Jeffrey Ford is a writer through to the marrow of his bones and right now his energy and drive is producing some of the most interesting work the genre has to offer. I encourage you to read his brilliant blog on a regular basis!
Meantime a new novella by Ford is released by PS Publishing and features an introduction by Jeff Vandermeer. 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 labyrinths 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 is a limited edition issued in two states - 500 paperback copies signed by Ford (£10.00) and 200 hardcover copies signed by both Ford and Vandermeer (£25.00).
