10 tuits de @MagicRealismBot

Por Kevin Sloan
It was originally called BorgesBot, but we  found that the particular flavour of dry, scholarly magic that Borges weaves was a bit restrictive (also, the metafictive element was hard to pull off in 140 characters). So we widened it to cover more colourful terrain – glass cathedrals, swimming pools filled with clocks, a tsarina who falls in love with time. In the end, it became a blend of Borges with Calvino, Eco, García Márquez and Allende, together with a little bit of Lewis Carroll, C. S. Lewis, Philip Pullman and (a childhood favourite of mine) Richard Hughes.---Vía
