Magic's Writing History

Written by Magic


This article features article-headlines of some of the best articles written by Magic of Nah-kolor. (Get the diskmags to read them :-)

Please mind that I could not remember all articles I have ever written so this list is by far not complete. However most diskmags mentioned in this text contain far more articles by me than the article-headlines presented here. (To state an example, in all THING issues together are more than 50 articles by me.) Download the specific magazine(s) from some FTP site to read them all. Especially the magazines I was main or co-editor from.

Furthermore, you need an Amiga to run these diskmags.

Function Chronology

Through the years I have been MAIN- and CO-EDITOR from several diskmagazines. However, the only diskmag I main-edited from the start to finish was THING by APPLAUSE. This during the end of 1993, and whole 1994. Later on also a final issue was released in mid 1995. I was main-editor of:

 Thing......... All issues
 Chit Chat..... issue 14 and 15
 Showtime...... issue 4

These magazines feature ALOT of articles by me. I was co-editor of:

 RAW........... issue 9 and issue 10 (issue 10 was online)
 Upstream...... issue 11 (never got finished)

In BUZZ issue 8 I had an own CORNER called MAGICIAL MOMENTS.

I cooperated on certain articles together with some of the TOP writers in the Amiga scene: Mop, RokDaZone, Fishwave, Blitter, Mount, Astro, Sixpack and Sane. The ones I remember are marked with * sign.. I am sure there are more articles which I did together with another writer but my mEmory isn't that good these days. :)

In 1992 I wrote for a DUTCH only magazine called 'Jong, Snel & Wild', in 1993 I also started to write for ENGLISH magazines.. I was also the first Editor in the AMIGA scene to release a 100% AGA diskmagazine.. This was Chit Chat issue 15 (!) (Aga code by Protec/Mirage Aga lay-out painted by Danny, also several AGA cliparts)
