|                        ATARI INTERFACE EXPANDS TO
|                     OVER 100 CLUBS, MORE DISTRIBUTORS
|
|
| Ann Arbor, MI
|
|     In this time of shrinking economies and worries  about continued Atari
| magazine support,  Unicorn Publications  is pleased to announce that Atari
| Interface is continuing to grow.
|
| User Group Expansion
| """"""""""""""""""""
|     With the  March 1991  issue, Atari  Interface increased  its number of
| Participating  User  Groups  to  over  100.  Currently, there are 105 user
| groups whose  members are  receiving Atari  Interface magazine  as part of
| their  club  benefits.    "We're  over  100 clubs now and we expect a fair
| number of additional clubs to sign up  in  the  next  month  or  so," said
| Editor Bill  Rayl.   "At least  20 more  clubs have indicated they want to
| start getting AIM for their members."
|
|     As a Participating Club, US-based user groups can have copies of Atari
| Interface magazine  delivered directly to their member's doors for only 50
| cents per issue.  Canadian and Foreign clubs can get the magazine  for the
| same low rate, plus the cost of shipping all copies to one address.
|
| More Distributors Added
| """""""""""""""""""""""
|     As  recently  announced  in  messages  on  CompuServe and GEnie, Atari
| Interface has expanded its  US distribution  to include  approximately 250
| additional Waldenbookstores.  AIM distribution to newsstands and bookstore
| chains  in  the  US,  Canada  and  overseas  is  handled  by International
| Periodical Distributors  (IPD), one of the largest world-wide distributors
| of magazines and books.  [IPD can be reached at (619) 481-5928.]
|
|     Alternative and eclectic bookstores in the US can  get Atari Interface
| from Ubiquity Distributors of Brooklyn, NY.
| [Call Ubiquity at (718) 875-5491.]
|
|     US distribution  of AIM  to Atari dealers is handled mainly by Pacific
| Software Supply, the largest US Atari distributor.
| [PSS can be reached at (805) 543-1583.]
|
|     Micro-D Distributors of Weston,  Ontario,  is  now  distributing Atari
| Interface (magazine and ST disk) to Atari dealers across Canada.  [Micro-D
| can be contacted at (416) 741-9825.]
|
|     Braden Ray Software has just signed up to bring AIM  to the Australian
| and New  Zealand market.   While  Atari Interface was already appearing on
| newsstand shelves  "down under,"  the agreement  with Braden  Ray gets AIM
| (and the ST disk) to users and Atari dealers faster.
| [Call Braden Ray at 011-61-8-390-3018.]
|
|     UK distribution  of Atari  Interface and the ST/Mega Disk of the Month
| is now handled by Bath  Publications.    According  to  Bath Publication's
| Malcolm Burridge,  "I believe  [AIM's] quality  far outweighs  that of the
| competition."  [Bath Publications can be reached at 011-44-225-840-700.]
|
|     Unicorn Publications has  been  producing  an  Atari-specific magazine
| since December 1987.  For more information, contact:
