With the September issue, we are all aware that fall is on its
way. Just as the leaves will be changing, there will be changes at
Stemgas Publishing. Beginning with the next issue, Gas Engine
Magazine will join a new family, known as Ogden Publications. Ogden
is the home of Grit, Capper’s, Mother Earth News, Farm
Collector, and John Deere Tradition.
Your new editor will be Leslie McDaniel, a highly capable person
who will see that everything runs smoothly.
This magazine, along with Iron Men Album and our annual Show
Directory, will be moving to Topeka, Kansas, during the early part
of August. By next month, there should be a new masthead with all
the phone numbers and addresses that will guide you in your
communication with GEM.
Putting together issues of GEM for the last twenty one years has
been a great joy for me and for the others on our staff. The
contact with our subscribers, authors and advertisers has always
been interesting and usually fun. As the magazine moves to a new
home, we have confidence that all of you will continue to nurture
and support it. We wish the new owners every possible success.
