We're willing to bet there will be no discerning Acorn Electron owner who has not heard of the Electron User magazine. Running for a mammoth 82 issues, and beginning life as a pull-out section of The Micro User mag, Electron User proved it could be "all things to all men". It had interesting articles, informative (if sometimes a little overexuberant) reviews, type-ins with a professional feel and a (very suspect) news and software chart.

As it was the most popular magazine for the Acorn Electron, it is

The Full Contents Of Each & Every EU Magazine - In Spreadsheet Format!
not difficult to find either individual, or even complete collections of, Electron User magazines up for sale. More difficult to track down are its cover tapes, which were not supplied with copies bought from the newsagents' shelf but were supplied free to anyone who was a mail order subscriber. There were even cover discs for each issue supplied by a third company (one ACP/Pres) which are even rarer.

Fortunately, the complete collection of Electron User magazines have been scanned by our tireless entourage of fans and are presented here in their entirety. Simply double-click one of the thumbnails below to jump to each individual issue. But don't bother typing in all the programs - companion discs are available over in the Electron User catalogue of the PD World section.
