Borges Short Stories

If you’ve ever tried to determine which Borges books contain which of his short stories, look no further – my good friend Igor Shults has painstakingly assembled a chart of which books contain which short stories.

TLDR: If you want to obtain all of his short fiction stories, you need to buy both Collected Fictions which contains nearly all of them (it claims to contain all of them, but this isn’t correct) as well as A Universal History of Iniquity.

You can download a spreadsheet showing which books contain which stories immediately below, or attempt to make sense of the following table.
