Today is a milestone day for Apex Magazine. It is new magazine day and today we released our 100th issue!

I’m going to say it again because it’s just so stunning to me: today we released our 100th issue!

Wow! I’ve been the managing editor of Apex Magazine for nearly three years and to be here on issue 100, to see where we’re heading and the amazing things Jason and I are cooking up, to look to the future and see no end, but rather more amazing stories, features with incredible authors, fabulous artwork … it feels pretty damn good! So thank you to every reader, every subscriber, and every writer who has supported Apex over the years. I absolutely love the work Jason and I are doing, and I can’t wait to keep doing it for years to come.

But onto issue 100!

This month we have amazing stories by a powerhouse lineup of authors! Our original fiction this month is by Kameron Hurley and Andrea Tang. Authors Lucy A. Snyder, Carrie Laben, and Kristi DeMeester provided wonderful reprints. Our nonfiction article looks at Alien and Philosophy with a discussion with editor/contributor Jeffrey Ewing conducted by M.B. Sutherland. Andrea Johnson sat down to chat with Kameron Hurley about her story “Tumbledown,” Patreon, and one of the scariest parts of the publishing business, marketing. Russell Dickerson had the chance to talk to our fantastic cover artist for the month, Caroline Rodriguez Fuenmayor. And finally Jason Sizemore as an introspective on the past 100 issues with contributions from editors, authors, and readers that you will not want to miss.

If you head over to the Apex Magazine website right now, you can read Jason Sizemore’s editorial and “The Man in the Crimson Coat” by Andrea Tang. Additional content will be released online throughout the month, so be sure to come back often.
