Zorba Equipment Users' Society (Zeus)

The society ran from November 1983 to May 1986. A subscription to Zeus entitled you to a bi-monthly newsletter called "The Oracle of Zeus". 10 editions of the Oracle were published (Vol.1 No.1 - 6 and Vol.2 No.1 - 4). Zeus simultaneously with it's subscription released public domain software (Zeuslib. 001 to Zeuslib. 022). In addition, Zeus released BIOS version 1.8Z with it's subscription. Eric Bear was the editor. Paul O'Nolan and Tom Hodges were the publishers.
