Apex Magazine is switching to a PDF magazine format, with individual issues available for $2. Readers can also order a full-year subscription at a discounted price of $12.The PDF will be formatted like the print edition of Apex, which ceased publication last year. Since then, Apex has published stories on their website. Editor Jason Sizemore hopes using a PDF format will enable Apex to combine the best aspects of the print magazine with the advantages of online distribution.
Personally I think this is a great idea. I encourage people to purchase the PDF of the Feb. 2009 Apex, which features stories by Gord Sellar, Lavie Tidhar, Steven Francis Murphy, and Aaron Polson, along with an essay by Alethea Kontis and an interview with R. Thomas Riley.
