Electric Velocipede

I used to be a big nut for those cute little sci-fi magazines - Asimov's, Analog, and especially Fantasy and Science Fiction. But increasingly I found I was only enjoying one or two of the stories in each issue, and so I eventually stopped getting them. Either my standards had gone up, or theirs had gone down. So when I got a copy of Electric Velocipede #13 I was skeptical. After all, it's just a 'zine, with a silly name and a black and white cover. Surely it would be even more eclectic and less to my taste.

So it's to my great surprise that I tell you that I enjoyed every single story, of which there were many, and even one or two of the poems. This is high quality writing indeed. I know my standards haven't gone down, just the opposite, so editor John Klima must just be that good. In any case, if you like sci-fi, or "speculative fiction" in their parlance, it's well worth your time and money.
