The latest issue of Apex (#10) is the best so far. It's got Very Good stories by Cherie Priest, Lavie Tidhar, Ian Creasey, Patrice Sarath and Nancy Fulda, interviews with Cherie Priest & William Nolan and more.

I'm enjoying Apex more and more and all of the stories in this issue got a Very Good from me. The issue starts out with "Bad Sushi" by Cherie Priest. Baku works in the kitchen at a sushi place, cutting the fish. He likes his job but, one day, he notices something different about the food. His boss says that they are now getting it from some place in New England. Baku notices that the food is changing people and takes action. Lavie Tidhar's "Daydreams" takes place in a world where dreams (scary ones) really do come true. Raphael tries to protect the waking world with a little help.

"Memories of the Knacker's Yard by Ian Creasey is a chilling little tale set in a world in which ghosts wander about freely. Malcolm Chenier is a homicide detective who wants to solve a string of murders. He must go to a place where the dead congregate. Patrice Sarath's "Pigs and Feaches" features a near future in which a virus called Fast A acts like a "super-Alzheimer's", robbing people of their minds overnight. Two thieves decide to rob the wrong house.

"Cain Xp11 (Part 2) The Henry Lee Lucas Memorial Highway by Geoffrey Girard" is a serialized 4 part story that I'll review when it's complete. Last of all, is the Apex Parting Shot, "Monument" by Nancy Fulda. In this short-short, a woman visits a monument to a very unique battle.
