Meyn Mamvro, first published in 1986, reached its 100th copy in 2019.
The idea came up to build an online archive, giving free and open access to all copies of the magazine up to issue 100.
The archive was started in 2020 and completed in 2022 by Palden Jenkins from material edited by Cheryl Straffon and indexed by Ray Cox. Thanks to all contributors, especially regulars, the mainstay of the magazine.
