sell ST NEWS at Public Domain prices. You'd better send them a
letter plus some International Reply Coupons to get to know their
stock and prices first. The other distributors (i.e. those with
no asterisk, in case you're daft) only need to receive a disk +
reply postage + reply envelope (and a donation now and then). For
the ones selling at PD prices, please first inquire what they
People in Holland and in countries where no official distributor
exists are invited to send disk(s) plus sufficient reply postage
to the ST NEWS correspondence address.
If you have any complaints about them (like them not sending
your disks back at all) please write to me so that I can start to
attempt finding new ones. This sounds a bit crude, I know, but
there is no other way to establish whether they're still

The text of the articles is identical to the originals like they appeared in old ST NEWS issues. Please take into consideration that the author(s) was (were) a lot younger and less responsible back then. So bad jokes, bad English, youthful arrogance, insults, bravura, over-crediting and tastelessness should be taken with at least a grain of salt. Any contact and/or payment information, as well as deadlines/release dates of any kind should be regarded as outdated. Due to the fact that these pages are not actually contained in an Atari executable here, references to scroll texts, featured demo screens and hidden articles may also be irrelevant.
