Another one of my Maritimes mythos stories.

A scientist who studies the season of autumn discovers something strange in Cape Breton.

This one started out extra special for me, because it was the first time my name appeared on the cover, but sometime before the issue went to the printer, the powers that be ended up taking my name off without telling me.

But at least I have an amusing story to tell about it. My almost-cover story.

A small aside: I was never really happy with the title "Autumn Burns," so, with some help from my editor and friend Helen Marshall, we decided to go with "Autumnology" instead. I think it's a better fit.

Reviews: "Autumnology" received an honourable mention in Imaginarium 2013: The Best Canadian Speculative Fiction.
