“The Art Disease” by Dennis Danvers

Derek and Emily had the art disease, the both of them. Everyone they knew had it too. That’s one of the symptoms: Colonies, clusters, movements, splinter groups, manifestos. Clumping, the experts call it. She had a master’s in design and decorated cakes at Food One, not the one on Seventeenth but the one near the …

Remembering the Future, Winter 2011 editorial

In November of 2001, I went to the annual SFWA writers and editors meet-up in New York City. We were a scant two months removed from the tragedy of 9/11, and its enormity cast a shadow over the normally over-joyous celebration. I was no longer working in the city when the two towers collapsed, but …

Website Problems

We accidentally deleted our Word Press database the other day, and of course we had no reliable backup. We’ve been restoring pages and posts (for example, don’t forget we’re running a sale!) and we’ll be ready to post our new issue online starting on Monday! We’ll get a schedule up shortly, but we figured we …

Fiction Flashback — Aliette de Bodard

July 12, 2011 This story dates from the first time I ever proofread Electric Velocipede. Weirdly enough, when I first saw “The Dragon’s Tears” in my queue, I chose to proofread it last. (I skip around when I’m doing short fiction.)  I didn’t know then what possessed me; prescience, maybe.  When I began reading the …

Fiction Flashback – Jeffrey Ford

I’d been pushing Jeff to write a story for Electric Velocipede for some time. I was a huge fan of his Well-Built City trilogy, and enjoyed his short fiction even more. Getting a story from Jeffrey Ford would be a huge personal accomplishment. We had a series of flash fiction I was going to publish, …

Fiction Flashback – K. Tempest Bradford

by dwgrintalis June 27, 2011 I fell in love with this story the first time I read it, so when John asked us to pick a story for our Fiction Flashback feature, my choice was easy. This is one of those stories that reveals something new each time you read it and in my opinion, …

Fiction Flashback – Richard Bowes

by Patrick July 6, 2011 “The Bear Dresser’s Secret” was one of the first stories that I read from Electric Velocipede, and one of my favorites. It has just the right balance of humor, triumph, and grisliness. What struck me the most wasn’t Grismerelda’s struggle with the bears, entertaining as it was, but the Duchess’ …

Fiction Flashback – Ken Scholes

by Patrick July 18, 2011 I’m always fascinated by stories that cover the broad sweeps of a person’s life in a very short time because there are so many ways to go about them. When you take this approach, you’re forced to decide what you consider important in a life, or transformative, or educational. Scholes’ …
