About our magazine

Planet Scumm is a triannual science-fiction magazine, published by Spark & Fizz Books. Our publication was born out of a reverence for the bizarre science fiction magazines of the ’30s, ’50s, and ’60s. We set our up our operation to discover, curate, and amplify the new digital vanguard of science fiction writers passing through the semi-pro market.

Planet Scumm is available as a perfect-bound paperback book containing several new stories written by this feeble planet’s future leaders of science fiction. Our team is split between Boston, New York City, and Portland, OR.
