What would people do if they had advance notice of the world ending? “The End of the World Measured in Values of N,” an SF story by Adam-Troy Castro in the July issue of Lightspeed, answers that question. It’s perhaps more of an artfully told essay than fiction.

I’m keeping this story in mind for my personal awards nomination list. (Have to keep it ahead of the deadlines, or else the mind goes blank!)
