    I guess. Borges took awhile to gain the world stage, but from the '60s on, he's had a growing influence on contemporary writers in many genres.

    Interesting points re. SF vs. respectable. When Vonnegut started, SF was a walled ghetto - he sought, and found, a wider readership. I wonder how much SF Vonnegut and Atwood read.
