Personal Computer Age was another publication dedicated to the IBM Personal Computer. It was a smaller and lesser known publication then it's main competition (mainly PC and PC World) although it did offer more technical content. In the end, however, that was not enough to save it.

I'm pretty sure I have the complete run but if you are aware of any issues after volume 3, number 5 please let me know.

I was the Production Manager at the magazine, and then Art Director, as well, during that final era. I think I've still got some issues tucked deeply into storage. I'll check.

Hello Leigh,

I still have all of the issues listed above. I'm not sure when the magazine stopped publication, but I haven't seen any issues after the May 1984 one.

Just wanted to thank you for remembering PC Age. I was the education editor. Do you still have the actual copies of PC Age?
