Did you know that indeed C. S. Lewis was the the prime inspiration behind Jorge Luis Borges - and that BorgesĀ“ writings was discovered by Roger Caillois and introduced to Europe.

Jorge Luis Borges cried when his anglican mother read C. S. Lewis' science fiction trilogy aloud, because as he said, I understand why he wrote this.

Furthermore, C. S. Lewis got most of his inspiration from Tolkien and G. K. Chesterton. And Roger Caillois was inspired by Johan Huizinga, who again was inspired by Friedrich Schiller.

Funny little world, isn't it.
