Lynne M. Thomas, editor-in-chief of Apex Magazine, has announced her plans to step down after the December 2013 issue. Managing editor (and her husband) Michael Damian Thomas is leaving at the same time.
Thomas took over from previous editor Catherynne M. Valente in November 2011. In her farewell, Thomas wrote, “I’m in need of break, after which I’m looking forward to exploring new opportunities and projects…. Publisher Jason Sizemore plans on continuing the magazine. Michael and I are working closely with the incoming editor to ensure a smooth transition. We appreciate your patience during this time.”
