VIC-NIC News

Postby allenhuffman » Fri May 21, 2010 11:52 pm

Greetings. I once had a program published/printed in a small newsletter magazine called the VIC-NIC NEWS. I can't find any reference to it on the internet other than a scan of another magazine that once reprinted a "PHONE HOME!" game listing.

Does anyone know where I could find scans?

Specifically, I am looking for a game program listing I submitted back around 1981 or 1982. I believe it was called "Eggs" and it was a "catch the falling objects" game. It was my first published program/article when I was about 12.

I was able to track down some information on this newsletter. I also found the names of the couple that ran the FOX 20 tape magazine, and a notice in a 1984 newsletter of them shutting down due to damage from Hurricane Alicia that swept through Houston that year. (I sure remember that one; we were without power for a week.)
