Apex has posted the table of contents for the upcoming anthology The Book of Apex: Volume 4 of Apex Magazine edited by Lynne M. Thomas and featuring cover art by Julie Dillon:

Here’s the book description:

Thirty-three science fiction, fantasy, and horror short stories grab readers by their emotional cores to star deep into the source of our humanity and inhumanity. Well-known authors like Ken Liu, Genevieve Valentine, Catherynne M. Valente, Lavie Tidhar, and Alethea Kontis, along with newer voices, sketch surreal pasts, presents, and futures full of characters with familiar and outsized desires and fears.

The Book of Apex Volume 4 collects the original fiction from Hugo-winning editor Lynne M. Thomas’s first fifteen issues at the helm of Apex Magazine, which included two Hugo Award nominations for the magazine.
