Sorry to ask this question here. I read a message from a guy that is digitizing this magazine. I happen to have all of the issues, I can't find #7 right now. I wouldn't sell them, but I like the work that he is doing. I want to make sure I'm giving him a fair deal. Any ideas regarding the value of all of the volumes?

More importantly, does this guy know that they've already been digitized?

apple7159,

David (Dog Cow) is right.

The Hardcore Computist magazines were digitized.
Supposedly there is a complete set for download.

Here is the URL:

http://computist.applearchives.com/hardcore-computist--computi/

To answer your Original Question I will say this,

I have seen price ranges on these magazines from
$5.00 to $25.00 (or higher)on the first five or six issues (high end on 1st Issue)
$5.00 to $10.00 each after that.
This is also taking condition of the magazine into consideration.

Also there are other considerations (in my opinion):

-Some folks want the Original Magazines, others will forgo
the actual magazine just to have the information it contains.
I can talk to both sides of this because, in some instances,
I feel the same way.

I believe the following link is much better

https://archive.org/details/Computist_Collection_DVD

as this contains a DVD image of all issues as well as the floppy disk images which are supplied with the magazine

Have fun...

There were some errors in those, I corrected them, and the only place the corrected version appears is on Asimov.

TIF images for each page? What are we, animals? Is there not a proper PDF version of each issue?

There are indeed PDFs of these magazines. Reasonably good quality, and text searchable too.
