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.

The monthly magazine was edited by award-winning author Catherynne M. Valente from issues #15-29.,[1] Hugo Award winning editor, Lynne M. Thomas,[2] from issues #30-55, and Sigrid Ellis, from issues #56-67.

The current editor is Jason Sizemore, starting with issue #68.[3]

On June 25, 2009, it was announced[4] that a print version of Apex Digest would be returning, this time utilizing print-on-demand technology.
