SFWA has announced that John Klima, who has previously worked for Asimov’s, Analog, and Tor Books, has been named the new editor of the SFWA Bulletin. Klima has previously edited the Hugo Award winning fanzine Electric Velocipede, which ran from 2001 through 2013 and has also edited the anthologies Logorrhea: Good Words Make Good Stories, Happily Ever After, and Mayhem and Glitter.
John Klima has announced that he will cease publication of his magazine Electric Velocipede with the current issue, citing “outstanding money owed me that just isn’t coming.” Electric Velocipede won a Hugo Award for Best Fanzine in 2009 and received four World Fantasy Award nominations (along with one more for one of their stories).
John Klima has announced that Electric Velocipede will cease to be distributed by Night Shade Press after the current issue, 21/22. Klima and Night Shade have determined that Night Shade’s book business can not support the distribution of a periodical. Night Shade will pay contributors to Electric Velocipede 23-25 and the contents of those issues will be placed on-line. If the magazine continues beyond that point, it will most likely be on-line only.
