The Book of Fantasy 

Edited by Jorge Luis Borges, Silvina Ocampo and A. Bioy Casares

Introduced by Ursula K. Le Guin

First English language edition


The book of fantasy began one night when Jorge Luis Borges and his co-editors fell into talking about fantasies and ghost stories.  What emerges from their conversations became a goldmine of tales drawn from a wealth of literatures of the world.  

This astonishing collection of stories brings together a splendid mixture of internationally famous and lesser-known but highly accomplished writers, many of whom have been translated here for the first time.

Among the authors included are Ray Bradbury, G.K. Chesterton, Nathaniel Hawthorne, James Joyce, Edgar Allen Poe, Leo Tolstoy, Oscar Wilde, Mary Shelley, J.G. Ballard, Julio Cortázar, Lewis Carroll, Franz Kafka, Olaf Stapledon, Edith Wharton, William Butler Yeats and a score of others. 

"The Book of Fantasy" comes with a specially written introduction by Ursula K. Le Guin, twice winner of the Hugo and Nebula awards.  It is, quite simply, the finest anthology of its kind.
