A note about Arthur Magazine's future from the editor/publisher.

Hey gang–

I am done with self-publishing Arthur, which I’ve been doing since July, 2007. It’s too much work for one person to edit, publish and manage a national magazine, month after month, year after year.

I am talking with interested parties regarding their taking over the Publisher role for Arthur Magazine.

Please stay tuned. And, subscribers: your subscriptions will be fulfilled when we resume publication. Thanks for your patience.

All love and R.I.P. Ron Asheton,

Jay Babcock
editor/publisher, Arthur Magazine

About Jay Babcock

I am the co-founder and editor of Arthur Magazine (2002-2008, 2012-13) and curator of the three Arthur music festival events (Arthurfest, ArthurBall, and Arthur Nights) (2005-6). Prior to that I was a district office staffer for Congressman Henry A. Waxman, a DJ at Silver Lake pirate radio station KBLT, a copy editor at Larry Flynt Publications, an editor at Mean magazine, and a freelance journalist contributing work to LAWeekly, Mojo, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, Vibe, Rap Pages and many other print and online outlets. An extended piece I wrote on Fela Kuti was selected for the Da Capo Best Music Writing 2000 anthology. In 2006, I was one of five Angelenos listed in the Music section of Los Angeles Magazine's annual "Power" issue. In 2007-8, I produced a blog called "Nature Trumps," about the L.A. River. Today, I live a peaceful life in the rural wilderness of Joshua Tree, California, where I am a partner in JTHomesteader.com with Stephanie Smith.

  1. sincere condolences…i will miss lounging around with new issues of arthur…we all need to adjust to this new paperless reality…at least some trees will be spared. that’s about the only upshot. sigh.

  2. I will also miss the printed Arthur.. I do believe I’m one of a few down in Mexico that reads the magazine. I was about to purchase the new issue, but will donate something. I’m a big BIG fan..Best wishes.
