For 10+ years, Apex Magazine has brought online readers a monthly dose of science fiction, fantasy, horror, and genre-blending stories and poems. Each issue includes original stories and reprints, along with author/artist interviews and genre-related nonfiction. We are a three-time Hugo Award nominee and our stories have earned multiple Hugo and Nebula Award nominations and even won a couple. Our mandate has always been to bring you, the reader, works full of marrow and passion, and stories where secret places and dreams are put on display.

Expansion plans for Apex Magazine:
*The addition of more original fiction.
*Adding a second story to our monthly podcast.
*Add a second reprint to each issue.
*More artwork
*Increase pay for our writers and artists.

This is where Patreon can help us. We've always made our content available to read online for free and that is not going to change. For the last six years, we've relied on traditional digital subscriptions as our means of reliable income. Patreon will provide another source of safe month to month income and enable Apex Magazine to go forward with its growth plans should we meet our goals.

We also have **print** edition subscriptions available exclusively through Patreon. How cool is that?

How does Patreon work? You can pledge any amount that you want and once a month Patreon will automatically bill you for that amount. At different reward tiers, you're rewarded with more!
