Apex Birthday Sale!

by Jason Sizemore
It's missing an alien head!

Five years ago today I released the first issue of Apex Science Fiction and Horror Digest. And now here we are with twenty books under the alien head banner, a pro-level e-zine, and a fan base that I adore and love.

The past five years have been a blast. The best part of having created Apex Publications has been the multitudes of friendships I’ve made. Without Apex, I would not know people like Deb Taber, Mari Adkins, Gill Ainsworth, Maggie Jamison, Jennifer Brozek, Alethea Kontis, Mary Robinette Kowal, Maurice Broaddus, Jerry Gordon, Lavie Tidhar, MM Buckner, Ekaterina Sedia, Cherie Priest, Geoffrey Girard, Jennifer Pelland, Judi Davidson, Michael A. Burstein, J.M. McDermott, Sara M. Harvey, Melissa Gay, Alex McVey, Katja Faith, Gary A. Braunbeck, Lucy Snyder, Nick Mamatas, Wrath James White, Gene O’Neill, Eugie Foster, Steve Gilberts…frankly, this list could go on for pages (and many of these people have been by my side for the whole five years). As you can see, I have been blessed with an abundance of awesome friends and support.

To celebrate I’m giving out a $5.00 coupon for use in the Apex Shop good on any order until March 23rd. Just enter BIRTHDAY on checkout to receive your discount. (Hey, after five years, y’all know that I’m always hustling!)

*Raises alien head shot glass to the air*
And here’s hoping the next five years are as great as the past five!
