Spilt Milk Press Chapbooks

From 2006 – 2008 Spilt Milk Press published three chapbooks from Electric Velocipede regulars.

The first chapbook was a collection of Ezra Pines stories. Ezra was an early regular at Electric Velocipede. It was his “Mr. Brain” stories that drew us into his writing initially. We had Mark Rich do the cover as well as interior illustrations for the chapbook, and Hal Duncan graciously gave an introduction.

From there, an excellent collection from William Shunn followed (Cory Doctorow introduction) and finally another from Robert Freeman Wexler (Zoran Zivkovic intro).

At this time we are not currently seeking more chapbook projects.
