The BLFUfer’s Guide To…

THE WOOD BEE QUEEN
by Edward Cox

Ebbie Wren has a dead end job, in a dead end town and is in love with a girl who thinks he’s boring. At best. His only regular confidante is a homeless woman who dies and leaves him with an empty bag and a quest to do the impossible. Thus the story begins. 

 

The prose is beautiful and evocative, combining hints of Neil Gaiman, Diana Wynne Jones and Haruki Murakami. Ed Cox successfully weaves together the idea of overlapping other-worldly realms, a here-to-there-and-back-again quest and an introverted every-man lead with a cast of female characters who are as villainous, deceitful and heroic as they need to be. A genuine pleasure to read.
