Tangent Reviews: Apex Magazine

Issue #76 of Apex Magazine features four pieces of original fiction:

  • “Child, Funeral, Thief, Death” by Tade Thompson
  • “Find Me” by Isabel Yap
  • “Frozen Planet” by Marian Womack
  • “Mountain” by Liu Cixin (translated by Holgar Nahm)

I was most taken by Isabel Yap’s “Find Me,” a story about a girl dealing with her grief via a peculiar, not quite real, not quite imaginary friend. The emotion is thick in the story, giving even its fantastic elements a weight of truth that makes the whole thing easily relatable to the reader.

You can find this issue of Apex here. My review for the above short stories can be found on Tangent.
