The unexplored implications of the premise remind me a bit of what's going on with the seasons in ASOIAF - I'm caught up with all the published novels and I still don't understand how it all actually works re: either planetary rotation (how could it vary enough to create seasons of completely unpredictable lengths? what would even cause that?) or how it affects food supply. They refer to having (or hoping for) more than one harvest during the autumn depicted in the series, which offers a hint, but how do they compensate for the phenomenon of a short summer followed by an incredibly long winter? Are the biological processes of plants remotely the same as in our world? And if not, how is human (and other mammalian) life otherwise apparently identical to ours?
