I lost 8 subscribers after that newsletter, although I am pleased to say we are now over the total number when it went out and almost at 700.

So, On The ZX Spectrum #11 has been and gone and thanks to a couple of notable mentions, subs are well on their way to 800 now.

Friday 03rd May: On The ZX Spectrum #12
Friday 10th May: On The ZX Spectrum: Nextra #2
Friday 31st May: On The ZX Spectrum #13

We welcomed another two Magic Knights last week, so here's what paid Patreons can expect over the coming weeks:-

On The ZX Spectrum Magic Knight Extra #8
Special Competition - a nice boxed rare Sinclair item will be up for grabs
On The ZX Spectrum: Nextra Extra (oooh that sounds nice, doesn't it!)
The Magic Knight Tour of my display - the first in a series of short videos looking at the Spectrum games in my display.

Basically, it's taking over my life :lol:

This week on On The ZX Spectrum, I interviewed a coder behind many games for various budget software houses in the 80s. Looking forward to putting the feature together for On The ZX Spectrum #12, out on the 3rd May.
