Thirty stories selected by James Turner of Arkham House with advice sought from Smith publisher and friend, Roy A.

AMATEUR CORRESPONDENT: First Anniversary Number.

By: (SMITH, CLARK ASHTON)

Price: $275.00

Publisher: Belleville, New Jersey,, Corwin Stickney,, 1937.


The "Amateur Correspondent" began as the "Fantasy Correspondent" with Willis Conover as editor and only lasted three issues, this being the last; and then the editor had changed! This final issue has a fine article by Clark Ashton Smith in its first appearance - "ATMOSPHERE IN WEIRD FICTION." I'm not quite sure why this issue was the last as they had paying sponers thru advertising but such it is. Printed upon slick paper; nicely designed. Quite scarce bordering rare! View more info

AS IT IS WRITTEN.

By: SMITH, CLARK ASHTON.

Price: $25.00

Publisher: West Kingston, Rhode Island:, Donald M. Grant,, 1982.

Edition: First Edition.

ILauded as a lost tale by Clark Ashton Smith, published under a pseudonym, it was discovered to the chagrin of all concerned that it was indeed composed by De Lysle Feree Cass an old THRILL BOOK writer! Nevertheless it does now exist as an interesting anomaly. It is rather luxuriantly written and the illustrations by R.J. Krupowicz are equally exotique. Limited to 1250 copies and SIGNED by the illustrator. View more info

Amongst CAS' papers, Roy A.
