Jeffrey's Ford's extraordinary new fantasy novella, The Cosmology of the Wider World, is a beast epic, a talking animal story in the vein of The Jungle Books and The Wind In The Willows; but this is no ordinary fable. The protagonist, Belius, is a minotaur, a wanderer in strange labryrinths of the mind and body, and his story features sex, drugs and a healthy dose of pyrotechnic metaphysical profundity. There's murder too, an instance of bestiality, and quite a few references to Dante's Inferno...

This novella was reprinted in two parts in Lightspeed, May and June 2012. It can also be found in the anthology Best Short Novels: 2006, edited by Jonathan Strahan.
