Upcoming Patreon and Subscription Changes1 min read

Apex Magazine first launched in 2005. Since then, we’ve released 131 issues, 553 stories, and two-and-a-half million words of strange, shocking, surreal, beautiful fiction. When we reopened in 2020, we returned at our current price of $24/year for 6 standard issues plus the bonus issues. In order to continue to produce the magazine, support our staff, and pay our contributors professional market rates, we’re increasing our annual price in the coming weeks.

Beginning July 1, the subscription price will be increasing to $27/year on our website as well as on Weightless and everywhere else our titles are sold. This annual subscription fee is a 10% savings on the sticker price of the magazine!

For our Patrons, we will be keeping our legacy tiers as a thank you to those who have supported us over the past two years. Moving forward, new Patrons will have 3 brand new tiers to choose from. The magazine-only tier will be going up to $3/month, magazine + digital book patrons will go up to $8/month, and magazine + print book will go up to $18/month. In addition to our standard content, Patrons will continue to receive early access to the microfiction contest, as well as our exclusive workshops, interviews, features, and more from Apex editors and authors, Discord membership, and more.

To be clear, current patrons won’t have to change anything! However, as a giant thank you to anyone who joins one of our new Patreon tiers between July 1 and September 1, we’ll be sending the digital ebook edition of our excellent Best of Apex Magazine anthology as a free gift. This anthology of fantasy and science fiction published in Apex Magazine from 2011-2017 includes numerous award-nominated short stories, our readers’ Story of the Year selections, and personal favorites chosen by Apex Magazine chief editors Jason Sizemore and Lesley Conner.

To our current subscribers and patrons, thank you for supporting Apex Magazine. To our readers and fans, please consider supporting Apex moving forward so we can continue to bring you the dark and spectacular science fiction, fantasy, and horror you’ve come to rely on.
