ApexMag 55Apex Publications is pleased to announce the release of issue 55 of its Hugo Award-nomination short fiction zine Apex Magazine.

This is a bit of a bittersweet release for us. This issue marks the last one for our editor-in-chief Lynne M. Thomas. Lynne joined us 26 issues ago, and her run as chief has been nothing short of amazing. We will miss Lynne, and wish her the best of luck in all her future endeavors!
