Here is an archive of old magazines, many of them about 6502 based machines. Some interesting things :)

That's a big big site with old magazines.
Unlikely, it seems that there isn't mag speaking of Oric

That's an excellent find, I love this site. I like that it'll convert documents on the fly so you can have them in a variety of formats and they're not all just jpegs.

Its a shame Oric Owner isn't on there (yet) but some of the multi format 8 bit mags do have Oric content - Big K magazine for example.

Were there any other English language mags besides Oric Owner?

Anyone with some scanned issues of Oric Owner? I'm writing an article about Oric history for a retrocomputing magazine and I'd like to read the original articles of 1983 and 1984 (and onwards) by this main British mag.

Many thanks.

I do not, but if you manage to locate some, I could add them to the library:

I don't know how, but I have them all ;).
I've uploaded them temporary to GoogleDrive HERE, access is granted to everyone.
@Dbug: Pls, notify me when you transfer the files to your library so I can remove them from GD.

So, now we have the complete downloadable files for;
- Theoric
- Microric
- OricComputing
- OricOwner

what would be cool is to get PDF versions of the 25 issues of Rhetoric (specially now that the old site seems to be gone?) as well as Oric User Monthly.

21 OUM issues can be downloaded from oric.org (accessible without subscription).

BTW, clicking on any cover page opens always OricOwner_01.pdf...

Fixed :)
I did a last minute change and forgot to test that it still worked.

Thank you very much, iss - I've downloaded the ten OO issues.
Many other resources (as iss has already said) are free for download from oric.org

https://www.oric.org/ceomag_download/index.php

Thanks to dbug also for collecting all the stuff in a useful and comfortable place... :-)

They've been scanned but still need the censor to look at them.
