The CBM 8-Bit Magazine Index: Author Bibilographies

I have used the Commodore 8-Bit Magazine Index to compile bibliographies of notable Commodore magazine contributors.

Jim Butterfield
Jim Butterfield was the authority on Commodore computers, and the most prolific author in the field. He was a founding member of the The Toronto PET Users Group (TPUG), an associate editor for COMPUTE! magazine, and a contributor to multiple magazines ranging from the earliest issues of The Transactor (1979) to the eighteenth issue of Commodore World (1996). He had a knack for making technical topics simple, and never talked down to beginners.
Larry Cotton
Larry Cotton wrote a long series of BASIC tutorials in aimed at novice programmers that ran in Compute!'s Gazette from 1986 to 1995. A handful of type-ins were published under the name 'Lawrence Cotton'; I'm fairly confident that these were by the same author.
Fred D'Ignazio
Fred D'Ignazio's column first appeared in COMPUTE! in April, 1982 and continued as a regular feature until 1988. A second feature column appeared in the premier issue of Compute!'s Gazette in July 1983, and D'Ignazio continued to contribute to the Gazette until the disk edition folded in 1995. He started out writing about kids and computers, and moved on to write about the emergence of multimedia in education along with a number of speculative articles about the future of computing. COMPUTE! gave him a great deal of freedom to write about whatever he wanted; his articles are rarely technical but they are always fun to read.
Richard Mansfield
Richard Mansfield wrote a regular column about machine language in Compute!'s Gazette and became the Editorial Director of the Gazette in early 1987. He is the author of the book Machine Language for Beginners.
Steve Vander Ark
Steve Vander Ark wrote articles for Compute!'s Gazette, RUN, and Commodore World. He's mainly known for writing about GEOS (his best work), but he also reviewed public domain software and attempted a BASIC tutorial for Commodore World.
