I would gladly scan the few hardcopies I still have (not a complete set though) if someone else would host them.
My contact details are on my profile :)
The articles didn't have anything to do with the comics, but I was fascinated, and ended up buying a ZX-81, then a Commodore 64, and...well, I'm still doing it.
The later ones got more conventional.
They have Byte, too... https://archive.org/details/byte-magazine-rescans
My email is slapped on the collection page for that one if you notice something mislabeled. If yoy have Byte issues that need scanning for Archive.org, I have contacts for those kind souls as well.
Magazines are able to deliver something that blogs often can't - like pieces of work that have been refined, and then refined again by an editor. Or diverse topics that still fall within a certain discipline.
This is an itch that blogs can't seem to scratch for me.
Its tailored for PICO8, which is a 'fantasy console' in the same light as 80's 8-bit machines, but still .. its one of those 'zines that really takes you back once you get through an issue or two ..
One problem with Creative Computing is that most libraries seemed to think it was ephemeral and they got rid of their holdings in the early 1990s, so it has been really hard to find. Even my mom thought it was ephemeral and she threw out most of my collection.
My pet theory: the librarians feel they have power that way, by "curating" the collection that will presented to the peasants.
We're hoping to get libraries to join with us to make their books in remote storage available in a similar fashion.
Librarians are not power mad media moguls. Librarians and Libraries are closest the non-IT world has to open source/free software/knowledge sharing. They have always been a fantastic resource for the "peasants" as you call them.
Really, there are a whole host of reasons for deaccession of library materials that include financial, space, and other concerns that hit the bottom line.
The great thing about technology is we have the ability to collect, classify, add metadata, and make all human knowledge accessible to everyone. If only insanely long copyrights and restrictions on scanning and lending copyrighted works were not in the way.
 This is not really something a busy librarian has time for, so other methods, such as user-driven tagging and folksonomies are an interesting solution that is being tried.
But it sucks when you hear how they often don't have a good sense of the value (intellectual or otherwise) of what they cull. And it sucks if everyone makes the same judgment and all throw away our ephemera that we wish to look back, evoke memories, reveal something of our time.
E.g. something like this (the main public library in Linköping, Sweden):
rather than something like
Half-Price Books in Bellevue is more my speed. It's completely packed with books. I could putter away hours in there.
Edit: Worldcat shows 570 libraries have the magazine in their collection, and every library worth its salt can get it from them by inter library loan. So its not hard to get your hands on by a long shot.
There are many quite decent publicly accessible collections of computer magazines, though, because of the audience - other types of magazines are in a worse position.
If you can't find something, ask your librarian where it might be available. Generally they can give suggestions, and may even spend time helping you search.
In my teens had libraries contact specialist libraries and dig obscure translations of works out of vaults for me where they could have just told me sorry and pointed me to the several newer/more mainstream editions of the same work they had out (I was transcribing some books where the newer translations were still in copyright and where I was also hunting for additional forewords), despite being young enough at the time that they could've easily dismissed me as not having any "important" reasons to trouble them with asking for just those editions.
My experience is that if you're nice, most librarians love it when they are asked for something unusual by someone who clearly cares about the books.
This was my goto magazine :)
Much more code per issue than Byte, and easily modifiable games, which were great for learning.
Thanks to the Archive for scanning! If there are any issues missing, I may have them and be able to help contribute.
