About the editor

Paul Beverley founded Archive in 1987 when the Archimedes computer was new, and for 20 years he edited it every month like clockwork. Paul’s “last and final” issue (volume 20, number 12) went to press in August 2007, whereupon all the expertise Paul had gained he let loose into a wider world of editing and proofreading.

Jim Nagel (of Abbey Press Glastonbury) succeeded him as editor, albeit with less clockwork. Jim had for many years written the Acorn column in Computer Shopper magazine and worked as a sub-editor on The Times. Jim produced issues 21:1 through 24:5, and died in 2020. His surviving family produced issue 24:6 as a tribute.

Gavin Smith is the third-generation Archive editor. He is a software developer and has been using Acorn and RISC OS machines since the Electron. You can contact him at gavin@archivemag.co.uk
