Back with a vengeance with something for a small collective of people without dragging up all Atari related comments this month, as I've been working on this for some time now and is finally out, so just giving it a little PR awareness, again if I've broken any rules, please let me know thanks.

Atari ST Gamer Magazine™ Issue 1 has finally been completed now and I present a nice preview to you all of the magazine in all it's glory, this first collectors issue of two has some great interviews, facts, and some amazing and honest Atari ST game reviews for your enjoyment plus allot more, this magazine is again another Digital publication for use on your tablets, computer and other devices and has a nice and tidy page count of 65 pages of content for you to ponder over and Issue one only costs a mere £3.50 / €4.40 / $5.79 for all this Atari ST goodness, so I hope you will support it by picking up a copy so that we can get Issue two underway and finished for a February 2015 release with even more exclusive content, interviews and reviews so Thank you for taking the time to have a look ;)

Just a mention for all who may be interested, work has begun on issue 2 of the magazine and hopefully will pack twice as much content as issue 1 did, unfortunately this will be the final ST gamer magazine to be produced as my free time is now borrowed time with working on a collection of publications that will take up my professional time.


@Fire_in_the_valley, Kieran Hawken is a gaming journalist who works for Retro Gaming Magazine, an English publication that covers all things retro, but has quite a colourful past that has cost him dearly both as a hobbyist and professional for fabrication, misdirection of information and impersonation of a been a games developer both on the zx spectrum computer and the Atari ST which has followed him around like a block of Krypton Nite around his neck and has a lot of enemies and was involved with my previous magazine Atari Gamer which damaged its reputation when the communities found out he was attached, but I wouldn't mind, the reviews were great, but because of his name been associated , I was recommended to have a disclaimer attached to the mention of the St gamer magazine series. So I hope that answers your question regarding that.


Now for all who might be interested? I'm looking for a games reviewer to include in the new issue of the magazine, all I can offer is a free copy of the magazine and some great notoriety to been part of the ST Gamer Magazine team contributing to an Atari magazine some 20 years later with full credits for your reviews or special features you'd like to write about and when it's complete and online maybe we can send few bucks for a beer or two when it throws back some revenue for the work involved , interested?


If you are, please send me a PM on here and we get the ball rolling on what's required from you, I want the make this issue even better than the first and I know that the ST is really underestimated or isn't as popular as other machines out there, I want to change this and with your help we can :)


Let me know if any of you would like to contribute to the magazine.


Thanks everybody :)
