John Klima is the Assistant Director at the Waukesha Public Library. He also edits the Hugo Award–winning magazine Electric Velocipede. The magazine has also been nominated for the World Fantasy Award four times. In 2007 Klima edited an anthology of science fiction and fantasy stories based on spelling-bee winning words called Logorrhea: Good Words Make Good Stories. Klima edited a reprint anthology of fairy tale retellings called Happily Ever After that came out from Night Shade Books in the Summer of 2011. In 2013, ALA Editions will publish his Readers Advisory book on Steampunk.
In the week leading up to Worldcon, I launched a Kickstarter campaign for Electric Velocipede. If you’ve never heard of Electric Velocipede it’s an eclectic, speculative fiction magazine. The magazine was founded in 2001 and has published at least two issues (and the occasional double issue) every year since. In 2009 it won the Hugo Award for Best Fanzine. It’s also been nominated for the World Fantasy Award four times and had several of its stories reprinted in year’s best anthologies.
