An exotique tale, for a time thought written by Clark Ashton Smith, but soon after been proven , not to've been written by CAS. However it does exist with his name, and it will always remain a curious error of wishful bibliographic thinking. The introduction lays out the errant mythodology. The illustrations by R. J. Krupowicz would've suited Smith's exotique prose beautifully. The book is limited to 1250 copies and signed by the artist. I have a few remaining copie... View more info

When I assisted in the gathering of some of the materials for this book I was at first very doubtful of the outcome, but I must applaud Jerad Walters' effort assembling the finest book that was ever done, and ever likely to be done, in presenting the majority of the artwork of Clark Ashton Smith; it is a remarkable book. Its popularity is evidenced by the fact that the book went O.P., in less than a year. Listed at the original in-print price. As new copies still in s... View more info

As S.T. Joshi notes in his SIXTY YEARS OF ARKHAM HOUSE, SELECTED POEMS was "another landmark volume from Arkham House, whose importance to weird literature—and perhaps to American literature in general— cannot be overstated." Smith submitted the volume to Derleth in 1949 but the book sadly remained unpublished until eight years after the author's death. It was the book CAS was most proud of; what he considered his best poetry up until that time. As new cop... View more info

Clark Ashton Smith kept a black leatherette notebook in which he would jot down ideas, poems, virtually anything that came into his head when he was walking or simply at home; some of these ideas were fleshed out into stories and poetry but the majority either were not, or were altered radically. When Rah Hoffman visited Smith, Smith read aloud from the notebooks which Rah immediately proclaimed it "The Black Book!" and the author thought that a grand idea. Portions of... View more info
