As far as I know, today is a first for Apex Publications! Instead of releasing one new book for you to read and enjoy, today we have two! That's right! Today is the official release day for both Do Not Go Quietly edited by Jason Sizemore and Lesley Conner AND Pimp My Airship by Maurice Broaddus.

Do Not Go Quietly is an anthology of victory in defiance. It includes stories by Brooke Bolander, Sarah Pinsker, John Hornor Jacobs, Fran Wilde, Rich Larson, and so many more. These stories are filled with anger, resistance, and hope!

Do Not Go Quietly is an anthology of science fiction and fantasy short stories about those who resist. Within this anthology, we will chronicle the fight for what is just and right, and what that means: from leading revolutions to the simple act of saying “No.”

Resistance can be a small act of everyday defiance. And other times, resistance means massive movements that topple governments and become iconic historical moments. Either way, there is power in these acts, and the contributors in Do Not Go Quietly will harness that power to shake our readers to the core. We are subordinates to a power base that is actively working to solidify its grip on the world. Now is the time to stand up and raise your voice and tell the world that enough is enough!

Get a taste of the stories within this collection by reading "Face" by Veronica Brush in the April issue of Apex Magazine.

Andrew Reising from Wild Speculation said that Do Not Go Quietly is " an excellent anthology." You can read his full review here

Pimp My Airship by Maurice Broaddus takes the theme of resistance and revolution, and views it through a lens of steamfunk and alternate history.

Warning: Don't believe the hype!

All the poet called Sleepy wants to do is spit his verses, smoke chiba, and stay off the COP’s radar—all of which becomes impossible once he encounters a professional protestor known as (120 Degrees of) Knowledge Allah. They soon find themselves on the wrong side of local authorities and have to elude the powers that be.

When young heiress Sophine Jefferson’s father is murdered, the careful life she’d been constructing for herself tumbles around her. She’s quickly drawn into a web of intrigue, politics and airships, joining with Sleepy and Knowledge Allah in a fight for their freedom. Chased from one end of a retro-fitted Indianapolis to the other, they encounter outlaws, the occasional circus, possibly a medium, and more outlaws. They find themselves in a battle much larger than they imagined: a battle for control of the country and the soul of their people.

The revolution will not be televised!

Paul's Picks called Pimp My Airship "a very good character-driven steampunk novel filled with gangsters, greed, and all means of gluttony. " You can read the full review here.
