Number 100 of Apex Magazine has new stories by Kameron Hurley, Andrea Tong, and Kristi DeMeester, reprint stories by Carrie Laben and Lucy A. Snyder, as well as other features.

Here we have the 100th issue of Apex Magazine which has three new stories, two reprints, and other features.

The new fiction begins with "Tumbledown" by Kameron Hurley. -+- Sarnia lives on the planet Narantu which is covered in ice and mercury. When she was a child she had survived a plague called Tumbledown which left her with no feeling in the lower half of her body. The sight of her makes people uncomfortable. Now, the plague has returned and she must brave the ice and a bear to get the serum to people who need it. A great story of courage and survival.

The second new story is "The Man in the Crimson Coat" by Andrea Tong. -+- A woman picks up the piano player in a bar. The piano player is also a killer of bad people. But she is after someone else who has a similar mission, someone who rescued her when she was a child. Well-crafted story with interesting characters.

The third new story is "The Lightning Bird" by Kristi DeMeester. -+- Gable's mother had been the woman with powers in her village, powers to heal the other women. When she dies, Gable inherits her powers, but her first job is something for her. A richly done fantasy.
