The March 2023 issue of Skeleton Realm Magazine

Skeleton Realm Magazine is a monthly digital online American english language "leisure-zine" produced by Skeleton Realm and MeMoreTV. The Magazine is edited by Doug Bleichner and Sam Wagstaff. It is released on the first of each month online through the website Skelepedia.org. The magazine accepts submissions in the Skeleton Realm Discord channel "Skelemag" and via email through SkeletonRealm@gmail.com

Skeleton Realm covers a variety of topics including fiction, non-fiction, poetry, drama, literary criticism, history, science, mathematics, sports, hobbies, lifestyle, fashion, and more. It has been described as "a fascinating mix of leisure and fun in magazine form." The magazine has been praised for its "unusual blend of leisure and fun."

The content that makes up Skeleton Realm Magazine each month is also derived from Skeleton Realm Contributors.

In 2024, Skeleton Realm, in collaboration with MeMoreTV and The Quicklinks Open Source Consortium, added a Zinification Tech tool to Skelepedia, in order that submitters to the zine might have an easier time converting their submissions to the required .pdf format and sizing requirements (8.5"x11" at 150dpi).

History

Skeleton Times, the precursor to Skeleton Realm Magazine, freshly printed from Kinko's (now FedEx Office) in 2015

Skeleton Realm Magazine was created in 2022 by Doug Bleichner and Sam Wagstaff. In 2015, the two produced a one-off, 14-page, black and white print zine called Skeleton Times, which featured cartoons drawn by T. Lee Gunselman titled, "Spanky's Circus" and "Funny Farm". After the acquisition of Skeleton Realm by MeMoreTV in 2020, Bleichner and Wagstaff were tasked by MeMoreTV executives to revisit the idea of producing a leisure zine for fans of Skeleton Realm. After several meetings, Skeleton Realm Magazine was born.
