In this frightfully fun time of year, we’ve got a magical talking skull that just might want to give you a special greeting.
The two issues of Tales From the Magician’s Skull provide a wonderful mix of sword-and-sorcery and classic pulp-style horror in each volume. With stories by such luminaries as James Enge, John C. Hocking, Violette Malan, Bill Ward, and many others, you get a great sampling of quality writing in a vintage-style package.
And if those authors aren’t enough to get you excited, how about the fact that each issue also contains some fabulous artwork to go along with each story? Ian Miller, Russ Nicholson, Doug Kovacs, Stefan Poag, and others display their talent to help bring each story to life with accompanying illustrations.
There is one other aspect that is always important to remember as well: gaming. Gaming? In our pulp magazine? It’s more likely than you think. In fact, each issues of Tales From the Magician’s Skull features gaming material based on the stories from that volume, detailed out by Terry Olsen! So you get a two-fer deal with each book: great stories and gaming goodness! Now how much would you pay?
Before you answer, why not read someone else’s opinion? Black Gate did a recent review of Tales From the Magician’s Skull #2, as did Swords Under a Distant Sun. Check out what they have to say, and then pop back over. We think it’s worth your time.
