Lol, great letter and response! Love seeing this stuff, a mate on another forum was in Amstrad Action and has a picture of himself holding the magazine.

I once had a letter printed in EDGE. Cannot remember which issue and all my copies are in storage so I cannot look for it. They did an article regarding older systems (might of been about old mags) in some form or another and I gave them grief for not even a mention about the CPC and Amstrad action. They did reply saying they should do something regarding cover mounts as they were one of the best for it at the time. Saying that I think that would make a great article in the mag. Cannot remember if anything has been done on cover mounts?

I've had a few printed in Amiga mags. One was a picture for the monthly Amiga Format gallery (I drew the Alien 3 poster in Deluxe Paint), another one put my mad Red Dwarf comedy MOD file on a cover disk or CD, and there have been some standard letters.

I've had a letter printed in the Fortean Times (something to do with the chupacabra), which was an exciting day in my life.

I am only selling spare issues I found I had, and they are from much later on. My main collection remains locked away in storage.

Funny letter and reply though, nice one.

I should probably hunt down those issues of Retro Gamer that I got into, I sold all my rg issues ages back but kept the issues of Official Nintendo Magazine that I got in.
