Discovered(?) The New Aladdin Collection disk magazine

Recommended Posts

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.

I have a copy of issue 1.0

 

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

W00t, I found the editor-in-chief and interviewed him for the podcast.

Wow, your hitting some home runs this week.

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)
