Welcome to the Abyss & Apex Universe. Thank you very much for joining us in our journey. Our goal is to welcome new authors and expand the voices of science fiction and fantasy.

Abyss & Apex is a free quarterly online publication that features science fiction and fantasy prose and poetry. Although twenty-five percent of our authors are published for the first time anywhere, don’t let that fool you. We have had a number of stories receive awards or other honors. Abyss & Apex has even been nominated for a Hugo for best Semipro Magazine. Our authors are diverse, creative, and awesome, and we want you go through our pages and read all of the stories in our magazines.

Currently, we operate on the on the philosophy of creating pro writers, but we think that even new authors deserve better pay. At this time A&A offers a flat fee for stories, but we’d like to pay our authors more. With your help, we hope to be able to pay our authors pro rates (currently 6¢ per word.) Not only that, but we are also hoping to have more of a presence at local conventions. This means more exposure for our authors.

Abyss & Apex offers several different tiers of support so that a variety of fans can not only assist us in reaching our funding goals but get something special back. We hope that you will consider backing us.

Thank you,
Abyss & Apex staff
