It’s hard to believe, but 2019 is nearly here. And with that, comes a new batch of books published by Apex. I am extremely excited about this line up! Some are continuations of stories Apex has already published. Others come from authors new to Apex but who came with stories dark and disturbing, stories we felt were a perfect fit for the Apex catalog. All are amazing and I can’t wait to bring them to you, loyal readers.

Here’s a preview of what’s to come from Apex in 2019:

Hole in the World (novel):  Return to Brian Keene’s Lost Level with this prequel to his Lost Level series. A new group of people and new adventures, but this novel is sure to excite fans of the series. Look for it in late February to early March.

Do Not Go Quietly (anthology):  Resistance. Revolution. Standing up and demanding to have your space, your say, your right to be. An anthology edited by Jason Sizemore and Lesley Conner, Do Not Go Quietly will be available in April, 2019.

Pimp My Airship (novel): Pimp My Airship is a steamfunk adventure novel by Maurice Broaddus. It’s slated to be released in May, 2019.

Coil (novel): Part near-future scifi, part CSI-esque murder mystery, Coil by Ren Warom is a seriously twisted novel that will drag readers into a world ruled by body modifications, gangs, and a killer who strips his victims of their individuality, twisting them into grotesque works of art. Be ready to jump into Ren Warom’s world in June, 2019.

Snow Over Utopia (novel): Snow Over Utopia by Rudolfo Serna is a literary science fiction novel that takes place in a future where we have ruined the environment. Pockets of civilization have survived but humanity has been warped and twisted in such a way that it is barely recognizable. This novel is intricate and layered with prose that borders on poetry. It’s the type of novel that demands to be read, and then to be read again. You can read it in July, 2019.

Ration (novel): Cody T. Luff brings us a world dictated by lack—a lack of food and of resources. A world where no one ever has enough to fill satisfied, let alone full, and they never have—not once in their lives. What would that do to a person, a school, a society? These are the questions explored in Ration. Coming August, 2019.

The Grand Tour! (single author collection): E. Catherine Tobler is known for her magical Jackson’s Unreal Circus stories, and in 2016 Apex published The Kraken Sea, which gave readers a peek into the early years of Jackson’s and how he became the ring leader. Now Apex is thrilled to be publishing a collection of several of the circus stories. Buy your ticket in October, 2019.

Mirrorstrike (novel): Benjanun Sriduangkaew takes us back to Sirapirat in this sequel to her sci-fantasy novel Winterglass. Coming in November, 2019.
