The Apex Book Company announced July 13th that it was going to be upgrading itself once again. What started out as a short story literary magazine for dark science fiction grew to also include a line of books, and as of earlier this week its expanding its focus again. Why stay planted on the physical plane? What was on printed page yesterday is online today. Who said technology wasn’t wonderful?
The magazine, which used to pay authors semi-pro rates for their submissions, is now going to be paying submitting authors pro rates. What does this mean? Well one would hope this means that with the pay increase there shouldn’t just be an increase in the quantity of authors participating in the free online digest, but also the quality of those submissions. With easy and free access to stories by so many authors this is truly a treat for story lovers. After all, “it’s all about the stories” over at Apex!
With free science fiction at your fingertips, I hope you will all go out there and check Apex out. I know I am very interested in reading the stories they have to offer and I look forward to their future success. Good luck with your World Domination plan, Apex.
