The seventeen pieces in ficciones demonstrate the whirlwind of borges's genius and mirror the precision and potency of his intellect and inventiveness, his piercing irony, his skepticism, and his obsession with fantasy. borges sends us on a journey into a compelling, bizarre, and profoundly resonant realm; we enter the fearful sphere of pascal's abyss, the surreal and literal labyrinth of books, and the iconography of eternal return. to enter the worlds in ficciones is to enter the mind of jorge luis borges, wherein lies heaven, hell, and everything in between.

This will appear almost simultaneously with the New Directions presentation of the Argentinian avant-garde writer, Labyrinths (page 277), and one can question whether there will be an available audience for two collections of this kind.
