 SANCTUARY WOODS ANNOUNCES DISTRIBUTION AGREEMENTS
 WITH THREE MAJOR U.S. SOFTWARE COMPANIES
 VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Following the news release of Aug. 27 confirming the contract with the Tandy Corp., Brian Beninger, president of Sanctuary Woods Multimedia Corp., (Vancouver: SWD) today announced that the company has also signed agreements for its CD-ROM titles with three leading software distribution houses in the United States.
 Soft-Kat, a division of Baker & Taylor Co., Educorp Computer Services, a division of Gazelle Technologies Inc., and Compton's Newmedia Inc., a division of Encylopedia Britannica, have agreed to sell Sanctuary Woods CD-ROM titles, the first of which will be Episode One of "The Awesome Adventures of Victor Vector & Yondo" entitled "The Vampire's Coffin," to be followed by Shelley Duvall's "It's a Bird's Life" later this fall.
 Soft-Kat is headquartered in Chatsworth, Calif., and services both the educational and home/consumer market. Soft-Kat also enjoys a working association with other major retailers such as CompUSA and Egghead Software, and has an exclusive contract with all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces to sell through 175 base exchanges.
 San Diego-based Educorp is an international mail order computer product company with a customer base of more than 150,0000 clients in 120 countries. Educorp also operates through a dealer network in Japan, Canada, Australia, Bahrain, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Switzerland, Austria, France and Italy. The company specializes in the distribution of commercially available programs for Apple Macintosh computers for which the Sanctuary Woods CD-ROM products were originally designed.
 Also based in San Diego, Compton's Newmedia is a Britannica company that publishes home and educational software in both floppy and CD-ROM formats. As well as distributing its own titles it handles affiliate labels and third party products on a worldwide basis. Compton's became world famous for the award-winning "Compton's MultiMedia Encyclopedia" which is the most comprehensive encyclopedia available on CD-ROM.
 Compton's are also positioned to become the major distributor for Zenith, who will manufacture the Tandy Corp.'s "Video Information System" (VIS) under licence and for retailing through non-Tandy outlets. VIS hardware is specially designed for CD-ROM products such as the Sanctuary Woods "Victor Vector" and Duvall titles.
 Commented Brian Beninger, president of Sanctuary Woods Multimedia Corp., "These agreements, following on the heels of our contract with the Tandy Corporation, will enhance our market coverage through direct sales, mail order and retail outlets. We have now secured widespread North American and international distribution outlets for our present and future CD-ROM titles, which will be a major factor in maintaining our position on the leading edge of industry growth. Together these agreements will have a significant impact on our future revenues and earnings potential."
 Video Information System is a registered trademark of the Tandy Corp.
