A Shiny New Electric Velocipede

The Hugo Award winning zine, Electric Velocipede, has a shiny new website. If you are familiar with the zine, you probably know that EV is transitioning from print to ezine. If you're not familiar with the zine, you should definitely go check it out. I say that as both a fan of the zine and the newest member of the EV team. I got to know the Editor, John Klima, via Twitter, by way of Jaym Gates, and needless to say, I'm very excited and honored to be part of such an awesome magazine.
