The Skull’s Kickstarter Is Off To An Amazing Start!

Fans of sword-and-sorcery the world over have pledged their blades to the Skull’s cause!

As was foretold by the Skull himself, the kickstarter campaign which shall bring MORE Tales From the Magician’s Skull to a public hungry for eldritch peril, dazzling imagination, and intense action, has roared into life like an Octobear provoked from its slumber. Already the Skull has reached his humble goal, Kickstarter has declared the campaign a “Project We Love [to Fear],” and the sky itself seems to be the only limit to the Skull’s ambition! (That is, until the flying apes with broader wingspans are finally put into mass production . . .)

As well as ensuring the magazine’s future, kickstarter backers will receive an exclusive special issue loaded with fan-favorite authors in addition to their subscription to the best magazine of contemporary sword-and-sorcery around. Show your allegiance to the Legion of the Skull or try your hand at interning with two T-shirt designs available as add-ons. True fanatics to the cause may even wish to procure for themselves a higher rank on the Last to be Immolated list once it goes into print in a future issue — but be warned, no amount of smerduks will buy a place in the line ahead of perennial worthies such as Howard Andrew Jones, Terry Olson, or Levar Burton!

Check back often with the kickstarter itself for an ongoing series of interviews with writers and magazine staff, as well as all sorts of extras like our sword-and-sorcery word of the day! And, for every 200 subscribers signing up through kickstarter, the Skull will add another story to the original 5 in the Kickstarter Special Issue.

So strap on your swordbelt and follow the Skull into the future of issue #7 and beyond, and ensure that the bright vision of sword-and-sorcery’s dark majesty will illuminate another generation of fans.


Rejoice, mortals! My magazine has flourished, and the stars are right for the expansion of my domain! Shower me with smerduks and other golden coins so that I may bring you even more tales of adventure, with greater frequency!

In the pages of my peerless magazine you will find swords, and sorcery, dark deeds, and daring rescues. All that you enjoyed in the first six issues you will experience in those to come, including the return of your favorite characters!

Picture this, as well — fabulous art for every story, maps to monster lairs and forbidden places, and statistics so that you can bring the wonders and terrors imagined by my authors to your own game tables!

All I lack are a few paltry smerduks! You know well what I can do! Even finer marvels lie ahead. Place your faith in me, mortals, and see what wonders I will next unleash!

Join me now!
