The Atari Connection was the official publication of the Atari Computer division. It was a quarterly slick-format newsletter/magazine that was as much an extended sales brochure as it was an informational magazine.

As such, it was very similar to what Apple put out for their computers.

Winter, 1984 The Fine Art of Computing is not vol. 4 no. 4, it is actually issue #12, coming after fall 1983 and before spring 1984.

Note that you can verify by the issue number on the back cover.
