Q&A with the editors of Apex Magazine!

Posted on: August 12, 2020

Hey!  I was on a YouTube!  I moderated the Apex Magazine Q&A with the Editors.  Here’s a link to the Youtube!

The Q and A is with editors Jason Sizemore, Lesley Conner, Maurice Broaddus, and Shana DuBois. We got tons of cool questions, including questions about the financial dangers of putting fiction online for free, is funding through Kickstarter sustainable, what is the editor’s and slush readers process, what was Maurice’s vision for the Afrofuturism issue,  why is the magazine switching to 6 issues per year instead of 12, and more.  We had some technical issues with the Livestream, but the evening was a ton of fun, and now the video is on Youtube, forever!

oh, have you backed the Apex Mag kickstarter yet?

I am really excited for that Special Indigenous & Native Fantasists issue, I hope we get it!

 

sneak peak of the video:

oh, didn’t I mention? my big hair, Totoro, and some of my dinosaurs made a cameo.

 

I’ve done youtube chats, and podcasts, but the amount of backchannel chatter happening in something like this, it was unreal! and by unreal, what I mean was it was a thrill! all the behind the scenes stuff (that you don’t see!) gave me so much nostalgia of when I was a back stage theater kid in high school.  We knew what was happening on stage, on both wings, in the back, behind the scrim, up in the spot booth, at the board, everywhere.

SO FUN!!!!

I‘m so grateful to see all those big smiles from you during the interview 😍. In these times one needs wholesome enthusiasm!
Would it be possible to get an index for the interview questions, possibly with time stamps?

I’m not an overly smiley person, i was really trying to smile a lot, and be a cheerful host!

i know the team is really busy right now going through all the submissions and kickstarter updates and all that, but I’ll inquire to see if someone has time to do an index of the questions and timestamps.

So your inner self is a more grumpy one? Welcome to the club, I say 🤣 You hid that effectively, congratulations!
And thanks for trying with the indexing.

some of the books reviewed here were free ARCs supplied by publishers/authors/other groups. Some of the books here I got from the library. the rest I *gasp!* actually paid for. I'll do my best to let you know what's what.
