Writer J. Robert Lennon presents us with an engaging maze of story—move left, right, up, down, and find a new twist with each read.
I originally wanted to create a story, or cluster of stories, in the form of a “word search” puzzle, with story elements as “letters,” that invited the reader/player to find contiguous narratives within the grid. But then I wondered if I could make every single node part of a story. This is the result. Every column reads as a story from top to bottom; every row reads as a story from left to right (except for one, which reads right to left, just for kicks.) Readers/players may also find a few diagonal vignettes, and are invited to mix and match elements as they see fit. The whole can even be printed out, cut up, and rearranged.
