Does anybody know how I can get a copy/scan/download of this publication from 1995 Dragonsoft. 60 pages
Author: Simon Avery and Debby Howard.
It's for the 8-bit microcomputers + Gilsoft Quill text adventure program
I contacted Simon but he doesn't have it nor Debby's contact details.


Regards,
catventure/Phil.

Congrats Catman.
I remember fondly the old days when I used "The Quill" myself...

Seems to have been aimed at the homebrew adventurers and indeed was advertised in some of those mags that were still around in the early nineties eg: Adventure Probe, Red Herring, Syntax etc.. It's good to have it in the archive though as it is a piece of Quill history and I notified Simon Avery (one of the authors) that we had obtained it. He didn't have a copy so was chuffed to see it again after all of these years! Although he insists Debby Howard did most of the work on it.
Simon's adventures can be found on his site:
