Welcome to issue 85 - the Christmas
C
issue. You'll probably notice a new ad
in
h this ish - one with Games Master written all
r
over it. Why are we advertising Games Master
i telly programme? Well, were not. Future,
the
s
home of YS, has got a brand new mag that's
t
edited by none other Jim Douglas. Any bells
m
ringing? Well, there should be - he used to
a Sinclair User! Also on the team is another
edit
s Spec-chum - James Leach. (Don't know
old
g
where they picked him up from!) With that
r
background it has to be a beaut mag.
e That's enough about other mags, back to
e
YS. (Hurrah!) This month we've got all the
t
usual games and letters and techy bits plus
i
something very different altogether. It's a
n
feature all about a software house. Jim Scott
g
from Beyond Belief came along to the Shed
s
with a basketful of games and news and
,
photos of his office in Higham Ferrers,
S
Northamptonshire... Crikey. I thought Jon's
p
desk was untidy!

would like to wish you an incredibly happy

Christmas and a decidedly spiffy New Year.
