Face That Fits His Mask By William King
He could change in mid-spring, tear out the man’s throat, feast on his bones, drink his blood. The beast of the change gibbered in the back of his mind, begging to be unleashed. His fingers splayed, his nails beg

"Rejoice, mortals! I have heard your pleas and returned to grant your greatest desire: More sword-and-sorcery!



Once again I will bring you tales of thrilling adventures in time-lost lands. There are swords, and there is sorcery. There are dark deeds and daring rescues...." The Magician's Skull speaks in Kickstarter



Should you trust a talking skull? Well, no sane person would, but I attest this Skull does not lie (and I am making a habit of listening to it). Tales fro

Volume 3 continues to clear the high bar this "Weird Tales meets Dragon Magazine" journal has set itself, with fantastic production values (heavy, cardstock covers and 110 lbs paper mades), a high page count and some really strong short story writers. Most if not all, of the stories are serial characters, which is both good and bad. James Enges' Morlock Ambrosius was new to me when I started reading "Skull"...he has such a high page count and rich backstory now, that various studies could be abo ...more

Like it’s two predecessors, this magazine is high quality. It looks and feels great. Yes “feels”, the paper is a heavy high quality. The art is pretty okay. Sometimes outstanding, sometimes not, but always decent.

I’m enjoying the re-occurring characters, but I hope it stays fresh. Three issues in, it is, but I think a bit more variety might be needed.

At first I shrugged my shoulders at the DCC stats included. DCC isn’t really my thing (or D&D in general), but it takes little space and for thos

Another volume of really great swords-and-sorcery short stories in the tradition of Appendix N - with DCC RPG game stats at the back! Awesome stuff! Highly recommended to fantasy fans!

I think the editor did a good job of selecting varied, quality stories and the production value of the object itself is high - I don't often go "Wow, nice paper!" when I get a magazine! There’s also the noteworthy novelty of the back section featuring Dungeon Crawl Classic rule breakdowns & stats for the assorted monsters, spells, and artifacts featured in the preceding stories. Haven’t seen that before!

As a fan of ye olde pulps, I hope this new one goes far.

A solid new issue of "Tales from the Magician's Skull". Again some impressive production values and the thickest paper I've ever seen in a magazine. Plus, cover art by 60's master Sanjulian (Creepy, Eerie, Vampirella…) The stories inside are of varied quality, but all of them are fun to read and at the very least worth your time. The standout was The Wizard of Rembrance by Sarah Newton. ...more
