Editorial reviews

A seasoned chorus of voices bring awe and wonder to Clark Ashton Smith’s unique take on science fiction, fantasy, and horror. This second of five volumes of edited and curated "preferred texts" of Smith’s work serves as justification for a re-appreciation of this master of speculative fiction, the third member of the Weird Tales unholy horror trinity, the other two being H.P. Lovecraft and Robert E. Howard. Smith’s appreciation for human sexuality, fondness for ribald humor, and strong, female characters are all on display in these 20 mind-engaging, goose bump-inspiring short works that highlight the storytelling ability and prose of an (also) underappreciated poet.

Publisher's summary

Published in chronological order, with extensive story and bibliographic notes, this series not only provides access to stories that have been out of print for years, but gives them a historical and social context. Series editors Scott Conners and Ronald S. Hilger excavated the still-existing manuscripts, letters and various published versions of the stories, creating a definitive "preferred text" for Smith's entire body of work. This second volume of the series brings together 20 of his fantasy stories.
