    Dear Michael,

    I am curious as to whether you have yet read the newly translated Kalpa Imperial by Angأ©lica Gorodischer? This book has been getting a lot of praise at the moment and was featured at Fantastic Metropolis, which you of course co-edit. I would love to hear any opinion you might have on the work.

    I suppose on a somewhat related topic, I don't believe I've ever read any of your thoughts on writers such as Kafka, Borges or Calvino. Gabe Mesa, a person who I have great respect for, groups these three together in his interview with Gorodischer, and I am slightly puzzled as to why these writers are so often lumped together. I haven't read enough Calvino to have a firm opinion on him, but I view Borges and Kafka as very different writers. I have a great deal of respect for Borges, but his writing has always seemed too cold and clinical for me not to feel somehow distanced when I read him. I feel Kafka's writing to be more personal and altogether more real. I'd be interested to hear where you stand.

    Best regards,
