The new issue of Apex Magazine is out today, and it is brimming with fantastic stories. Authors Gary Kloster, Seth Dickinson, and Liz Argall bring us our original fiction in this issue. We have a feature from War Stories: New Military Science Fiction, “Enemy States” by Karin Lowachee, which is a heart wrenching story about those left behind when soldiers go off to war. Our reprint is the novella “Danceland” by Emma Bull and Will Shetterly, and is included exclusively in our subscriber/eBook editions, along with excerpts of novels by Timothy Zahn and Walter Mosley. The poetry this month was written by Amanda Lord, irving, and Marsheila Rockwell. For our nonfiction piece, Charles Tan discusses interacting in an online universe. Seth Dickinson and Jeff Ward were kind enough to join us for interviews, so take a peek into the minds of this author and artist.

As always, the original fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and interviews are available to read for free on the Apex Magazine website

Nicely formatted eBooks, including the reprint and novel excerpts, are available in PDF, mobi, and ePub formats for only $2.99 direct from Apex, or through Amazon (US), Amazon (UK), Weightless Books, or B&N.
