(cover image by Leo Seta on Flickr, Creative Commons)Kate is a graduate student in biology, just trying to make it as a woman in science, racking up the publications and field trips, hoping one day to make a name for herself. But after the plane carrying her and other researchers crashes in the Arctic, she finds herself among the most amazing landscapes, and animals that talk to her and tell her things no biologist could ever know, but no way to publish or report on a single thing.

Whats a scientist to do?Reviews:Jerome Stueart opens the volume with a whimsical tale about Yukon researchers who discover the polar bears and lemmings around them can not only talk but are researching them.–Carl Hays, Booklist“A stranded research team spends their time in the Arctic interviewing a group of lemmings who, in turn, are studying their predators in Jerome Stueart’s eerie Lemmings in the Third Year…” ––Library Journal“Lemmings in the Third Year by Jerome Stueart – in which intelligent lemmings are recruited to help in scientific research, into the feeding habits of owls, feeding on lemmings.

A tongue-in-cheek story with the immortal line in response to a lemming gleefully postulating the exhilaration of being scooped into an owl’s talons: “I underestimate their death wish.”… Tesseracts Nine, continues the great Canadian speculative fiction anthology series, with a wonderful mix of stories…. Kudos to both Hopkinson and Ryman, for piecing together a stem-to-stern, satisfying read.”—Yet Another Book Review“Tesseracts 9 starts out with a strong run of stories. The opening story, “Lemmings in the Third Year” by Jerome Stueart is an unusual mix of humour and pathos, handled with a light touch and no shortage of feeling.

A small group of scientists has been stranded in an alternate version of the Arctic- in this reality, the animals all speak…. Tesseracts Nine is a solid collection of short sf works.”– James Schellenberg, Challenging DestinyJerome Stueart’s “Lemmings in the Third Year” is a funny piece about a researcher marooned among talking animals. —Speculative Literature Foundation“…Jerome Stueart’s “Lemmings in the Third Year” manages to be both laugh-out-loud funny and thoughtful, almost painful in this tale of strange talking animals and the scientific method.”–Sarah Meador, Rambles: a Cultural Arts MagazineFavorite short story read this year?
