THE KICKSTARTER WINDS DOWN
As of this update, there are 24 hours remaining. We hit our first major stretch goal of funding a bonus issue of Apex Magazine in 2021 focused on Indigenous fantasists. Allison Mills is our guest editor.
The second major stretch goal is within reach. If we hit $30,00 we will publish a second bonus issue in 2021. This one will focus on international/translated fiction and will be edited by Francesco Verso.
We’re only $2119 away from hitting the second major stretch goal!
If you feel like more translated fiction is an interesting idea, then consider hopping over to the Kickstarter and making a pledge or bumping up your pledge.
The team over at Fiyah Magazine has been on fire. They’ve planned and successfully funded a really great looking online convention. Last night they announced the nominees for the first ever Ignyte Awards. We were happy/honored/pleased that Suyi Davies Okungbowa’s “Dune Song” made the finalist list for short fiction!
The Ignyte Awards are voted on by the community. If you enjoyed “Dune Song” and deem it worthy consider heading to the Ignyte voting page and marking it as your choice for short fiction: https://theconvention.fiyahlitmag.com/the-ignyte-awards/vote/
Our Patreon is back? Well…it never went away. After the hiatus, we transitioned it to focus purely on the book side of Apex. Now that the zine is back, the zine side of the Patreon is once more online!
There are three tiers of interest for those who prefer to support the magazine via Patreon. The first is a new $2 monthly tier. The MSRP of new issues in 2021 will be $3.99 so this will handle recurring backers. There are now $7 and $17 tiers that grant you issues of the zine along with copies of Apex books.
What are some benefits of using Patreon instead of a basic subscription through our site? You’ll receive access to our patrons-only Discord server and you’ll receive a monthly discount code to the ApexBookCompany.com website.

As a child of the 80s and college kid of the 90s, this beautiful cover of The Pixie’s “Where Is My Mind” by The Motion nails me hard right in the nostalgic soft spot. I hope you enjoy it!
