Haslam, Silas

author of History of the Land Called Uqbar, 1874, and A General History of Labyrinths. 

Fishburn and Hughes: "A fictional name, perhaps a tribute to Fanny Haslam, Borges's paternal English grandmother, who is recalled in 'Story of the Warrior and the Captive'. Borges has, on occasion, published under the name David Haslam. See Borges." (86)
