Apex Magazine is a monthly science fiction, fantasy, and horror magazine featuring original, mind-bending short fiction from many of the top pros of the field.
This month we bring three outstanding stories to our dedicated readers. "The Neighborly Thing to Do" by T.J. Weyler starts as a classic Gothic tale, but a wicked twist adds a memorable dynamic. "The Widow and the Xir" by Indrapramit Das explores the pain of grief and how difficult it can be to let go of a deceased loved one. In Theodora Goss's powerful "The Rapid Advancement of Sorrow," fiction editor Catherynne M. Valente completes a three story cycle of loneliness, sorrow, and loss.
Rounding out this month's content is a nonfiction piece from Paul Jessup. Jessup lists some outstanding weird reads in his "The Top 10 Experimental Genre Books You've Never Heard Of."
Apex Magazine is edited by award-winning author and editor Catherynne M. Valente.
