Book Giveaway: Apex Digest #6

Ok, this week, I’m not giving a book away, exactly, but it may just be the next best thing. Heck, it may even be better. And it’s a perfect giveaway for Halloween!

I’ve been a huge fan of _Apex Digest_ since the journal’s inception a couple of years ago. Jason Sizemore, the founder and editor-in-chief, has done a remarkable job of building this new science fiction and horror journal from the ground up.

Now – I have an extra copy of Apex Digest Issue #6. Mint condition. Never been read. Except maybe by the little fuzz monster that lives under my desk. It’s possible _he_ might have cracked the cover one night while I was sleeping. But if he did, he cleaned up when he was done because the journal still looks pristine.

So what is _Apex Digest_? It’s science fiction. It’s horror. Even better, it’s the love-child of the two. And it’s fabulous. If you like your sci-fi with a bit of darkness (or vice versa), then _Apex Digest_ is for you, and I have just the appetizer to whet your appetite.

_Apex #6_ contains stories from writers like Ben Bova, Bryn Sparks, Mary Robinette Kowal, and more. There are also interviews with Poppy Z. Brite and Kage Baker.

Just leave a comment (with valid email address) on this entry for your chance to win Issue #6 of _Apex Digest_. One comment only per person, please. Entrants with multiple comments will be disqualified. I’ll randomly choose a winner next Wednesday, Nov. 7. Everything clear? Yes? Good.

  1. Hey, Jim! I just want to add to your thoughts on Apex, and say that’s it my favorite mag. Glad to see you’re spreading the word.

    I’ve got a subscription, so I hope your #6 goes to a new Apex reader. Once they start, they’ll be hooked.


  2. Apex#6 is one of my personal favorites. I have it already, so you need not include my name in the mix. But I will pass the word along so that your comment box may prosper, and a lucky reader may bask in the glory of Apex.

  3. Hey Jim,

    I think this is a wonderful idea. I would definitely give issue #6 a good home if I win, however, now I’ve learned about your blog so I win anyway.

    Thank you,
    –Greg “The Undead Rat”

  4. The Apex Digest #6 sounds very interesting. Back when I was a an addicted bookworm, my favorite subject was Sci Fi. And I sought out books with multiple stories. So this is “right up my alley”.

    Oh the memories… I was the sick child that read through my entire English Literature book the first week we got them. LOL…

  5. I’ve known the editor of Apex since Kindergarten. Apex no. 6 contains a story from one of my good friends, Robby Sparks, who I’ve also known since 1st grade. I got a preview of his story, Indigestion, before it was published. Jason and Robby started writing together back in grade school–they were a creative couple of guys!! I missed out on getting this copy. Would be very cool to have.

  6. Congratulations to Joe Sherry, who is the winner for this week’s giveaway!

    One note of interest: I’d like to continue doing book giveaways on a regular basis here, whether they be actual books or speculative fiction journals of some kind, but unfortunately I’m running low on materials to give away. I have one more book for one final giveaway and then I may have to put book giveaways on hold for awhile. If anyone has any books or journals they’d like to donate to the cause, please let me know. I have a lot of fun with these and I think my readers do, too.

  7. Gregory Fisher » You’re quite welcome! I actually forgot about doing my book giveaway for this week, so I think I’ll hold off and do it next Wednesday, just to stay on a somewhat regular schedule with these things. I hope you – and everyone else – will come back and participate!

Have anything to add to the conversation?
