Publisher's Summary

This series presents Clark Ashton Smith's fiction chronologically, based on composition rather than publication. Editors Scott Connors and Ron Hilger have compared original manuscripts, various typescripts, published editions, and Smith's notes and letters in order to prepare a definitive set of texts. The Maze of the Enchanter includes, in chronological order, all of his stories from The Mandrakes (February, 1933) to The Flower-Women (May, 1935). This volume also features an introduction and extensive notes on each story.

A very good collection from a true wordsmith.

The fantasy stories are among Smith's best. The sci-fi is fun too but Smith shines best in the Zothique, Xiccarph, and Hyperbole settings.

Great weird fiction from a master of the genre!

Clark Ashton Smith was a true master of the genre of weird fiction, a genre that encompassed much of what we would now call science fiction, fantasy, horror, etc. He is often considered a notable omission from the Appendix N compiled by Gary Gygax - his name probably belonged on the list, but was not included for some reason. This collection of short stories represents some of the best of Smith's weird fiction. Highly recommended.
