Tlön.

As a young person, 'Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius' captivated me because I found the Middle Earth -like quality of the imagined world enchanting. In maturity, and having lived through (and still living through) many of the exact processes Borges is describing, I now understand why he conceived it as a horror story.
