NEWS: “Goodnight Stars” Withdrawn from Hugo Consideration

We recently reported that Annie Bellet’s story from The End is Now, “Goodnight Stars,” was a finalist for the Hugo Award.

As such, we’re going to leave the story online to help encourage people to still check it out: text | epub | mobi | pdf | mp3.
