Not just any fantasy, horror, and science fiction author could impress H. P. Lovecraft into calling him âunexcelled by any other writer, dead or livingâ or compel Fritz Lieber to employ the worthy term sui generis. Clark Ashton Smithâautodidact, prolific poet, amateur philosopher, bizarre sculptor, and unmatched storytellerâsimply wrote like no one else, before or since. This new collection of his very best tales and poems is selected and introduced by supernatural literature scholar S. T. Joshi and allows readers to encounter Smithâs visionary brand of fantastical, phantasmagorical worlds, each one filled with invention, terror, and a superlative sense of metaphysical wonder.
