I don’t normally make two posts in the same day but John Klima, editor of the Hugo award-winning magazine Electric Velocipede, just sent me this email:
I’m trying to earn money in a Pepsi Refresh grant to start a magazine to
showcase underrepresented cultures in science fiction. The link is here:
Basically, Pepsi awards various grants every month. In the $25K division which Klima is applying for, Pepsi awards 10 such grants. He’s going to use this money to create a quarterly magazine (for one year) that features underrepresented cultures. All you need to do is vote and make sure Klima is in one of the top ten spots (his current ranking at this time is #234). You can vote by signing up with Pepsi or just use your Facebook account (which I did). #234 to #10 seems like a longshot but we have to start from somewhere, and all it’s asking of you is to register and vote.
