March is almost here and hopefully the end of colder weather. As the sun returns to the northern hemisphere, we look to brighter days ahead. We hope our readers are safe and finding ways to be positive as the year progresses.

We have an exciting lineup for March!

Issue 130

First up, we’re releasing Issue 130 on March 1st. With cover art by JR Slattum, original fiction by RJ Taylor, Devon Mihesuah, Risa Wolf, Spencer Nitkey, Russell Nichols, and Benjamin Blattberg, non-fiction by Milton J. Davis and Linda addison, and classic fiction from Molly Tanzer and Wole Talabi, this issue promises to be one of our best. Watch for our releases at www.apex-magazine.com and stay tuned for the podcasts!

Kristi DeMeester AMA

Our March Book of the Month is Everything That’s Underneath by Kristi DeMeester. On March 3 at 1pm EST (12pm central, 10am PST, 6pm UTC), we’ll host an AMA with the author on our Discord.

In Kristi DeMeester’s transformative dark fantasy collection, Everything That’s Underneath, the author explores the places most people avoid. A hole in an abandoned lot, an illness twisting your loved one into someone you don’t recognize, lust that pushes you further and further until no one can hear your cry for help. In these 18 stories, the characters cannot escape the evil that is haunting them. They must make a choice: accept it and become part of what terrifies them the most or allow it to consume them and live in fear forever.
