Labyrinths - Jorge Luis Borges Call them science fiction, fantasy or magical realism if you like but make sure you also call these stories wonderful! I'm already a fan of shorts stories but I'm not exactly a fan of reviewing them, mainly because there are stinkers among the gems but I found none in this collection.Considering each ones length I found each of them quite complex. The Library of Babel contains more than books it also seems to be housed in a labyrinth of hexagonal rooms with many corners. Who knows what's around the next one? There are many mazes in this set of stories and not all of them physical. Borges simplicity of words enhance the beautiful writing they create when strung together by his capable pen. He was a really nice and welcome change from some of the more name intense and flowery prose I've currently been reading.Yes, I'm a fan.
