No. They are similar but not the same. The longest story in *Extraordinary
Tales* is four 5x7 pages. Both books have the same mission statement, and
are peppered with the same Borges sine qua nons: "On Cartography" and "The
Magician," I think, are two. 

*Extraordinary Tales* is better, for reasons previously stated.
