The Limbo Files: Writing, Freelancing and the Amstrad PCW
Files, published as a Wildside Press trade paperback in 2009 and in
ebook form in 2016, collects the nearly 100 columns written by David
Langford for magazines devoted to the once highly popular Amstrad PCW
word processor, from its heyday in the mid-1980s through its 1990s
decline and beyond. It has to be admitted that Langford does once in a
while reluctantly stoop to providing technical advice on how to use the
wretched machine, but for the most part the columns digress madly in all
directions to cover the innumerable splendours and miseries of freelance
Four bonus columns of varying frivolity from non-Amstrad PCW magazines have been added for the ebook edition. Total length of ebook: approximately 101,000 words.
