Participating in these acknowledgements were Ray Bradbury with his INTRODUCTION — "Looking back over the years . . . I remember two stories. Both were by Clark Ashton Smith . . . THE CITY OF THE SINGING FLAME and MASTER OF THE ASTEROID. These stories . . . more than any others . . . had everything to do with my decision . . . to become a writer:" a poem — CLARK ASHTON SMITH — by Theodore Sturgeon; the first appearance of Donald Sidney-Fryer's notable biography of CAS — THE SORCERER DEPARTS; AUTOBIOGRAPHY — by CAS himself; AS I REMEMBER KLARKASH-TON — by his friend in later years, George Haas; THE PROSE TALES OF CLARK ASHTON SMITH — by L. Sprague deCamp; CLARK ASHTON SMITH: AN APPRECIATION — by Fritz Leiber, Jr., "Smith's tales remind me of Innsmouth Jewelry, they're liking finding in a thieves market, strange ornaments, the metal elaborately inlaid and fired, studded with unknown, semi precious stones, all of them suggesting an unknown culture, most rigidley taboo-bound, a culture standing by itself, a timeless culture, the stone graved culture of a hot dry land;" and also includes the tal — THE WEIRD OF AVOOSL WUTHOQQUAN, and the previously unpublished play — THE DEAD WILL CUCKOLD YOU. Published within two years of the author's death and reading it now more than fifty years after, CAS: IN MEMORIAM remains one of the finest documents yet done on this neglected author.

With the end of WWII and paper shortages lifted, Derleth set out upon an ambitious program, publishing eight titles in 1946, with copy runs totaling over 27,000 copies! Of those eight titles were the two notable OMNIBUS volumes—WILLIAM HOPE HODGSON's—THE HOUSE ON THE BORDERLAND, and ROBERT E. HOWARD's—SKULL-FACE; additionally three British authors. Other than the HODGSON omnibus, the British writers did not catch on with Arkham House readers and those titles languished on the shelves for over a decade—this Blackwood title being one of them. Only two stories in this small book which might have had something to do with its unpopularity although it WAS only published at $1.50 cover price. Two original stories—not WEIRD TALES reprints—THE DOLL and THE TROD. The author's last book. [3490 copies printed]. Atmospheric d.j., illo by Ronald Clyne. Fine in very lightly toned fine d.j. #28JS
