Number 91 of Apex Magazine has new stories by Helen Stubbs, K.T. Bryski, and Lavie Tidhar, poems by M. Brett Gaffney and Donna Ison, and other features.

Here we have the 91st issue of Apex Magazine, with three new stories and other features.

The new fiction begins with "Uncontainable" by Helen Stubbs. -+- Our narrator is a boarder in an house with a mother, her daughter, an infant son, and a maid. The little girl acts out with tremendously bad behavior. But is it her that's the monster? A really chilling little story!

The second new story is "The Love It Bears Fair Maidens" by K.T. Bryski. -+- This is a very different take on unicorns laying their heads down into the laps of maidens. Very well done in so few pages.

The third new story is "Red Christmas" by Lavie Tidhar. -+- A writer facing the Holocaust thinks of an alternate history in which Hitler is a refugee from the Communists in England in 1937 where the British Fascists are on the rise. He calls himself Wolf and is a private eye. It reads like a different kind of hard-boiled detective story. Very well done, but Hitler says that the only "Rudolf" he knows is named Hess. A certain reindeer was not created until 1939.

Apex Magazine works in a unique way. If you are a subscriber, you get your issue when itís published. Otherwise, you wait a month. They are worth supporting, so check them out at their website (see link at the top of this review).
