It’s been another busy week at the Apex offices. Our wonderful bloggers have brought us more fantastic March Noir posts, discussing everything from the visuals of film noir to the history of the genre. What Makes You Die by Tom Piccirilli has been officially released, and we announced increased pay for nonfiction, reprints, and artwork in Apex Magazine. Also, you may have noticed that our website is peppier. That would be because we’ve moved to a dedicated server.

If you missed any of our great posts this week, now would be the time to catch up.
