This is the third or fourth collection I've read from Apex, and while not quite the punch in the gut that Dark Faith is, it's still a superior collection that I recommend to any fan of dark fiction and horror.

One of the things that make small presses an interesting part of the publishing world is that, because there are less people involved with them, they tend to have more of a unique style.

Apexology is a good example of what the "Apex style" is - the twenty-odd stories here cover a lot of different sub-genres and nooks a...more

I was born the son of an unemployed coal miner in a tiny Kentucky Appalachian villa named Big Creek (population 400). It’s an isolated area with beautiful rolling hills, thick forests, and country folk. I lived in Big Creek until I went to college, spending my weekends cruising the Winn Dixie parking lot of ladies, partying in my cousin’s run-down three room trailer, and being a member of the bad-...more
