Abyss & Apex: Hugo-Nominated Magazine of Speculative Fiction

http://www.abyssapexzine.com/2014-awards-eligible-stories-and-poems/

Abyss & Apex is a 2015 Hugo nominee for Best Semiprozine.

It's a web-based zine publishing a mix of poetry and fiction. I was very pleased to see that they have organized and accessible archives that made it easy to look at their issues from 2014. i.e., the relevant ones for this year's Hugos. Overall, the quality looks high, and the presentation is good. My one objection is that the body text font doesn't seem to be completely consistent across the site, and for me, that makes it a smidge less reasonable. In total, though, I'm favorably impressed.
