(The need to master the game was far more significant than whether the game contained violent material.)

I have been using electronic mail and online services since the early 1980s, with accounts on Prestel, BT Telecom Gold, The Source, CompuServe, AOL and Cix. The Cix account is still going, after more than 20 years.
I have used, reviewed and frequently owned a wide range of microcomputers including the Apple IIe, Atari 800 and ST, Sinclair Spectrum, Commodore Amiga, Acorn Archimedes, Apple Macintosh, and an embarrassing number of DOS and Windows desktops and notebooks.
I have a BA in English Language and Literature from the University of Birmingham and an MA from the University of British Columbia, Vancouver.
