One of my favorite issues was the one that focused on adventure games;
it had a lengthy description of the (then forthcoming) Zork parser as
well as a neat bit on David Betz' Lisp-based Advsys adventure authoring
tool. There also used to be lots of good articles on programming
language research, including stuff on Forth, various Lisp dialects
including Xlisp, and even Haskell (!) and Pop-11. (!!) And yeah, I have
to agree with Joe: the NeXT issue was one of the best issues ever. I
think I got a chub just reading about it. ;-)
