In this third anthology of modern Canadian speculative fiction, explore new worlds of alternate realities in time and space by new and established Canadian authors.

Travel to a planet where the five senses are not good enough ... watch a baseball game on Mars ... fly with Garuda, the king of birds, to see what kind of human folly he can find to amuse the gods ... visit a laundromat that can take you anywhere in space and time ... stroll through a holograph of the last forest on earth ... see if time will end with a jolt or a gradual slide.

Tesseracts3 includes works from authors Dave Duncan, Charles de Lint, Hugo and Nebula award winner William Gibson, and Margaret Atwood, winner of the Giller Prize, the Governor Generals Award and the Arthur C. Clarke Award for Science Fiction.
