The Apex Book of World SF 5

I’m delighted to announce The Apex Book of World SF: Volume 5, guest-edited by Cristina Jurado and published by Apex in September in paperback and e-book. Cover artwork is by Sarah Anne Langton.

I am very excited about this new volume! Not only did I never imagine we’d get this far all the way back in 2009, but I think Cristina did an amazing job expanding the series’ reach with the latest volume. Please do consider pre-ordering your copy! (currently with a 25% discount). Or pick up all 4 previous volumes in one easy bundle!
