Telling the Bees

by Emma K. Leadley

In the near-future, two strangers interrupt Sarah’s idyllic rural existence, confronting her with knowledge of a life she has entirely forgotten, insisting she’s a missing part of their hivemind. Their appearance leads her to an abandoned beehive and the strange, transparent cube that lies within. The cube contains memories, that much is certain, but are they her memories? 

When corporate soldiers invade her home, Sarah is forced to accept that something is going on and that these two strangers – Brea and Blake – know far more about it than she does. Her only option is to decode the cube, reclaim her memories, and rediscover a life she has tried so hard to avoid. But where exactly will that leave her, and why did she run from it in the first place?  

“An enthralling and unnerving tale from a writer to watch.” – Gareth L. Powell

“A pacy and exciting tale of memory, love and what you’d do to protect what it means to be human. Recommended.” – Stewart Hotston 

"A smart and fast-paced near future thriller, imbued with reflections on corporate power, emotional bonding and the philosophy of mind... Telling the Bees is cracking entertainment too... The book is a masterclass in concentrated storytelling." – ParSec Magazine

“A hugely enjoyable read that delivers a fascinating story and interesting characters…. Very impressive and I hope we see more of Leadley’s work in the future. Highly recommended!” – Runalong The Shelves

“…we’re taken on a fast-paced adventure story with an evil corporation, a ruthless henchman thereof, family troubles and a solid Science Fiction theme. What more could you ask? Telling The Bees is another success in the ongoing history of Newcon Press novellas.” – SFCrowsnest

Telling the Bees is available as an A5 paperback and an ebook, and has been paired with David Gullen's The Blackhart Blades in a special edition Double Novella hardback, signed by both authors and limited to just 50 numbered copies.
