Abyss & Apex magazine is pleased to announce that our newest in a series of “best of” A&A anthologies—Best of A&A 4—will be released on October 2, 2021. I think anyone who reads this LGBTQ+ focused volume, curated from over 15 years of our published stories, will see that A&A is committed to bringing you the best short fiction and poetry possible, no matter what creed, gender, religion, or politics the author may espouse or write about.
It was a pleasure working on this with guest editor S. Qiouyi Lu, and many thanks to the other people that helped make this book happen: artists Kenn Brown and Chris Wren at Mondolithic Studios, cover designer J. Kathleen Cheney, and interior book designer Danielle Ackley-Mcphail. And, of course, our thanks to all of the wonderful authors who wrote the stories and poetry that make this book something special.
A extra-special thank you to award-winning author Lucy A. Snyder for making a fantastic story available to us that it only been in a 400-copy print edition up until now. You won’t see it anywhere else.
Please consider buying a copy because this is a charity anthology. The proceeds will go to Sage, which helps LGBTQ seniors in my former New York City. No one should have to go through their senior years in distress. You can pre-order it before it comes out. Here’s the Amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B09H54FVB1/
