Brigitte Van Reuben

Post by Iain »

I have some terrible news from my visit to Roger and Oli a few weeks ago..

It seems that another staff member didn't exist, i.e. Brigitte Van Reuben! :-o

It was just Roger wearing a wig! :) They decided to put some of the art they received in the magazine and needed an art critic.

I'm beginning to wonder if any of the Zzap staff were actual real living people... ;-)

Hehe, I'd always guessed from the name that it was probably an alias...

This surely miust be from an era (read issue 50 upwards) when I still bought Zzap just because it was Zzap and not because I read it or something?
Once again I emerge from beneath a massive pile of paper which makes my desk groan to bring you the world’s most amazing posts.

Nope, was around issue 20's time.

Looking at the staff writers for issue 18:

Julian Rignall (real)
Richard Eddy (real)
Lloyd Mangram (not real)
Sean Masterson (real)
Brigitte Van Reuben (not real)
Paul Sumner (not really real!)

3 real versus 3 not real! Quite mad really.

How on earth could I have missed this? :shock:

No-one could blame Chris Anderson for leaving with all that non-existing staff around. Imagine a staff meeting. "Hey, where's everybody? Oh...wait!" :D
