The October issue of Apex Magazine is now available.
Apex is a magazine of Dark Fiction, publishing science fiction, fantasy, horror, and “mash-ups of all three.” Single issue price is $2.99, and they are available in ePub/PDF/LIT/PDB/ LRF/mobi/RB/prc formats, which is more formats than I knew existed. A lot more, if I’m honest about it.
They have an October Financial Goal meter right on the website, so you can see exactly how your purchase impacts the bottom line, which is fairly gratifying. If I did that, I’d have to have a separate meter for the uncontrolled pulp purchases currently depleting the Black Gate bank account. Stupid eBay.
Original fiction this issue is from Ian Tregillis and Brenda Stokes Barron, and there’s a special reprint by Ekaterina Sedia. Poetry is by Rose Lemberg and Elizabeth McClellan.
Their September issue apparently snuck past us, but we did profile August. So we’re not completely asleep.
Apex Magazine is edited by the lovely and tireless Catherynne M. Valente.
