Blog for a T-shirt–Apex Magazine subscription drive

Posted by on Oct 31, 2012 in Apex News | 0 comments

(Note from editor: Posted on behalf of Lesley Conner) Do you have blog? Do you want an Apex T-shirt? (Rhetorical question. Everybody wants an Apex T-shirt!) I can make that happen. You see, here at Apex we’re running a little subscription drive for Apex Magazine. The response has been great, but spreading the word farther, letting more people know about Apex Magazine, is always a good thing. It moves us one step closer to world domination. That’s where you and your blog come in. If you blog about the Apex Magazine subscription drive before November 10th, we’ll send you a free Apex t-shirt. All you have to do is include a link to our blog about the subscription drive,...

An Earnest Proposal: Read Some Short Fiction

One of the most common questions I am asked when I’m interviewed or cornered by a concerned reader at a convention goes something like this: “Why do you run a genre zine?” The short answer makes me sound like a virtuous soul. “Because I want to make a positive impact on the world in a tiny way.” The truth is way more complicated than that, and way less virtuous. I’ll condense the long version down for you with a series of words. Greed. Creativity. Glory. Impact. Outlet. Friendships. Experience. Maybe one day I’ll have the time to expound on the role these seven words plays in why I run a publishing company. Since we’re...

(Editor’s Note: I’m posting this dispatch on behalf of Lesley Conner) We’re a week and a half into the subscription drive for Apex Magazine. So far, it’s been amazing. I’ve heard from a lot of great people, some who have been reading Apex Magazine for a long time and wanted to grab a subscription (or renew a current subscription) while we’re offering such a great deal and others who are experiencing the magazine with new eyes. People from as close as Pennsylvania and Kentucky and as far as France, Germany and Spain. Subscribe via Weightless Books Subscribe via Apex Subscribe via Amazon But what now? Those of you who were ready, who were itching for a...

Guy Hasson’s Film Journal, Entry #8: War of the Worlds

Posted by on Oct 24, 2012 in Apex Publications Blog: Matters of SF, Fantasy, and Horror | 1 comment

Two Worlds, One People Every so often, I am starkly reminded that I live in two different worlds. One is the ‘real’ world, the regular world, the one where most of you, the readers of this blog, probably live. Everybody lives in the real world. Everybody except crazy people and… There used to be a name for those people… What are they called? It’s on the tip of my tongue… Oh, yes: Artists. In particular, actors, actors in theater and film. In my first year in the university I majored in Mathematics and took one course in Theater because I missed writing. It was a short walk between a talk with a genius who shared with me his contemplations about what multiplication...
