* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Played with in "A Survey of the Works of Herbert Quain", which reviews several books from the titular (fictional) author; one of them is a collection of stories in all of which Quain has ''deliberately'' wasted a good plot turning it into a wrong direction, with the intention of making the readers believe they have discovered the better possible plot themselves.

* AwardSnub: Borges never got a Nobel prize for literature. Supposedly he was in the running, but was told not to go to Chile and meet with Augusto Pinochet. Borges not only met with Pinochet, but praised him for his tough stance on communism, and was subsequently removed from the Nobel prize list. Some called foul on this, as the prize had been awarded to authors who wrote in favor of Josef Stalin.

* FreudWasRight: "The Cult of the Phoenix" won't be any more about gay sex no matter how much people say it is. Fittingly, though, a mass literary reinterpretation like that is right out of a Borges story, making this a case of life imitating art.
