Micro's Gazette was pretty much published by myself and a couple of close friends, taking over from Computer Forum magazine, so that the Spectravideo and MSX movement would not die out in Australia.
I reduced the publication down to a bi-monthly and included a lot more content.
Eventually I got a new job and passed the magazine onto another group of people.
I am missing some issues, the last couple of mine and the 1st one of the new group (I think). I have some more disks to go through, so I am hoping on finding electronic copies.
1st published in December 1988, Micro's Gazette replaced the magazine Computer Forum.
I had taken over Computer Forum during it's last issue so that it did not disappear into obscurity and got together with a group of friends to get it started.
It had a multi-colour front page - and put together using publishing software on my trusty Spectravideo SVI-738 and a 9-pin Epson printer.
Not a lot of content in the 1st issue, but it improves with each issue published.
The 2nd published issue started to get the layout a bit neater, and a few of the ongoing sections made their first appearance.Read more
The 3rd published issue had added a few more pages, and a lot more content. The ongoing articles started to hit their stride, and even the letters sections had grown to a much larger number.Read more
