FEATURED WRITERS
Eric Shackle says he's been a compulsive writer ever since gaining his first job as a cadet/cub reporter in 1937. Now 90, he is OMNI's oldest reporter. He has written thousands of stories for newspapers around the world, and more recently for online publications. In 1999 he founded "Life Begins at 80" which presents 500 of his articles. He is copy editor of Anu Garg's US-based free daily newsletter, A Word A Day.
