Apex Magazine #15 arrives, featuring C.S.E. Cooney

Tuesday, August 17th, 2010 | Posted by John ONeill

apexmag08Apex Magazine #15 was published on August 2, featuring fiction from Theodora Goss, Nick Mamatas, a reprint by Jeff VanderMeer — and “Dogstar Men,” a short poem by Black Gate blogger C.S.E. Cooney.

This is the first issue of Apex from new editor Catherynne M. Valente; Jason Sizemore continues as the publisher. The striking cover is by Brazilian artist Priscila Santos.

We last profiled Apex in June when they announced they were re-opening to submissions.

C.S.E. Cooney’s poem “Dogstar Men” is available here. Her most recent work for Black Gate, the three-part (and suitably epic) blog opus Exploring Fantasy in Metal, begins here.

Apex Magazine #15 is available online; the complete magazine is also available in a downloadable, pay-what-you-want edition through Smashwords, and in a Kindle edition (for 99 cents). Select back issues are also available through their excellent Magazine Archive.

    the cover is absolute great, a bit in the tradition of Rene Magritte,isn’t it?

  2. Hi Francisco,

    Black Gate issues 11, 12, 13 and 14 are already available in PDF format, and we’re hard at work converting earlier issues!

    Apex accepts a wide variety of genres. This is from their Submission Guidelines:

    We want science fiction, fantasy, horror, and mash-ups of all three—the dark, weird stuff down at the bottom of your little literary heart.
