Format: Paperback
I recently dug up an old 1976 paperback copy of this slim 158 page book. WOW!!! This book has time travel, parallel universes, other dimensions, aliens, true and obscure historical facts, secret societies, religion, philosophy, PHEW!!! Although I have been aware of Avram Davidson since the 60's, it has taken me all this time to really discover and appreciate this writer. You actually have to take the time to read every word and sentence and paragraph to follow a Davidson story and don't feel bad if you have to go back to reread sections. I regret that he has passed away but I am grateful there is so much of his work available to us. You can't really classify Avram Davidson's work, it is unique. Davidson is one of those writers with the ability to induce an altered state of consciousness in the reader through the power of words and the use of language. "Masters of the Maze" does just that. As the book opened, I didn't know what was going on or who the protagonist even was. I was drawn into the subtle and cleverly woven tapestry of this novel in spite of myself and continuously surprised. No cliches here. If you want to give your gray cells a workout, this one is a delight!

This story has a writing style that is unusual for Avram. The characters remind you of how Assimov's main characters always are(not to down play assimov here): intellectual, "good show old boy"ish. Its a bizarre story, but not the kind that creeps you out or assults your sense of reality. It does deal with a different reality, sure, but you don't get sucked into that particular part fo the book. What sucks you in is the rapid change from character to character that makes an increadibly large idea somewhat understandable. The only short coming of the book is that it has this expansive idea of the maze and what its connected to(to not ruin anything for you), but its a short book. Avram could have written A LOT more and dazzled us. Regardless its still a story that brings you into its world and makes you forget yours.

The 2 previous reviewers must live in a parallel universe to me. Now I must admit that I had to give up reading half way through the book, I just couldn't take it anymore. I am a huge sci fi fan and read a large number of books every year, and it is fairly rare for me not to be able to finish a book. It started out boring on page 1, and went down hill from there. If it wasn't for the little story blurb on Amazon I probably wouldn't even know what was going on at all in the story. Maybe it got better in the second half, but even the Supreme Court would consider it cruel and inhuman punishment to make someone read it to get there. I really can't give you an intellectual analysis of the book, because I have no idea where it began of where it was going.
