Nuclear Winter by Ash Krafton

Gone, now, is the green man deep into the cold hard ground– our May-December romance comes to chilled and frozen end.

Long ago I …

Butterfly Effect by Mishell Baker

I’m sitting behind a bush staring at an airstrip with an assault rifle on my lap, and for the life of me I can’t remember why. But Toto, I am definitely not in San Diego anymore. Not the war, either. Women don’t get drafted, and I am not in the desert; behind me and across …

Jonathan Strahan’s Best Science Fiction and Fantasy Volume 7

Jonathan Strahan recently posted the table of contents for his seventh volume of best science fiction and fantasy, and it looks like a real corker. Alas, none of the stories from Electric Velocipede‘s 2012 output made the volume (I can’t remember if Strahan does an honorable mention list; I don’t think he does) but several …

A Remembrance of the Future by John Klima

Not that long ago—in August and September of 2012—I ran a Kickstarter campaign to fund Electric Velocipede in 2013. Not only were we successful in achieving our goal, but we also were able to hit a stretch goal to fund converting our back issues into digital format. While it was nice to think that there …

Blindfold Taste Tests

Starting in issue #13, we ran a feature called “The Blindfold Taste Test” (BTT) where an author would answer ten questions about food. This came out of two things: my love for food and cooking, and what I perceive as science fiction and fantasy’s love of food particularly where conventions are concerned. Perhaps I’m being …
