“Letters from Laura,” Mildred Clingerman, 1954 – Looking for a thrill, Laura purchases a trip to ancient Greece from a sleazy salesman. Once there, she realizes that the salesman has made an arrangement with the Minotaur to supply him with female sacrifices.
Comments: Read in A Treasury of Science Fiction, Volume Two. An epistolary story told by Laura to two very different audiences, her mother and best friend. Not her best piece, but perhaps interesting for themes of female sexuality and tourism (to the past).
