R.O.M. Magazine was a fairly amateurish attempt out of Canada that covered the Atari world. The first several issues were printed out on dot matrix printers and Xeroxed while later issues used a letter quality printer. Eventually the magazine was typeset.

The bulk of the contributions appear to have come from the same handful of authors. While there were plenty of interesting interviews and type-in programs I don't think this publication was able to compete with the likes of A.N.A.L.O.G. Magazine and Antic Magazine.
