Apex magazine will go on indefinite hiatus following its 120th issue, after ten years of publication. Its last issue will be the Afrofuturism issue guest edited by Maurice Broaddus.
Publisher and editor-in-chief Jason Sizemore said:
One thing that became obvious to me is that I was neglecting both myself and the book side of Apex. I need to take time to exercise, take some time for my health, do more things for fun, enjoy having my kids around before they leave for college in a few years. I need time to read more books! And on the book side of Apex, I had been failing to do the minimum for success because so much of my time was being poured into Apex Magazine. The magazine flourished, while the books languished….
It comes down to health and economics and family. Like most decisions in life.
The Apex website will remain active. For more information, see the official announcement.
