  1. It's good to see these round-ups, Richard. Thanks for including a link to my Ocampo review. I thought her stories were excellent, full of mysterious imagery and ideas.

    1. You're very welcome about the Ocampo link, Jacqui, and I'm glad to be reminded that you enjoyed your two introductions to her and her husband. In fact, I should try to get to another story collection of hers soon myself. Cheers!

    2. Hi Richard - just posted my review of The Secret in Their Eyes by Eduardo Sacheri (tr. John Cullen) - I loved it!

    1. Happy to hear that, Brian. However, I'm just riding on the coattails of Amateur Reader (Tom) and Roberto Bolaño respectively!

  3. Maybe next year will be all Borges for me. The disadvantage is that he has little to do with Doom. The advantage is that he is Borges.

    1. All Borges makes complete sense for the advantages and disadvantages you mention. A fine "control" for the Doom experiment in other words!
