Your Spectrum

Published for two years between 1984 and 1986, Your Spectrum magazine focused on the ZX Spectrum, an 8-bit personal home computer released in the UK in 1982 by Sinclair Research. Your Spectrum began as a bi-monthly publication before changing to monthly circulation with the May 1984 issue.

Over its 21-issue run, Your Spectrum provided in-depth technical articles, software reviews, interviews, and even code snippets for at-home programmers. In January 1986, the magazine was relaunched as Your Sinclair, reflecting an expanded focus to include the Sinclair QL personal computer.
