I have been going through the piles of Atari disks in my basement and making hundreds of ATRs. As far as I can tell, a lot of the things I'm finding are not online yet. (But they will be!) Here's an interesting thing I've found, and haven't found referenced on Atariage or Google:

 

The New Aladdin Collection, A Disk Publication published by Disk Publications, Inc.

 

I have volume 1.0 — Premier Issue — May 1986

and Volume 1.2 — Oct/Nov 1986

and Volume 1.3A — undated but presumably Dec 1986/Jan 1987

 

each volume one contains three double-sided disks.

 

Does anyone have other issues of this publication? E.G. Presumably there's a volume 1.1, and did it continue past Volume 1.3?

 

The ATRs for all three issues are attached. The_New_Aladdin_Volume_10_May_1986_Disk1_Side2 is missing: there was a crazy number of bad sectors on that one.

I should also mention that I have a couple issues for the Atari ST, but. . . ST's not my thing. These are copyright 1987 but don't have issue dates.

Woot! Can you make an ATR of Disk 1, Side 2? (At least? Might be best to do 'em all.)

Kevin - can you make a .zip file and attach it to the first post so folks can grab all of these in a single download?

An excellent idea. I don't know how to edit an old post, but here it is. Still missing one side of one issue.

 

They spent more than a million dollars on this content, which fits into 9MB 900KB compressed.

What a cool magazine. Wish I had heard of it back in the day. Does anyone have .st disk images of the Atari ST version?

So, what are you missing? I also have Vol 287 with 3 disks and Vol 387 with none. (? for the 8-bit, not ST)

@Kirkman - do you have the means to convert disks to .st files? I have the two ST issues pictured in http://atariage.com/...zine/?p=3070048
