Maclin and his wife Karen were among the founders of Caelum Et Terra and served as assistant editor and art director/managing editor, respectively, from 1991 to the fall issue of 1995, at which time their family life became too busy to handle these duties.  Maclin wrote the “Last Writes” column in the journal, as well as many book reviews and articles.  Karen Horton is largely credited for obtaining the striking artwork and calligraphy used in the magazine and was responsible for most of the layout. The Hortons continue to live in Fairhope, Alabama.  (note: all articles below are by Maclin unless noted)
