She spends her days pestering book reviewers, proofreading, wrangling slush, doling out contracts, and chatting about books, writing, and anything else that crosses her mind on the @ApexBookCompany Twitter account. Most of her nights are spent with a good book and a glass of wine. Her alternative history horror novel, The Weight of Chains, was published by Sinister Grin Press. To discover all her secrets follow her on Twitter at @LesleyConner.

A new year is here and so many of us are happy to have a fresh start, but before we close the book on 2017 once and for all we need you – the Apex Magazine readers – to select your favorite story from the past year!

Since 2012 we have opened up the polls and sent out the call, giving the readers the power to bestow one lucky author the title of Apex Magazine Story of the Year. Past winners include Katharine E.K. Duckett, Alethea Kontis, Brian Trent, Marie Vibbert, and Samuel Marzioli.

We published more than 30 original stories in 2017, so we know choosing just one would be nearly impossible. For that reason, you can select up to three stories. Voting will remain open until January 22nd. Later that week, we will announce the winner!

You can vote for up to three stories. Each person can votes only once. Use the form below to cast your vote!
