mAGpie Archive

Below are all the previous issues of the mAGpie since first publication in 1999  – you will need a suitable pdf reader to view these files.

In 2015 we  published our 100th edition of the mAGpie. We have been fortunate that one of our mAGpie team, David Stevens has spent some considerable time in drawing up an index of contents for all these first 100 issues; we can now offer a searchable index for issues 1-100. 

This is split over two pdf files, with the index of issues 1-50 in the first file and  51-100 in the second file.

  • Simply click on the pdf’s below to open and view them.
  • To search use the search box in your pdf viewer – matching words will then be highlighted. Alternatively, you can use the shortcuts CTRL +F (Windows) or CMD + F (Apple).
