Electric Velocipede Bluestockings Memorial Sampler Spectacular

On Friday February 28, 2014 ten writers and one editor converged on Bluestockings Books in Manhattan for an amazing event. They were there to celebrate Electric Velocipede and all that it accomplished during its twelve year run:

  • Published twenty-seven issues
  • Featured more than 250 writers published
  • Won the Best Fanzine Hugo in 2009
  • Was nominated four times for the World Fantasy Award
  • Had a piece of fiction selected for the Tiptree Honor List
  • Had several stories reprinted in different year’s best anthologies

There are many authors who started their career or had early stories published in the pages of Electric Velocipede including Catherynne M. Valente, Alietter de Bodard, Rachel Swirsky, Tim Akers, Monica Byrne, and Ann Leckie. We made an effort to showcase women writers and seek out young writers. Many graduates of Clarion were featured in our pages.

Our event on February 28 was a micro-cosm of the magazine. A mixture of writers in different stages of their careers. A plethora of amazing stories. And we’ve gather it together for you:

This is an excellent way to jump into Electric Velocipede and get a sense of what we’ve done over the years. It’s only $1.99 for nine great stories and two phenomenal poems. You can get copies from Weightless Books or you can get a copy at Amazon.
