Megamagic: Wizards of the Neon Age

by Mark Cantyon 11/05/2016
What is "Megamagic", exactly? So, let's start off being honest - If you didn't like the 80s, you may not like Megamagic.

I was but a small child in the 80s, naturally very influenced by the shows I watched; back in those days there was very limited choice, we had four channels, seriously, just four. It was  a time when computers were coming into the home, one person on the street and a VHS and that pirated […]
