> interview on Sunday. Its former publisher, Glenn Sabin, has sold the 
> magazine's brand and assets to Madavor Media, a Boston-based company 
> that publishes specialized magazines on collectibles and sports. An 
> August issue will be published, and arrangements are being made to pay 
> contributors what they are owed, Mr. Mergner said. The magazine will 
> retain its managing editor, Evan Haga, and intends to use the same 
> contributors. "Our only plans are to figure out how to do things 
> better," Mr. Mergner added. "This isn't an opportunity for us to clean 
> house."
