An early issue of Creative Computing

Creative Computing was one of the earliest of the general personal computer magazines, and one of the most popular. Initially running 6 issues a year, the magazine catered to the programmable calculator community as well as the users of early PCs. By the end of the 1970s the magazine was being published monthly and was dedicated exclusively to PCs.

Early on, Creative Computing was known for publishing program listings, usually in BASIC, that gave readers an opportunity to key in the programs for free software.

The magazine was also an excellent source for reviews of early systems.

Did anyone else get the CC Bionic Toad T Shirt? I wore that shirt until it it fell apart. I loved it. I also think that I bought an original D&D game that was advertised in the back of the magazine. I still have the game, and in absolute mint condition. I was a reactor operator at ANO, and could not find any interested folks in Arkansas in those days ( now I thank my stars). I sure wish that the old shirt would make make a come back like those IMSAIs and all.

I loved creative computing. I think I have their 3 books. I finally subscribed in the last year or two of its existance. Still have those issues. David Ahl would then take over Atari Explorer and make it a good mag, until Atari canned him.

I'm trying to find a Creative Computing magazine from 1980, but I'm not sure which month. It was sometime May-Nov, and it had a dragon on the cover. If anyone has access to check and let me know which month that was, I'd appreciate it. -I haven't found the covers scanned online yet. :) Thanks!

I attended Keithley Jr High School in Tacoma Washington, and Leo Christopherson was one of my teachers. I remember playing beta versions of Voyage of the Valkyre (perhaps Flight?) back on the TRS-80's. I also rushed out and bought a cassette copy of Dancing Demon. I also remember playing with Mr Christopherson's Atari 800. That was a cool system back in the day.

If you by chance read this, a big Hello Mr. Christopherson. :)

I'm looking for a program that was published in Creative Computing that generated mazes on your printer. It was ASCII art and you could print simple mazes for your kids to play with. It used the characters :---: :---+ etc. Also in one of those issues was a routine that generated ASCII art out of math formulas. Anyone finding either of these programs would surely gain my favor and an autographed original copy of my Qmodem for DOS program manual! Thanks in advance. John Friel

I found the creative computing article on Leo Christopherson's celeste music. It is in the reference section of the Vancouver Public Library, (vancouver BC Canada), 6 issues each in each hardcover bound volume. I think the library has all of the issues from the 80's. Leo Christopherson is alive and well, living in Spokane, Washington. Thanks for readers who tried to help me out...
