Apex Magazine # 88, September 2016 (e-mag review).

Issue 88 of ‘Apex Magazine’ is hot off the press and the very striking cover by Mélanie Delon. It is hauntingly beautiful and scary at the same time. Not the type of person you would want to meet on a dark September night. Having savoured the cover, ‘Apex’ kick things off as normal with Jason […]

Apex Magazine Issue 85, June 2016 (emag review).

Another month rolls by and brings with it another ‘Apex Magazine’. This is issue 85 and, let’s make this very clear right from the start, it’s an excellent issue. For me, ‘Apex’ has always been about the stories. Yes, I read the poetry, interviews and non-fiction pieces. In fact, I read it from cover to […]

Apex Magazine #84, May 2016 (emag review).

It’s Apex # 84 under scrutiny in this review and there’s no better place to start than the intriguing cover art by Robert Carter. A man’s head is apparently being unwound (literally) and seems to be filled with nothing but fresh air. While the illustration does not relate to any specific story there is a […]

It’s February, so it’s time for Apex Magazine # 81. As always, the first thing to hit you is the cover art and I do like this month. It’s by David Demaret who manages to impress not only by what’s depicted but by the suggestion there’s an awful lot more just out of view. The […]

Apex Magazine Issue 73, June 2015  (emag review).

It’s another month which means it’s another ‘Apex Magazine’. After the last couple of issues, where it seemed to be losing direction and struggling for content, I had reservations about reading this one but old habits die hard and I had a quick look. This turned into a longer look and before I knew it, […]

Apex Magazine Issue 72, May 2015 (magazine review).

It’s been a couple of months since I last read ‘Apex Magazine’ and the first thing to hit you is the cover artwork by Beth Spencer which is striking to say the least. It’s not often you see a steampunk fairy. While talking about the cover, I should mention that there’s a good interview with […]

Apex Magazine # 62, July 2014 (magazine review).

With magazines, the cover is an exceptionally critical component. Get it wrong and people will pass up on the issue regardless of the quality of content within the magazine. ‘Apex Magazine’ has been blessed with some exceptional covers recently and issue 62 is another winner provided by Ashley Mackenzie. The cover illustrating ‘The Scarved’ should […]

Apex Magazine Issue 61, June 2014 (magazine review).

‘Apex Magazine Issue 61’ keeps with the usual format of short stories, poetry, interviews and a non-fiction piece. There is also Resolute: Notes from the Editor-in-Chief section, penned once again by Sigrid Ellis. For once, I thought this was a good piece as Ellis explains why he had included items but was dismayed to read […]

Apex Magazine Issue 54, November 2013 (magazine review).

I’m always prepared to accept that magazines will be a mixed bag of content as they have to cater for as large an audience as possible. Some items will hit the mark for me and some will miss completely. As it happens, the first story item ‘Recordings Of A More Personal Nature’ by Bogi Takács […]

Apex Magazine # 50 (e-magazine review).

‘Apex Magazine’ describes itself to be in the realms of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror. ‘Strange, beautiful, shocking, surreal’ are also words which appear on the website. After having read ‘Apex’ for a few issues you can certainly understand that the claims may be true. In order to survive the length of time that Apex […]
