About the Author

Clark Ashton Smith (1893-1961) 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. Not just any fantasy, horror, and science fiction author could impress H. P. Lovecraft into calling him “unexcelled by any other writer, dead or living”. A self-educated poet, sculptor, painter, and author, Clark Ashton Smith's short stories of science fiction, fantasy, horror, and weird fiction have influenced and inspired generations of writers.
