Fantastic news, everyone!  This Is Horror has seen fit to award both our e-zine AND Sing Me Your Scars for its 2015 awards season!  This Is Horror is one of a handful of highly esteemed horror “news” sites that keeps up with everything horrifying, from TV and film to podcasts to art and literature (which we knocked out of the park this year!).

Our zine received the Best Magazine of the Year 2015 award.  Jason Sizemore, our editor-in-chief, does an excellent job of summing up how we feel about this honor that we have all worked so hard to earn.

Winning Fiction Magazine of the Year is incredibly gratifying. Apex Magazine works hard to find stories that blend genres, bringing a dark flavor to scifi and fantasy, finding horror where it isn’t expected (one of the best kinds of horror, right?). Thank you to This Is Horror and its readers for letting us know we’re doing it right!

Our newest installment of Apex Voices, Damien Angelica Walters’ Sing Me Your Scars, was also awarded the honor of Best Short Story Collection of the Year 2015.  If you don’t already own her book, please add it to your bookshelf!  She responded as eloquently as always:

I was thrilled that Sing Me Your Scars was in such fine company, and I’m honored to have won. Thank you to Jason Sizemore, Lesley Conner, and Apex Publications for bringing the collection to life, and thank you, too, to the editors who originally published many of the stories. And last, but definitely not least, thank you to everyone who read and voted. Truly, the stories are only half-finished until they’re in your hands.

Thank you to all who voted for both our award-winning magazine and Damien Angelica Walters’ collection.  Without you fine people supporting us, our endeavors would be fruitless.  Our deepest appreciation goes out to all of you, our beloved readers without whom we could not exist.
