President Steven Gould is pleased to announce, on behalf of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, that John Klima has been hired as the new editor of the organization’s flagship magazine, The Bulletin.
John Klima previously worked at Asimov’s, Analog, and Tor Books before returning to school to earn his Master’s in Library and Information Science. He now works full time as the assistant director of a large public library. John edited and published the Hugo Award-winning genre zine Electric Velocipede from 2001 to 2013. The magazine was also a four-time nominee for the World Fantasy Award and recipient of the Tiptree Honor List for one of its stories.
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. In 2011, Klima edited a reprint anthology of fairytale retellings titled Happily Ever After. He co-edited Glitter & Mayhem with Lynne M. Thomas and Michael Damian Thomas — a 2013 Kickstarter-funded anthology of speculative nightclub stories. He and his family live in the Midwest.
John is “…very excited for this opportunity to be part of a new era for the SFWA Bulletin. I look forward to engaging SFWA’s membership as we move forward with an updated, modern Bulletin.”
John Klima’s editorial direction will begin with the upcoming Spring Nebula issue. SFWA would also like to take this opportunity, again, to thank Jean Rabe for her hard work in editing The Bulletin for the last several years.
Writers interested in submitting to the Bulletin should send a short pitch on their proposed topic, along with a bio of relevant experience, to [email protected]. Non-members and associated professionals are welcome to submit as well.
