Apex Magazine, also previously known as Apex Digest, is an American horror and science fiction magazine which began publishing in 2005 out of Lexington, Kentucky. In 2008, Apex Digest ceased printing the American digest size print version and opted to move the magazine online. This free webzine, Apex Magazine, contains fiction, reviews, and interviews. This is a professional market and pays pro-rates (5 cents per word), as defined by SFWA and HWA.
On June 25, 2009, it was announced that a print version of Apex Digest would be returning, this time utilizing print-on-demand technology.
Authors published by Apex have included Neil Gaiman, Poppy Z Brite, Cherie Priest, Eugie Foster, Ben Bova, William F. Nolan, Sara King, Brian Keene and many others. Featured authors on Apex Online have included Steven Savile, Sara King, David Conyers and Lavie Tidhar.
