Shareware Shopper Magazines A-Power CU Amiga

Collecting Magazines [ old note ]

Of all the items that I collect I find the magazines in many ways the most rewarding. Basically, magazines offer a very valuable source of information and will show images of equipment in their original state, often showing hardware and cable attachments. Also the reviews at the time of the publication are fresh and current to that period, and not muddied by the years since.

You are often given additional magazines when you collect, as happened just this week. I received copies of `Shareware Shopper` in a batch of Amiga magazines, a publication which I had not come across before. The magazine was printed by Europress Publications and featured the PC, Amiga and Atari ST. Vol 1 No 1 dated October 1991 (1.50) sets out in detail the advantages of Shareware and Gabriel Jacobs writes ..` Apart from try-before you-buy, shareware offers other advantages over traditional commercial software. The biggest is that since there`s normally no expenditure on fancy packaging, advertising, support staff and commercial premises, the cost of registration is very low indeed... ` He goes on..` Furthermore, most shareware authors are happy to be contacted for advice or to receive suggestions, which is more than you can say about the commercial software houses.`

The magazine also carries a full page advert for Micro Mart which it says will be weekly from Issue 150 on 12th September 1991

There is a great article in the magazine about setting up your own Shareware PD Library.
