The world has presented author C. M. Villaescusa with interesting experiences that became the creative thread through which he weaves a fabric of fictional stories. From many decades of observing the human condition, he collates his works in "Tales from the Maze of the Mind" (published by Xlibris), an altogether encompassing anthology of diversity, values and a celebratory mark of the limitless artistic capacity of the human mind.

"Tales from the Maze of the Mind" is the author's compilation of many years of writing stories. Inspired by close friends who encouraged him to put his literary works into publication, the author finally conceded, resulting to this richly-melded reflection of half-a-century of independent occurrences, both personal and learned. It is neither a portrait of the real happening, according to Villaescusa, but a projection of his imagination. The book touches many themes from the bizarre to the fantastical. It goes from the liberal thoughts of the streets to the dark philosophy of the enclosed man. The characters, many times simultaneously the narrators, may go from the mentally-challenged to the insane intellectual. It is a repository of human portraits and their stories from which the author hopes the reader could find a point of identification or an entertaining bypass.

"These stories offer a view of reality through different kinds of consciousness,” says Villaescusa. “Every story is different and mainly seen through a lens into the mind."

Compelling and wonderfully insightful, "Tales from the Maze of the Mind" is a cornucopia of suspense, action, romance and injustice that enriches human experience and offers an opportunity for the written word to survive.
