This post on the FLAVORWIRE website has an interview with Jonathan Basile, a Brooklyn author and huge fan of Jorge Luis Borges and his classic short story, “The Library of Babel.” In fact, Jonathan is such a fan that he “taught himself programming so that he could recreate Borges’ Universal Library as a website.” According the the post “the results are confounding. A true site-as-labyrinth, Basile’s creation is an attempt to write and publish every story conceivable (and inconceivable) to man.”
