Since 2009, Lavie Tidhar and Apex Publications have been gathering stories from around the globe, showcasing authors from Africa, Latin American, Asia, and Europe in our popular World SF series. In the first three volumes, we've published more than 50 stories of amazing speculative fiction.

The fourth volume of World SF brings us new stories, a new editor - Mahvesh Murad - and a new sleek look. Looking at the cover of the fourth volume, we decided it was time to revamp the look of the first three volumes as well.

With the release of The Apex Book of World SF 4 at the end of August, all four volumes of World SF will have new covers. Each book will have its own distinct cover, but with a similar style, giving the series a cohesive look.

And what about the new volume? The Apex Book of World SF 4? Well, for that cover you will have to wait.

What I can tell you is the cover reveal will be very soon, and with it we will have a special preorder deal that you will not want to miss.

These new covers will be released the same day as The Apex Book of World SF 4. Cover design by Sarah Anne Langton.
