My Thirty Years

Pacific Magazine has published Just Pretend It Isn't Me... Thirty Years As A Guidebook Writer, by David Stanley. The article explains how I got into guidebook writing in 1978 with the help of Bill Dalton, and relates a few of my experiences, including the time when I coincided with Pope John Paul II in the Solomon Islands, creating big problems for myself. I also touch on the economics of guidebook publishing in today's internet-oriented environment and my plans for the future.
