Archive ed Paul quits magazinePublished: 21st Jun 2007, 18:05:50 | Permalink | Printable
He picks Jim Nagel as successorPaul Beverley will step down as editor of Archive magazine after two decades in the post. Paul, who has been forging a career as a freelance journal and book editor, will hand over the reins to long-term RISC OS journalist Jim Nagel.
In an editorial in the latest issue of Archive, leaked to drobe.co.uk ahead of publication this week, Paul will tell subscribers: "I've decided that, after producing Archive every single month for 20 years, I feel that it's time for a change.
"It's not an unreasonable thing to ask, I hope you will agree. However, I've been desperately keen not to just close Archive down because (I may be biased but) I feel that it fulfils a useful role within the RISC OS community.
"I am thrilled to be able to announce a new owner and editor for Archive. I didn't want to hand Archive on to just anyone who reckoned they knew how to use Impression and therefore thought they could produce a magazine. I wanted someone who was a journalist and had experience of publishing, and I have just the man for the job: Jim Nagel."
Jim has been shadowing Paul for a while now, and helping to edit and produce the pint-sized monthly magazine when Paul's freelance work became too much. Details on how to buy future subscriptions will be announced shortly.
More to follow later.
