Link from "The Maze Game"

The Maze Game centers on a future civilization whose members attain immortality. The few who do die are forced to entertain the immortals in a game enacted as a dance on a maze, an act that ultimately results in their deaths. The underlying question driving both site and novel is, "What does it mean to move through a maze of language?" (Glide). In effect, the work explores the notion of a visual language, one that Slattery sees as a natural outgrowth of evolutionary intellectual progress in humankind.
