Mazes and Minotaurs
I’m assuming those big books of mazes still exist – you know, the ones with names like Amazing Ass Mazes and Limitless Labyrinths – the ones you steer your pencil down dead end corridors and back trying to solve. I had a fantastic one when I was a kid with mazes based on classic horror movies. Not actual mazes that appear in movies like The Shining, but Daedalusian imbroglios cleverly constructed within the bodies of famous horror icons. For instance, trying to get from one side of Donovan’s brain to the other, like this:
Cool, huh? Perfect for a six-year-old, and only slightly less thrilling than getting chased by a Minotaur with an axe.
Turns out I wasn’t the only one to own this fine book, since someone managed to scan their yellowed copy and put the pages online. Print these out and you too can experience the horror of getting your pencil stuck in the Blob or drawing your way out of the Wolfman’s beard.
