Until Sinclair, the British computer scene was strictly a hobbyists-only affair. The huge success of the ZX81 and Spectrum changed all that, encouraging a massive boom as dozens of new computers were rushed onto the market. To cater for the great variety of home computers which followed the Sinclair machines, a huge number of magazines were produced - as early as December 1983 there were more than 70 nationally-distributed magazines. (Today the figure is only about half that.)
The Sinclair machines had by far the largest share of the 8-bit computer market in Britain - about 45% - so, not surprisingly, there were many magazines for Sinclair users. The best-known were CRASH (1984-92), Sinclair User (1982-92) and Your Spectrum / Sinclair (1983-94).
But there were many other magazines too. The following is a list of those dedicated to the Sinclair machines. (NB: many other magazines - for instance, Computer & Video Games and Personal Computer World - have covered Sinclair-related matters, but are or have been multi-format magazines rather than being dedicated purely to Sinclair.)
