I have "The Best of Creative Computing" volumes 1-3 by David Ahl as well as
many issues of the magazine. For some reason I was able to discard all of
my IEEE and CACM stuff, but I couldn't bear to let those go. I also have a
bunch of isses of 80 Micro and Popular Computing. Unfortunately, all of
these items are currently inaccessible due to my house remodel. If you
want me to look up anything, let me know in about a month or two...
I also have almost every issue of the first 10 years of Byte. Other than
EBay, anyone know a good way to turn these into cash?
