                 START MAGAZINE INCREASES PAGES, STAFF
                 -------------------------------------
 
  San Francisco,  Aug. 3 -- Antic Publishing Inc. today announced that
  publication of  START Magazine  will be  suspended for  one month in
  order to  make several major editorial and circulation changes.  All
  current subscriptions will be  extended  one  month.    In addition,
  START  has  agreed  to  fulfill  the  ST-Log and Analog subscription
  obligations, doubling its circulation.
 
  When START reappears with the October 1990 issue (on sale  Sept. 1),
  it will  contain a monthly, 16-page section for Atari 8-bit computer
  owners, boosting START's pages to 124-plus.   Antic,  the publishing
  group's long-running 8-bit magazine, will cease publication.
 
  START Editor  Tom Byron  also announced  staff changes.   Jim Burton
  joins the magazine as technical editor; Rick Braden  is the  new art
  director.
 
  Burton is  a journalist  and past  START contributor with a thorough
  knowledge of GFA BASIC.  See "GDOS Printer Drivers in  GFA BASIC" in
  the January  1990 issue and "GDOS Tutorial" in the August 1990 issue
  for samples of his work.  His main responsibility will  be the START
  disk, which, beginning with the January 1991 issue, will be a strai-
  ght double-sided format.
 
  Braden comes to START  from  Portland,  Ore.,  where  he  designed a
  number of  successful regional  and national  business and technical
  journals.  In addition to his talents as a graphic  designer, Braden
  is a MIDI aficionado and ST owner.
 
  Several  popular  ST  authors  have been named contributing editors,
  with responsibility for areas  of increasing  interest to  ST users.
  The new contributing editors are:
 
           Dan Fruchey - Word Processing/Desktop Publishing
               John Russell and David Plotkin - Hardware
               Christopher Roberts - Telecommunications
 
  Jim Pierson-Perry  continues to  cover MIDI  and music, while former
  START editor Andrew Reese covers graphics.
 
   END.
