Entre los cuentos que aquí se reúnen hay algunos de corte policial como “La muerte y l. a. brújula”, l. a. historia de un  detective que investiga el asesinato de un rabino; otros sobre libros imaginarios como “Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius”, una extraordinaria reflexión sobre l. a. literatura y su influencia en el mundo físico;  y muchos pertenecientes al género fantástico como “El Sur”, acaso su mejor relato, en palabras del mismo autor.

Fascinante y sorprendente, Ficciones le brinda al lector un mundo de reflexiones sobre las convenciones de lectura y el modo de entender l. a. realidad.
