Ah right. Cheers. Didn't think of clicking on the image :)

HI, Thanks so much for uploading these, I have been looking for them for a long time!

I have noticed some of the links don't work (get Mega NZ file removed page).

The ones I noticed were issues:

9
10
12
13
14

If you have any spare time could you please re-upload? I'd love to read them again. Thanks!

Thank you for notifying me that these links were broken. The issues listed now have working links again. I have re-checked all other links on published issues and they are all working.

Next PDF scanned issue, issue 27 is now added on my site.

Happy reading everyone. :D

EDIT: I just realized that page 99 had been slightly rotated by the text recognition process so I have fixed this orientation and re-saved the PDF.

Same! Great read.

If anyone hasn't listened, the Maximum Powerup podcast episode 73 has an interview with Steve Merrett, who worked on ST Action for many early issues.

Thanks for the new issue. Nice to read the review of Dynasty Wars in there. One of my favorites back then. Kind of an obscure game but I was really into those Capcom conversions. I think I bought most everyone one of them :).

I am still looking for the following issues: 6, 45, 57 if anyone has these and will sell them, please contact me. You would need to make sure you can post to Australia for shipping them.

Here is a direct link to issue 28. I have had to start moving the website due to changes Google are making to now charge for hosting my domain and site:

New site hosting is online and I have re-created the ST Action magazine page and coverdisk page. Pages both have a gallery of the magazines and disks which link to the issues already published. These pages will likely evolve as I get more time but the links are now there again.

Site has a lot more flexibility than the Google G-suite legacy sites did and the links now work directly rather than Google tracking them.

I still need to re-create the Atari ST Review pages.

Thanks again! Issue 54 you requested is headed across the ocean as of today. How many more issues do you need for a set?

Thanks for that. This will be the last issue not yet scanned to my pile of issues to process. I am still looking for the following issues: 6, 45, 57 to complete my set but these are available on Atarimania, it would be good to get them and complete the scanning of the whole set of issues.

Okay, I have now added the scanned issues I have completed processing so please check the site for new ones as I have lost track of which were added since the last update here.

Thank you to @TheNameOfTheGame for sending over issue 54 from the US for me to get scanned and published. This is now on my site for downloading along with the others.

I still have about 10 issues to scan that are not yet available and then I need to work through the ones I have that are currently linked to Atarimania issues.

I am still looking for issues 6, 45 and 57. Whilst 6 and 57 are on Atarimania, it would be good to obtain and scan these if anyone has them.

We are still missing issue 45 if anyone has this one please consider scanning and providing me the scans or sending this to me. Once we have this issue then all issues will be preserved.

Nice one, liked the reviews and the cool preview for UN Squadron. I saw the ad for Apprentice on page 101. Somehow I had never noticed that game before. Looks like it might be a good one to try out.
