(September 2009) Stopping at Slowyear   Author Frederik Pohl Country United States Language English Genre(s) Science fiction novel Publication date 1991 Media type Print (Hardback & Paperback) Pages 150 pp ISBN 0-553-29487-3 OCLC Number 25808833 Stopping at Slowyear is a 1991 science fiction novel by Frederik Pohl. Plot summary Stopping at Slowyear tells the story of an interstellar cargo vessel which runs between out-of-the-way worlds, as it visits a planet called Slowyear after its 19-year-long revolution around its star. The crew explore the local culture and find several odd customs. Among these is of a sort of death lottery as a punishment for crimes. If someone commits a crime, they are sentenced to take a pill, which depending on the severity of the infraction will have a different probability of being lethal poison. Slowyear's principal industry is raising sheep. During their isolation, their sheep have developed a form of scrapie which is lethal to humans without immunity, such as the crew of the interstellar cargo ship. The crew die from the disease and the story ends. Stopping at Slowyear is interesting in that it addressed prion diseases years before public awareness of mad cow disease was widespread. v · d · eNovels by Frederik Pohl Undersea Trilogy (with Jack Williamson) Undersea Quest (1954)  • Undersea Fleet (1956)  • Undersea City (1958) Heechee series Gateway (1977)  • Beyond the Blue Event Horizon (1980)  • Heechee Rendezvous (1984)  • Annals of the Heechee (1987)  • The Gateway Trip (1990) The Boy Who Would Live Forever: A Novel of Gateway (2004) Eschaton trilogy The Other End of Time (1996)  • The Siege of Eternity (1997)  • The Far Shore of Time (1999) Mars series Man Plus (1976)  • Mars Plus (1994) (with Thomas T.
