Quanta Magazine

Postby Martin_Head » Mon Oct 08, 2018 10:43 am

I'm wondering if I have missed an issue or two of the Quanta magazine.

I have definitely got Volume 35, Issue 1. Feb/March/April 2018. Is there any more?

I know that there are/were problems with the lack of an editor. Just wondering if my copies got lost in the post.

I think it is no longer being produced. It was a tough loss to overcome.

Volume 35, Issue 2, Arrived today.

I'm guessing its just very late, rather than some nice Quanta person sending me a replacement, As the copy date on the inside back page says to send in things for the Aug/Sept/Oct issue before 5th Nov 2018

Well, I'm a bit "arm's length" from Quanta Committee at the moment because of my own circumstances in the last 12 months, so I can't reply in an "official" capacity. Technically, I resigned as News Editor some time ago because of those circumstances, but continue to do what I can on an occasional basis, and my name is still listed in the magazine as News Editor.

It's quite clear from the Editorial columns (written by John Southern, who edited this issue, and Sarah Gilpin, Chair of Quanta) that it is mainly the lack of a regular editor following the death of Lee Privett, coupled with inadequate numbers of articles to some degree. John Southern described his "excessive work hours" and both appealed for someone to step forward to the role of Editor.

I suppose the positive in all this is that I was able to contribute 23 pages of news for the magazine (although some of it is late and out of date given that this is the issue dated up to July 2018), showing that there is still a suprisingly high level of activity on the QL scene in 2018. I've also already been able to contribute many pages of news towards the next issue already.

Shamefully I've not written anything in ages, but I'm still on with my big restructuring of systems (and other junk). Getting there though! Hoping to pick it up over winter.
