March 2011: Apex Magazine is a monthly science fiction, fantasy, and horror magazine featuring original, mind-bending short fiction from many of the top pros of the field.
Our March issue begins with Darin Bradley’s “The Dust and the Red” where a young girl, a terrible dirt storm, and a little wax man are held in thrall by magical powers from the earth.
Kat Howard’s “The Speaking Bone” sees a woman miraculously resurrected by bones from a mysterious island.
And in Veronica Schanoes’ creepy “Rats”, we meet the evil and pain lurking just beneath the surface in all of us.
Issue 22 also contains the poems “Quest” by Jessica Wick and “The King of Cats, the Queen of Wolves” by Mike Allen, Sonya Taaffe, and Nicole Kornher-Stace.
Apex Magazine is edited by Catherynne M. Valente.
