Warrick, Nick Mamatas, Jennifer Pelland, Lavie Tidhar, Chesya Burke, Chris Bucholz, and many others. Its books and magazine have received awards in science fiction, fantasy, and horror, including the Hugo, Nebula, Stoker, and World Fantasy Awards, among others. In 2014, the third anthology in Apex’s international SF series, The Apex Book of World SF: Volume 3, was selected as one of NPR’s top 40 books of the year.

Thanks for sharing this. I have a hard scifi story that deliberately subverts a trope. It’s under 5k too. Should be a good fit.
Sounds fantastic! Glad I could share.
