Anyone fond of this late Argentinian writer?

I find at least ten of his stories to be masterpieces, although i am of mixed opinion about the whole body of his work.

I particularly loved the short story "The house of Asterios". Incredible in my view Others of note include the Library of Babylon and Founes.

Borges created labyrinths with language, symbols, repetitions of forms and literary mechanisms. In his stories reality and imagination often overlap, many times in sinister ways, other times due to the complexity of the cosmos and the complexity of any individual reflection of it as well.

I think he was unique in his style, and possibly also thematology.
