Help out a small press: good reading for sale at Electric Velocipede

It's been a long time since I posted here, but I thought this might be of interest to Aqueduct readers:

John Klima, the editor of Electric Velocipede, is having a little financial trouble.

Consequently, he's redoubling energies toward selling some of the back issues of Electric Velocipede, as well as some of the chapbooks that he's printed through his small press.

People who enjoy my work can find the original printing of my story "How the World Became Quiet: A Post-Human Creation Myth" (later printed at Escape Pod and in Best American Fantasy 2) in Electric Velocipede #13 for $5.

Though I haven't read it yet, I just ordered and am looking forward to "An Alternate History of the 21st Century", a chapbook of stories by William Shunn, whose story "Colin and Ishmael in the Dark" we featured on PodCastle this Halloween.

Other available magazines feature work by authors like Cory Doctorow, Karen Joy Fowler, Jeffrey Ford, and Hal Duncan.

Electric Velocipede has a reputation for publishing the quirkiest available in science fiction, fantasy, and other fiction of the weird. John Klima likes to publish the weird and wonderful, stuff that you won't find anywhere else.

John Klima has a strong, unique editing voice. Check out his catalog and see if anything strikes your fancy.
