Electric Velocipede and Icarus Closing
Electric Velocipede has a story in the Year's Best SF, 31st edition.
Beneath Ceaseless Skies blogged about our final issue. Locus has a long review of EV 27, which includes spoilers for some pieces (I like to read my short fiction without knowing anything about it, myself, but YMMV, of course).
"I’m unhappy to bid goodbye to Electric Velocipede, of which we have the last issue here. A loss to the field." - Lois Tilton

Come to ConFusion next month (17-19 January 2014) and help us remember Electric Velocipede! And if you're in NYC during February 2014, they're throwing a party too. Huzzah to Matt and Sam!

But we're having a wake in Michigan.
I am particularly proud of this as it was somewhat my idea, you see. And I wanted John to enjoy ConFusion 2014; what better way than a party? Celebration and farewell. Come raise a glass with us -- there will be door prizes and raffles and STUFF. Really!
I loved working on EV. I'm proud to have been part of the team for 2008-2013. I'm grateful for the others who became part of the team too -- for a little while or a long time, depending on their lives.
I'm thankful for them all, every one: Adam, Patrick, Damien, Jamie; and all our slushreaders and proofreaders and support staff and... you. Thank you. It's been a wonderful ride on Electric Velocipede.
I'm so glad I got to hitch a ride. With John and with all of you.
