I’m in this anthology…

My short story, “Dedalus and the Labyrinth” is the very first story in this collection, from Apex Publications, among what appears to be an excellent bunch of stories.

This particular work of fantasy was the first glimmer in the brain of what was going to become a science fiction/interstitial novel called MAZE that’s coming out when it comes out from Apex.
