Apex Magazine is an online prose and poetry magazine of science fiction, fantasy, horror, and mash-ups of all three. Works full of marrow and passion, stories that are twisted, strange, and beautiful. Creations where secret places and dreams are put on display.
Each month we bring you a mix of originals and reprints, interspersed with interviews and nonfiction. We have published many of the top short form writers working today: Mary Robinette Kowal, Saladin Ahmed, Genevieve Valentine, Amal El-Mohtar, Forrest Aguirre, Nick Matamas, Theodora Goss, Nalo Hopkinson, Eugie Foster, Cat Rambo, Jeff VanderMeer, Seanan McGuire, and Jennifer Pelland. And we’ve also presented the first professional work of amazing new writers such as Indrapramit Das, T.J. Weyler, Kathryn Weaver, Kelly Barnhill, Douglas F. Warrick, and Jeremy R. Butler.
Apex Magazine received a Best Semiprozine Hugo nomination in 2012 and 2013. We placed two stories in the 2010 Nebula Award category of Best Short Story and another in 2013. Nearly a dozen stories have been selected for the annual Year’s Best anthologies over the past three years..
A new issue is posted and placed on sale the first Tuesday of every month. Content can be read for free via the website. Alternatively, annual subscriptions are available and all our issues can be purchased in single issue formats (ePub/mobi/PDF or from the Kindle and Nook stores–these versions contain exclusive content).
