    Stuart Williams’ scribblings and ST Update – 30 Years After 

    Would you believe it, I’ve been writing, getting published – and getting paid for it – for thirty years this year?

    The first ever commercial magazine to publish my work was ST Update, a British home computer magazine dedicated to the Atari ST and published by Sunshine Publications in London. Sadly, ST Update is long gone and little known these days, at least as far as online sources is concerned.

    But, as luck would have it, ST Update itself is also thirty years old – this month! So I decided to mark the anniversary of the magazine’s first issue by writing about it, and making a copy of the pilot issue available to download online, through the pages of Retro Computing News. I’ve even made contact with the original advertising manager of the magazine, Jon Beales, who has been very helpful with the article.

    The article now online is part one of an exclusive two-part feature with the story of ST Update magazine’s inception ‘straight from the horse’s mouth’ – plus a very special download to celebrate the 30th birthday of ST Update. Please go check it out via the link below!

    A little bit of exciting site news! Due to an expected increase in more general retro computing content, which has already begun, this blog will shortly change name to Stuart Williams’ Micro Musings to allow for a broader focus, and the primary URL will be micromusings.net – this has already been activated. The original domain amigameditations.com will be switched off after 18 May 2017.

    The Amiga content will of course remain a large part of the site, but I need to add my other rediscovered scribblings as well as some new ‘musings’, so this seems the best way to proceed. Hopefully, you will in future find even more things of interest here than before!
