“The Man on the Threshold” (1952)

Creators

Jorge Luis Borges (writer).

Extent

Read in Sun Axelson’s Swedish translation.

Commentary

The most interesting thing about it is the paragraph of prologue referencing (real) Bioy Casares, a trip to London, a mysterious dagger etc. This opening, and the title, would have been an easy fit for M. R. James or H. P. Lovecraft.
