It’s new Apex Magazine day, which means I finally get to share our special World SF themed issue with you all. Waiting for the release of Apex Magazine Issue 76 has been especially hard because guest editor Cristina Jurado did an amazing job creating a rich and diverse issue.

This month we have new fiction by Tade Thompson (“Child, Funeral, Thief, Death”), Isabel Yap (“Find Me”), and Marian Womack(“Frozen Planet”). Our reprints are by Liu Cixin (“Mountain”) and Kuzhali Manickavel (“Six Things We Found During the Autopsy,” a reprint from The Apex Book of World SF 4). We have poetry by Anne Carly Abad and Christina Sng, and Cristina Jurado wrote our nonfiction article discussing speculative fiction in Spain. Exclusive to the subscriber/eBook edition, we have excerpts from Escape from Baghdad! By Saad Z. Hossain and Sorcerer to the Crown by Zen Cho. Charles Tan interviewed both of our excerpt authors, and we have those available online, as well as in the eBook edition.

As always, all of the original fiction, poetry, and nonfiction can be read for free on the Apex Magazine website. This month, our reprints are also free to read.

Or for only $2.99, you can purchase a nicely formatted eBook edition of Apex Magazine Issue 76 and help support the work of these amazing authors and our guest editor. EBook editions are available direct from Apex, or through one of our many vendors, such as Weightless Books, Amazon, and B&N.

Subscriptions are available on a yearly basis through either Apex or Weightless Books. Amazon provides monthly subscriptions and will deliver the mobi edition directly to your Kindle. Subscribe to Apex Magazine! Never miss an issue and support the work of our authors and editors.
