A product directory listing new hardware, software and books for 8-bit microcomputers.

Does mention of Commodore 64, Vic20, Sinclair ZX81 and Spectrum, BBC Micro, Acorn electron or Dragon 32 raise your pulse? Did you enjoy the heady feeling of potential and unlimited possibility at the sight of a BASIC flashing cursor? Did you love working so directly with the hardware? Maybe you're new to 8-bit computing and discovering these things for the first time.

There are some amazing people producing new accessories, software and games for these computers and I aim to support them and promote 8-bit / retro computing by listing them here.
