The anthology editors John J Adams and Hugh Howey have generously made my Hugo Award nominated story free online. You can read it online in text or download the format of your choice (including the audio). Click Here to read it or download. The story will also be in the Hugo Nominations packet.
If you enjoy the story, or just love apocalyptic and post apocalyptic fiction, I would urge people to get the whole series. There are many fantastic authors in these anthologies, all of us writing a huge range of different world-endings and situations. Click Here for more information and how to buy the full anthologies.

Final note, comments will be closed on this post. I appreciate all the supportive things people have said over the last terrible week, but I’ve got a book to finish and I need to just move on. I hope I’ve said my piece and made it clear how I feel about this whole mess. I hope everyone who is able to will read as many of the nominated works as they can and vote, and I hope that this weird rift in fandom will be healed. Mary Robinette Kowal and George RR Martin have said very kind, smart things about it all. I urge people to go read the entirety of what GRRM has had to say. He put on a little school about the Hugos and why they matter.
