I have, through great difficulty and extensive looking through the magazine, compiled a list of Editors of Zzap!64/Commodore Force. I present the list to you below...

1: Chris Anderson
No. 1 - No. 3
May 1985 - July 1985

2: Roger Kean
No. 4 - No. 17
August 1985 - September 1986

3: Gary Penn
No. 18 - No. 28
October 1986 - August 1987

4: Ciaran Brennan
No. 29 - No. 31
September 1987 - November 1987

5: Julian Rignall
No. 32 - No. 39
December 1987 - July 1988

6: Gordon Houghton
No. 40 - No. 50
August 1988 - July 1989

7: Stuart Wynne
No. 51 - No. 80
August 1989 - January 1992

8: Phil King
No. 81
February 1992

9: Lucy Hickman
No. 82 - 83
March 1992 - April 1992

10: Steve Shields
No. 84 - No. 99/CF9
May 1992 - September 1993

11: James Price
No. 100/CF10 - No. 106/CF16
October 1993 - March 1994

12: Gordon Houghton
No. 107
March 2002

13: Rob de Voogd
DEF Tribute
April 2005

A Note on Editorial Choices: I chose, according to the issue itself, the person that wrote the Editorial. As I see it, if the editorial was written by you, you are the Editor, which explains why Hickman is only credited for two issues (despite the complications of the Managing Editor position)

Rob de Voogd is credited for the DEF Tribute, which though not an actual numbered issue, was produced like an Issue of Zzap!64 and in the colophon he was credited as Editor, so he is included.

I believe that I have created the definitive list of Editors of Zzap!64/Commodore Force. Geez, it really was something of a soap opera what with all the editorial changes an' all...

There was a lot of people given a go of the hot seat!

Only two editors really stayed a good while, Stuart Wynne and Steve Shields.

Yup. The real question... Who will become number fourteen and add their name to this deified list?

RESET magazine are planning to mark 30 years of ZZAP with a special edition.

It would be great to get in touch with as many of these editors as possible. If you are on the list or can help me, get in touch.

I imagine most on Facebook these days. I guess Ciaran Brennan or Chris might be the harder ones to get in touch with, although Rob did with the latter.

James Price seemed a bit traumatised by his experience on Commodore Force ( ;-) ) but should be contactable. he was on here many a moon ago talking about the end of CF etc.
