You've a novice reader, are you not, OP? That's ok. But you're also a try-hard, which is not ok.

The answers to your question confused me at first. But after some thought, I see they each have their own reasons/similarities. It's just that you didn't state clearly what aspect of Borges' writing you are looking for.

"Mojo" and "Philosophical Speculative Fiction" (please don't invent genres, you suck at it) are not clear enough for good recommendations.

A simple "I liked X and enjoyed Y while reading Borges" would have given you exactly what you want. Now your recommendations are a total hit-or-miss.
