Thanks for your interest in IMPostors! - I wasn’t able to release the disk images for several years because of copyright issues, which is why you might find disk images of some of my other games but not that one. But those issues have been sorted out now, so here are the disk images. As with most of the old SAM Coupe stuff it’s basically freeware now, so feel free share it with anyone you think might be interested.
I understand your site is acting as an archive of software but needs permission to publish disk files.
If you have Days of Sorcery on a disk or disk image, then please take this email as permission to publish the disk image to your site, and if you would be able to provide it to me either by email or http/ftp etc, that would be fantastic.
All of my stuff is perfectly fine to distribute here (damn, wish I’d gotten around to this sooner).
ZUB-related material: The Pickford Bros have stated publicly that they’re fine with Zub-related things being out there as fan-efforts, but reserve the right to do nasty things who try to make money off it without talking to them, so we’re good there too.

Dear SAM Fans…
I am very pleased to announce that I now consider the following of my work for the SAM Coupé to be regarded as Public Domain;
Review Disk Magazine (Issues 1 - 5)
MegaDisk #1 (Quix, Quix II, Math!, Le Box & Manic Mazes)
…under the condition that each disk be distributed in its original, unedited format. At the time of release in 1991, the rights to my MegaDisk #1 were signed over to SAMco, but since this company and all of its subsidiaries no longer exist, I now consider my contract with them to be null and void.
I am more than happy for my work for the SAM Coupé to be distributed freely, without charge. I would appreciate being informed when any of my software is distributed.
Many thanks, and enjoy!

Many years ago I wrote a program called SamForth.
As the copyright holder I can now confirm that it is FREEWARE.
I have lost the original source disks, but the program still exists, I believe, on a SAM Supplement CD.
If anyone wants to backwards engineer it for any reason, please feel free to do so.
I don’t know if I’m the copyright holder of Batz 'n Balls, but I certainly am the author and would like to grant permission to everybody to download this game. Lots of years I deleted about 100Mb of Sam and Spectrum programs (and all my Z80 sources). Still regret that every now and then …
Ah well, happily married and living in South Africa now.

Subject: SAM Juggler demo animated GIF
I’ve created an animated GIF version of tbe famous SAM Juggler demo using a hacked version of SimCoupe to dump an image stream.
Feel free to pinch and put onto a more appropriate website - can’t guarantee it’ll still be there in years to come.
