This rating is only for the short story "Cottage Country" written by David K. Yeh which you can read for free here:

And I'd also like to thank the fabulous Tadiana and the lovely karen for pointing me in the direction of this little gem of a short story (click the links to read their excellent reviews).

David K. Yeh is a man who can write atmosphere. Man can he spin an eerie tale. Every single detail is written not only beautifully, but also delicately, as i

Enjoyed "Cottage Country" and "The Drowned Celestial" quite a bit. Both were slower, quiet stories, and Tidhar's could easily have been in the Central Station world? Or similar.

"The Drowned Celestial" by Lavie Tidhar was a little overlong and boring at times, but everything else in this issue was tight and fun. "1957" by Stephen Cox was subtly creepy though was too deliberately ambiguous to execute the landing. "Cottage Country" by David Yeh was my favorite, closely followed by "The Behemoth Beaches" by Maggie Slater. All the poetry was quite nice.

I've read "1957", "Cottage Country" and "The Behemoth Beaches" from this issue (so much to read and so little time so I tend to read only the weird stuff and the poetry). I enjoyed all of them.

Awesome Issue

This was another stand out issue by Apex. I have to say that the poetry was amazing. The Perfect Planet by Christina Sng was absolutely gorgeous. I could read it over and over again. The short fiction was also wonderful. 1957 by Stephen Cox made my head spin (in a good way). It is definitely a story that deserves multiple rereads. The interview with Stephen Cox was great to read. I loved it. This issue overall was really great. Looking forward to next month's!

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
