November 1st is here and it is a BIG month here at Apex! First, it is new Apex Magazine day! This month we have four original short stories by four phenomenal women: E. Catherine Tobler, Onu-Okpara Chiamaka, Natalia Theodoridou, and Erica L. Satifka. Our poetry is by Tiffany Midge and John Paul Davies. We have a reprint of “Shadow” by Tade Thompson. And if that isn’t enough, we have an excerpt from Tade’s novel Rosewater, which comes out through Apex Book Company later this month (preorders are open now). Andrea Johnson talks with E. Catherine Tobler about her story “Every Winter” and writing. And Russell Dickerson talks with our amazing cover artist Ania Tomicka.
Head over to the Apex Magazine website to read Jason Sizemore’s editorial and E. Catherine Tobler’s story “Every Winter” right now. To catch more of the issue, check back often. We will be releasing new content all month long!

Every month I encourage readers to subscribe if they enjoy Apex Magazine, but this month in particular it is really important. We are currently running our annual subscription drive. Subscriptions are the main way which we keep Apex Magazine funded. They are how we pay our authors, artists, and other contributors. This year we have a goal of raising $10,000. If we reach that goal we will have the funds to increase the word count of each issue and raise the pay rate at which we pay our authors. We are also planning an amazing issue full of bonus content – including stories by Ursula Vernon, Nisi Shawl, John Hornor Jacobs, and E. Catherine Tobler – for the January 2017 issue as a thank you to our readers. So far, we have raised $1,623. If you enjoy Apex Magazine and if you’d like to help us continue to grow and expand, please consider supporting us during our drive which is running until November 15th.
