Amphibious Fictions

This could be a viable chapter topic.  I am impressed by the beautiful story by Julio Cortázar called Axolotl, about a man’s encounter with a larval newt at an aquarium and his sudden… shall we call it teleportation?… behind the glass into an axolotl.  Reminiscent of Kafka, Capek, and Flusser, this is a great story about metamorphosis and inter-species sympathies and barriers.
