Introduction

In his introduction to this project, Jonathan Gibbs quoted Borges: ‘My preferences have dictated this book. I should like to be judged by it.’ When it comes to this Personal Anthology of short stories I should not like to be judged by it. All but two of the stories are by men. All but two are by English or North American writers. None are in translation. All the writers are white. Something is wrong here. It’s good that I am not a publisher.
