The Reviewer Rob Interview

Reviewer editor Rob, the give and take…

I’ve turned down a few interviews, on camera and/or questions by email, for various reasons. The main one being a type of shyness. I just always preferred to be the one ‘behind the camera,’ so to speak. So up to now I’ve always just declined the request or found a way to avoid it.

But our Tash Jones has been contributing to Reviewer as a news and feature writer on and off for a while now and she was persistent in pressing me for this interview, saying it was for an assignment for her studies at University. So I eventually relented.

A Snippet:

When (1996, I’m assuming) did you start Reviewer?

“Yes, finally at about the age of of thirty I decided the only real way I would be able to do what I really want in print was if I started my own paper. In the summer of 1996 the Republican national convention came to San Diego and I remember wanting to get that first free issue of Reviewer Magazine out on the street in the coffee shops, bars and stores before all the big wigs arrived. The convention being in town was only a coincidence. I had set out to do Reviewer long before I learned of it.”

You can read it all in the Editor’s Blog HERE.

Above: An image from Wikipedia’s entry for The pen is mightier than the sword. It’s attributed as being of Cardinal Richelieu by H. A. Ogden, illustrating the play Richelieu; or the Conspiracy, printed on page 138 of The Works of Edward Bulwer Lytton (Lord Lytton), published by P.F. Collier, New York, 1892.

True, This! —
Beneath the rule of men entirely great,
The pen is mightier than the sword. Behold
The arch-enchanters wand! — itself a nothing! —
But taking sorcery from the master-hand
To paralyse the Cæsars, and to strike
The loud earth breathless! — Take away the sword —
States can be saved without it!
