Abstract:

A modern fable based on the labyrinths created by us all Belius has led a peaceful if not uneventful existence until now, as far as minotaurs & rsquo; lives go. He mostly keeps to his house, avoiding anyone outside of his family. Despite his human parents & rsquo; efforts to shield him from the potential hysteria of the townspeople, Belius hears about something beyond his home & rsquo;s walls, even beyond the town itself & mdash;something called the Wider World. He decides to explore this strange place where the possibilities far outnumber those of the mundane real world. Here, Belius has a chance to be the minotaur he has always wanted to be. He is joined by Vashti the owl and Pezimote the tortoise, creatures that provide the philosophical guidance he will need if he is to complete his physical and metaphysical journey. From World Fantasy Award winner Jeffrey Ford, The Cosmology of the Wider World is about the hopes, dreams, and visions we create for ourselves. This ebook includes an introduction by Jeff VanderMeer.
