  • March Noir: All Darkness, All the Time

    There are no happy endings in noir There are no happy endings in noir, of course. The best we can hope for is a slightly lighter shade of darkness. But this story doesn’t even permit us the illusion that there might be some glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. We know exactly where it leads. Which makes the tale an excellent metaphor for human existence. We’re all going to die, we know it, and nothing we can do will prevent this outcome. The only questions are how do we live with that knowledge and


  • Dancing with the Devil: KDP Select FREE Post-Mortem Thoughts

    Dancing with the Devil: KDP Select FREE Post-Mortem Thoughts on Apr 24, 2012 in the convent of the pure On March 27th, 28th, and 29th, Apex enrolled The Convent of the Pure by Sara M. Harvey in the Amazon Select KDP FREE promotion. As promised in this , I would come back and talk about the experience. THE PROGRAM I titled the blog post “Dancing with the Devil” because I’m not a big fan of the KDP Select program. To me, it defines everything that makes Amazon into such a divisive entity. By signing up for a


  • Strengthening the Horror Genre for Professionals, Readers, and Fans

    Strengthening the Horror Genre for Professionals, Readers, and Fans on Nov 6, 2013 in I’m of the opinion that for a long time, horror was relegated to a kind of distasteful ghetto of literature – or, to be more accurate, was considered beneath the lofty title of “literature” in much the same way that many believe adult entertainment films are not counted among the revered genres of cinema, or that Pizza Hut and Dominoes are not really pizza. I have no dog in the race of legitimate pizza types or

  • The Promise of What Is Not

    Twilight Zones, The Movie! What could possibly go wrong? They’re making a new Godzilla movie. Let me say that again, just in case you ain’t heard: they’re making a new Godzilla movie. Oh please, don’t do this to me again… …not another Matthew Broderick vehicle, oh please. Wait… Bryan Cranston’s in it? Oh no, I think that’s a good thing. Ah, man. I wanna see the new Godzilla.

  • WEIRD FICTION: The Weird Fiction of John Hornor Jacobs’ Southern Gods

    WEIRD FICTION: The Weird Fiction of John Hornor Jacobs’ Southern Gods on May 10, 2013 in Hastur John Hornor Jacobs Lewis Bull Ingram Lovecraftian Ramblin ' John Hastur Sarah Rheinhart Southern Gods You’ve probably noticed it’s Weird Fiction month here on the Apex blog. There’s been a lot of talk, lately, about what is and isn’t weird as far as fiction goes anymore. When we read a genre to the point where we can guess endings and plot twists, where we feel we know the monsters that inhabit the pages


  • Women of Horror: Four Frighteningly Talented Artists

    Rat City Rollergirls ’ : Okay , so Grave Danger isn’t one woman; roller derby team rosters can hold up to twenty skaters. My bad. However, I do think there’s an argument to be made that what makes Grave Danger (tagline: “Your Worst Nightmare!”) so terrifyingly talented is their singularity of purpose. When they’re on the track, they skate like one mind in five bodies, shutting down the competition and elevating derby to an art form while making the whole thing look easy. It’s thrilling to cheer them on


  • March Noir: Frances McDormand, woman of noir

    March Noir: Frances McDormand, woman of noir on Mar 8, 2013 in frances mcdormand Welcome to March, everyone! Here at the Apex blog, we’re taking a trip to the cool world of film noir. Get ready for femmes fatales, because we’ll be celebrating the women in noir. First up: Frances McDormand. Granted, when you think of Frances McDormand, “noir” is probably not the first word that comes to mind. Maybe you remember her Academy Award-winning performance as Marge Gunderson in Fargo. Maybe you picture her as


  • Another Mo*Con Cometh

    by Maurice Broaddus [Unfortunately , won ’t be with us (though we will still be having our traditional "In Celebration of Alethea Kontis Opening Dinner"). However, will be joining us. So imagine him in that outfit.*] Alethea Kontis Brian Keene approaches: May 4th-6th (Cinco de Mo*Yo). I both love and dread this time of year.
