Publishing Veteran Joins Free Inquiry

Lewis "Luke" Vaughn has joined the staff of Free Inquiry as Executive Editor, charged with giving the secular humanist magazine a thorough face-lift and doubling its circulation in three years. Vaughn comes to the Council for Secular Humanism from Rodale Press in Emmaus, Penn.. There, he was the longtime managing editor of Prevention magazine, a successful personal health title with more than ten million readers. Vaughn is also the author or editor of several how-to books and is co-author (with Theodore Schick) of two college philosophy texts, most recently How to Think About Weird Things.

Vaughn's initial plans for Free Inquiry include a visual makeover, a stronger emphasis on special-focus sections, and a more explicit mix of features in each issue for readers who may be new to secular humanism.

Tim Madigan has been promoted to Editor. Paul Kurtz, founder of the magazine, has assumed the title of Editor in Chief.

In its seventeenth year of publishing, the quarterly Free Inquiry is already the United States' largest-circulation secular humanist magazine. "I'm eager to build on Free Inquiry's strengths and enhance its usefulness as the flagship of the secular humanist movement," said Vaughn. The first issue reflecting Free Inquiry's new design philosophy will be the Winter 1997-98 issue, published on December 12.
