There was something on the wind that morning. It was new, but carried with it the sense of something…familiar. She turned slowly into the wind, letting it wash across her face, blowing her raven hair behind her. Yes, she knew this. She remembered it. Her fingers tightened around the hilt of her sword as she stepped into the wind, anxious to reach its source. With every step, a smile grew larger across her face.
Or, in other words, the Kickstarter for Tales From the Magician’s Skull is now live! Tales From the Magician’s Skull is a printed fantasy magazine dedicated to presenting all-new sword-and-sorcery fiction by the finest modern crafters in the genre. These stories are the real thing, crammed with sword-swinging action, dark sorceries, dread, and ferocious monsters — and they hurtle forward at a headlong pace.
And this is your chance to get in on the ground floor! We need your support. We love the pulp magazines that helped to spawn the role-playing genre, and want to continue their tradition in the best way. We’ve lined up great writers to be a part of this experience. Issue #1 features fiction by James Enge, John C. Hocking, Howard Andrew Jones, Aeryn Rudel, Bill Ward, C. L. Werner, and Chris Willrich. And we have more great names coming on board for issue #2!
So, please, show your love, and let’s make Tales From the Magician’s Skull a huge success!
