“None strikes the note of cosmic horror as well as Clark Ashton Smith. In sheer daemonic strangeness and fertility of conception, Smith is perhaps unexcelled by any other writer.”

—H. P. Lovecraft

Clark Ashton Smith is considered one of the best contributors to seminal pulp magazines such as Weird Tales. Along with his contemporaries H. P. Lovecraft and Robert E. Howard, he helped shape and define “weird fiction” in the early 20th century. Smith drew upon his background in poetry to portray an unparalleled richness of expression and imagination in his tales of the fantastical and bizarre. 

The Collected Fantasies series presents all of Clark Ashton Smith’s work chronologically. The tales in this series are paired with detailed background notes from editors Ron Hilger and Scott Connors. To prepare for these collected fantasies of Clark Ashton Smith, these two editors meticulously compared various typescripts, published editions, original manuscripts, and Smith’s own letters and notes. Their efforts have made the most definitive and complete collection of Smith’s work to date.

The Door to Saturn is the second of five volumes in The Collected Fantasies. It contains all of his stories from “The Door to Saturn” (1930) to “The Hunters from Beyond” (1931). Tim Powers wrote the introduction.
