 START MAGAZINE CEASES PUBLICATION
 Story by John Nagy

 After days of conflicting rumors, it was confirmed by START Magazine
 staff members today that the bi-monthly Atari magazine START will NOT
 publish another issue until further notice.
 
 "STart has suspended publication pending a sale of the magazine," said
 Editor in Chief Tom Byron.  A sale is said to be in the works with
 unidentified parties, and no timetable is being discussed publicly.
 
 Byron also said that the next issue, the June/July edition, is complete
 and was waiting for printing when he got the news today that the
 suspension was in effect.
 
 The resolution of the fates of subscribers and the many writers to whom
 STart has owed moneys dating back to mid 1990 is not known or
 predictable at this point.  If STart is sold, it may be that those owed
 will be paid from the revenues, or the new owner may assume the
 liabilities of the company.  A third possibility is that there would be
 a liquidation and sale of assets held by STart itself, which may be
 negligible.
 
 Z*Net will continue to follow this story which is of great concern to
 the entire Atari community.  STart is the last commercial "slick"
 magazine for the Atari in the U.S.A.  It will leave behind only Atari
 Explorer, Atari's owned house magazine, and newspaper-type publications
 like AtariUser and ST INFORMER.
 
 Look for followup on the STart story in Z*NET #91-21, this weekend on
 telecommunication services and bulletin boards world-wide.
