PostSubject: RESIGNING AS EDITOR OF UFO MATRIX   Thu Jul 14, 2011 12:07 pm

Dear friends and colleagues,

This is just a quick note to inform you that as of today July 14th, I have resigned as editor of UFO MATRIX magazine. I don't want to go into the reasons behind this at this moment in time but I will provide further details in due course to those that are interested.

I would like to thank everyone for their kind support over this last 12 months and for the many kind comments concerning the great quality of UFO MATRIX magazine. It has been a pleasure working on it and I am proud to say I was its editor, but all good things must come to an end unfortunately. I would like to thank all of our colunists and contributors for making the magazine a first class publication. Without them it would simply not have been possible.

My interest in the UFO subject continues and health permitting I will still be involved as much as I can in this enigmatic subject. I have several long term writing plans in the pipeline which I am looking forward to a great deal.


Yours sincerely,


Philip Mantle.

You can't step in the same river twice and not even once if you're paying attention, but done is done and what's passed is in the past. I offer my hand in sincere friendship, Sir. No harm or foul if it's batted away. Extended still.

PostSubject: Re: RESIGNING AS EDITOR OF UFO MATRIX   Sat Jul 16, 2011 2:55 pm

Many thanks for these kind words. I am proud of being the editor of UFO MATRIX magazine and it is a publication that I literally put my heart and soull into. In 1999 at the age of 41 I suffered a near fatal heart attack. In 2010 I was diagnosed with heart failure. It got to the point at the end of 2010 that it was touch and go whether I lived or died as my condition had deteriorated. Fortunately I had a pacemaker fitted in December 2010 and it literally saved my bacon. When I came out of hospital after having had my pacemaker fitted I was still quite ill but I literally sat by my PC and dictated the completion of that particular issue of UFO MATRIX to my partner Christine. Did I get a 'well done' or a 'thank you' from the owners/publishers of UFO MATRIX ? Not a word.

I have been informed by the owners/publishers of UFO MATRIX that it is to cease publication after the next issue, an issue I finished editing for them by the way. This decision was made after I resigned. This gives me no pleasure at all. While I have nothing but contempt for the owners/publishers of UFO MATRIX I have no desire to see the publication cease. I will not go into any detail here why I resigned but I have informed many friends and colleagues in private the reasons behind my resignation.

My hope would be that a decent publisher could buy UFO MATRIX from its current owners and continue to publish it. I doubt that will happen but who knows ? It has been a pleasure working on this magazine as its editor. I have made many fiends along the way, and a few enemies (smiles) but my interest in this puzzling and enigmatic subject still continues and as one door closes another one opens.

Regards,


Philip Mantle.

Bummer Phillip. I am at present reading your latest issue. I really enjoyed the article by Scott Corrales.

Hopefully somebody will come along to pick up the magazine as you suggest. Best wishes for your projects and your health! Cool

Thank you Mike, much appreciated. I now have also been diagnosed with leaking heart valves and will be seeing the cardiologist at my local hospital next Monday. Despite my health problems, and without sounding big-headed, I can edit UFO MATRIX with my eyes closed.

It is my hope that the magazine will carry on and if it does, and a new editor is found, I wish him/her the best of luck because they are going to need it I can assure you.. As for the magazines owners/publishers, I cannot say any more on the advice of my legal advisor.

Regards,


Philip.

I think editors all need luck! Just judging by poor Nancy having to edit me.

BTW, Scott is totally awesome!

Hello Philip,

I wish you good health and a quick and successful recovery. I also look forward to more input from you here and maybe elsewhere. You seem to have taken much pride in your contribution to the UFO Matrix Magazine and the schedule must have been tense at times. In the meantime concentrating on your health will help assure that your interests in the long run may once again get your undivided attention and add tou the enjoyment of your life.

Here's to you and Christine for your success in your treatments and follow -ups. As one who's been there tremendous gratitude is in store for you both and that is only the start! Bless you both.

With sincere regards, glider.

Thank you for these kind words but unfortunately there is no cure for the heart conditions from which I suffer. Any treatment, medication or surgery I have is nothing more than a puncture repair kit I'm sorry to say. But, I still have a smile on my face and I do indeed take great pride in the work I did on UFO MATRIX magazine. I have quite a few plans for the future and I just keep my fingers crossed that the doctors can patch me up for long enough to see them through.

Regards,


Philip.

I have now been informed that UFO MATRIX will not be ceasing publication. I have no problem with that. It was never my intention or desire to see the magazine close, my only beef is with its owners/publishers. I have no idea who the new editor might be but whoever it is I wish them luck as I know they are going to need it.

Regards,


Philip.

I used to run a magazine down under and eventually sold it after four years - 48 editions. Was amazing to see the first editorial after the sale, I could have sworn that I was public enemy number 1.

Hope you keep busy.

Cheers

Healings of Atlantis up-date: This is to inform you that the publishers of my last two books (Healings of Atlantis) and the publisher of UFO MATRIX, PARANORMAL & MINDSCAPE magazines, have failed to respond to my request via the small claims court for payment of royalties on my two books. I have therefore asked the court to make a judgement against them. Since I resigned as editor of UFO MATRIX magazine I have been contacted by a wide range of people informing me that they too are allegedly owed money by HoA. I of course cannot confirm this but would simply say that if you are owed money via HoA that you seriously consider your own claim via the small claims court. I will keep you informed of any developments and please feel free to re-post this message.

Suggest you edit your post mate. As someone with a legal background, I can suggest that if you don't the editor should. You're leaving yourself wide open mate. I won't say more than that. Try and move on mate.

You're game mate and so are the editors here. I wouldn't be able to sleep at night knowing how much a post like this could cost me financially. Then again, I'm not captain of the boat.

You are of course correct, I should have used the word allegedly. Edited accordingly. Nevertheless, the fact is that I have submitted a claim in the UK via the small claims couirt which is proceeding.

Philip.

I won't lecture you or the absent administrators about the law, but I will try to clarify. Defamation law is nearly universal. The elements:

1. The material is published.
2. The material may lower opinion of the identified person by his peers (in law his, he, her, she are interchangeable)
3. And of course the material must be defamatory.

Like I said no lecture, but it doesn't matter if it's true.

Second cause of action.

Negligent statement causing economic loss.

Complicated area of law that I can't go into now because of my level of intoxication.

Mate, you've got my email addy, talk to me but don't bust your butt on this.

Cheers

Rob

I was amazed to discover today that my publisher HEALINGS OF ATLANTIS has paid at least one of its authors. So how come the can't pay me as well ?

It is true that they haven't paid me as per our contract. It is true that I have made a claim against them via the small claims court.

They have not paid other authors as well, that too is true.

If they would simply pay me and provide a royalty statement I'd disappear and leave them be but so far the have refused to answer even my solicitor ????????

Regards,

Philip.
