Fortean Times

The joint editors of the Fortean Times, the "journal of strange
phenomena", have decided to step down after 30 years at the

Founder Bob Rickard and his co-editor, Paul Sieveking, will
still play an important role at the offbeat magazine but are
handing over the day-to-day running to the managing editor,
David Sutton.

Their departure comes as the magazine, whose pages are routinely
filled with tales of UFOs, crop circles and apparitions of the
Virgin Mary, celebrates its 30th birthday.

Sutton has promised to "introduce more readers to the Fortean
Times' unique mix of weird world news, in-depth reporting and
research into the more outlandish corners of human experience".

Sieveking will continue to oversee the "avalanche of incoming
news", while Rickard is moving into a more advisory role,
extending the magazine's website and working on its archives.

The Fortean Times was founded in 1973 to carry on the work of
Charles Fort, a paranormal investigator who died in 1932, and
now has a circulation of more than 29,000 copies.

The Fortean Times and Bizarre made up part of the package when
John Brown Publishing sold Viz to I Feel Good, the publishing
company run by former Loaded editor James Brown in May 2001.
