Eight Bit Adventurer

Not all those who wander are lost…

I’m sorry that it’s a been a while since I last posted on this blog, but thankfully the good news is that this is not just because I’ve been snoring away in front of the cauldron, but because there’ve been a lot more exciting things bubbling up here at ye olde Wizard’s Tower than eye of newt since the end of November!

Firstly, there’s been the publication just before Christmas of my first Stuart Williams’s Adventure Trail column, wearing my pointy hat as Adventure Editor, in the new Crash Annual 2018 for Sinclair ZX Spectrum fans, from Fusion Retro Books. Thankfully, Adventure Trail has been well-received, so I was able to breathe a sigh of relief, and the whole book is absolutely fantastic, so I can’t recommend it too highly.

Then, after a debilitating attack of wizard-flu over the festive season, there was more writing which I needed to complete for my next column in Eight Bit magazine issue 5, so there’s been even more to do!  Now, more good news is that I’ve been invited to not only continue as Adventure Editor for the 2019 Crash Annual, with more space no less, but also to take on the same role for the all-new ZZap! 64 Annual for Commodore 64 enthusiasts!

And, yet another thing, as some of you reading this may know, I used to write for the late, much lamented Amiga User International magazine, which closed back in 1997.  Well, I’ve now launched a new Amiga User International website in tribute to the print magazine, which will combine features from both AUI and Commodore Computing International with new articles and news on the retro Amiga scene. If you’re a Commodore Amiga fan, please do check it out!  There’s a lot more to do there as well as on this blog, so I’m going to be busy for a long time to come.

In any case, dear reader, I’m back, at least for a while, and you can expect a few updates, especially after Eight Bit magazine issue 5 is published (real soon now)!

As usual, watch this space!

More anon,

Stuart Williams

    I am looking forward to new contributions from you. 🙂 And I understand, obsolete computer entertainment is a serious business!
