From the vampire-haunted alleyways of mediaeval Averoigne to the shining spires of dying Zothique, Clark Ashton Smith weaves his literary sorcery, transporting us to forgotten realms of necromancies and nightmares, lost worlds and other dimensions. In the enchanted regions of Hyperborea, Atlantis and Xiccarph, encounter malefic magic and demonic deeds beneath the last rays of a fading sun . . .
For the first time ever, this volume encompasses Clark Ashton Smith's entire career as a writer. Smith virtually stopped writing stories in 1937, for reasons that have never been satisfactorily explained, but he left behind a unique legacy of fantasy fiction which is as imaginative and decadent today as when it was first published in the pulp magazines more than half a century ago.Über den Autor:
Clark Ashton Smith was a poet, illustrator and sculptor, and one of the 'big three' authors - Smith, Robert E. Howard and H.P. Lovecraft - to appear regularly in the legendary pulp magazine WEIRD TALES. For most of his life Smith lived in a small cabin in the woods near Auburn, California. He died at the age of 68.
