine.
