I have hesitated to add this page to the web site, because it was begun long before I had even conceived the idea of the web site.  It was created for my own use, and I purposefully left out some articles from this index.  However, I have since gone through all 76 issues of PFPC, so most articles and other items of note should be included.

I have included all PFPC Issues 1 to 76, The Best of PFPC I and II, and the 1994 Special Collector Edition in the index.  Despite strong feelings by at least two collectors, I have not included playset theme indexing.  In the Playset Magazine index, for example, I included an index for American Revolutionary War, including all significant magazine references to that war.  I know that is helpful for collectors, but I simply have not taken the extensive time and effort to do that here.  For the most part, indexes are by manufacturer, unless the article itself was theme oriented and covered several manufacturers' products..  

I know there are other PFPC indexes out there.  But if you are looking for information from PFPC, this one might help!

 

Updates and corrections will be made as time permits.  Feel free to send me feedback.
