Here's a little personal tidbit very few people know: I was briefly the editor of Fate magazine. BoingBoing has a reminiscence, but I could tell you much, much crazier stories. (Until recently, Fate was published by the biggest New Age publisher in America, Llewelyn Books, which is based in St. Paul. You have no idea how nutso that place was to work. Upon meeting you, the first thing colleagues would ask is "What's your sign?" I would change my answer every time.) Most newsstands still carry Fate, which is somewhat extraordinary.
