Review: Semiprozine round up – Abyss & Apex

Following on from this https://camestrosfelapton.wordpress.com/2015/10/25/looking-at-semiprozines/

Abyss & Apex http://www.abyssapexzine.com/ a semiprozine with a name easily confused with Apex Magazine which is a different semiprozine altogether. Published quarterly it carries a mix of SF and fantasy stories as well as poems and book reviews. An excellent back catalog of authors but nothing really stood out in the issue I read but sufficient quality that I’d come back for a second visit.

Sorry? An elephant? Where? Oh the one in the room…OK Abyss & Apex were a Sad Puppy nominee for a Hugo in 2015 and were highly approving in an editorial about it here: http://www.abyssapexzine.com/2015/03/sad_puppies_3/ and they also have one of those ‘Human Wave’ (the Sarah Hoyt thing) going on http://www.abyssapexzine.com/2015/09/human-wave/ but in the end it is the quality of the stories that matter.
