Nebula Nominee “Mr. Death” by Alix E. Harrow1 min read
As award nomination season closes, Apex Magazine is excited that “Mr. Death” by author Alix E. Harrow has been nominated for a Nebula Award. “Mr. Death”, a powerful story about parenting and grief, was published in Issue 121, our relaunch issue.
Editor-in-Chief Jason Sizemore had this to say about the story when it was published:
“Mr. Death” by Alix E. Harrow is firmly in the sub-genre category of “reaper” fiction. As is typical with Alix’s fiction, she layers her plot with emotional depth and provides a payoff that isn’t entirely expected, but wholly earned.
Alix E. Harrow is a veteran Apex author. The story “A Witch’s Guide to Escape: A Practical Compendium of Portal Fantasies,” which was published in 2018, received nominations for the Hugo Award, the Nebula Award, and the WSFA Small Press Award. In the end, it garnered a Hugo Award, a Nebula Award, and was a WSFA Award finalist, a Locus Recommended Story, the Apex Readers Choice, Ignotus Award finalist, and a Eugie Award finalist.
A former academic and adjunct, Alix E. Harrow is now a full-time writer living in Kentucky with her husband and their semi-feral kids. She is the author of Hugo Award-winning short fiction, and her debut novel, The Ten Thousand Doors of January, was a finalist for the Hugo, Nebula, and Locus Awards.

Best of luck to Mr. Death and congratulations to all the nominees!
