Tales From The Magician's Skull #2

ADD TO WISHLIST >
Watermarked PDF
$8.00

Tales From the Magician’s Skull is a 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.

Issue #2 features fiction by John Hocking, James Stoddard, James Enge, Nathan Long, Sets Uzume, Violette Malan, and Dave Gross. The magazine is edited by Howard Andrew Jones and published by Joseph Goodman of Goodman Games, with layout by Lester B. Portly.

Each story is lovingly illustrated by industry stalwarts, and issue #2 continues the amazing high standards of art from the first issue.

Here are the stories in this issue:

Blood of the Forest Born
by Nathan Long

Then she saw it. The eight-legged circle of Atseska. Any Haata child with a grandfather who told ghost stories knew about the black magic of Atseska the Spider.

“He’s going to kill them,” murmured Anla. “He’s going to kill everyone in this house.”

Break them on the Dying Stones
by Setsu Uzume

The blindfold itched, and stank of wet sheep. Gatja raised her hands and leaned forward to scratch her face, but the muting chains rang taut — locking her wrists and neck just beyond reach.

Stolen Witness
by James Enge

They followed the crooked man, bearing a corpse on his back and a light in his hand, into the wizard’s garden.

Trial by Scarab
by John C. Hocking

Benhus drew and met him in a clash of strident steel.  They traded blows, at first with more maddened intent than skill, swords meeting and sliding apart with a sound like a blacksmith’s anvil seeing frantic work.

Day of the Shark
by James Stoddard

“I led my hunters here, daring the depths to seek you.  I have a keen eye, steady arms, and the courage of ten. I have killed the Great White single-handed. I demand the Trial.”

A Soul’s Second Skin
by Violette Malan

“Hush,” Dhulyn’s tone was such that even the mage fell silent. “Something large breathes ten or twelve paces away from us.”

Shuhalla’s Sword
by Dave Gross

Only the commander’s head emerged from the woody cage, neck stretched back and mouth open. From it protruded his tongue, darker than blood and—incredibly—as long as his forearm.

The People of the Pit
Illustrated by Stefan Poag

An illustrated adaptation of Abraham Merritt’s classic story.

Appendix: Game Statistics
by Terry Olson

In each issue, we present an appendix of game statistics for the various creatures, spells, and items described in each issue. All of these stats are for the Dungeon Crawl Classics Role Playing Game system.

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
