Each week we send a newsletter with important site updates, major Apex events, free flash fiction, and other goodies.
Apex Magazine is an online zine of fantastical fiction. We publish short stories filled with marrow and passion, works that are twisted, strange, and beautiful. Creations where secret places and dreams are put on display. We publish in two forms: an every-other-month eBook issue and a gradual release of an entire issue online over a two month period. Along with the genre short fiction, there are interviews with authors and nonfiction essays about current issues. Additionally, we produce a monthly podcast of narrated original short fiction.
We strive to entertain you with interesting, diverse, and thought-provoking fiction. Our goal is to challenge
your perceptions, rattle your beliefs, and shake you free of the expected path.
We want you to read our content and then afterwards think now
that’s only a story you’d find in Apex Magazine.
