Planet Scumm was born out of reverence for the bizarre science fiction magazines of the ’30s, ’50s, and ’60s, where the likes of Isaac Asimov would rub shoulders with L. Ron Hubbard. We cherish the genre as an open forum for philosophy, anxieties, thought experiments and thoughtless experiments.


Planet Scumm publishes quarterly, with spring, summer, fall, and winter issues. As of writing we print these bad boys in-house on a lovingly reclaimed Brother HLL2320D Monochrome Laser Printer, with covers handled courtesy of our friendly local print shop. Planet Scumm is also available as:

  • a PDF (or “Planet (Scumm) Document File”)
  • an .epub or .mobi for your tablet or whatever
  • an audio book turned radio play turned… well, you should just listen to it really
