This book of 100 pages—I hate to denegrade it to a mere magazine—is in my opinion, the most informative and enlightening 100 pages ever published, on the—to this day–neglected master of the phantastique, whether it be fiction, poetry, or art, Clark Ashton Smith. To this day, I find the articles about CAS, many by those who knew him personally, to be my favorite pieces in the collection: Five Approaches to the Achievement of Clark Ashton Smith Cosmic Master Artist by Marvin Heimstra, Through Space & Time With CAS, by Mike Glyer—a discussion of common features in the short stories of CAS, The Return of the Sorcerer, by Roger Bryant–discusses the fiction reprinted from the Arkham House volumes by the British publisher, Neville Spearman, CAS: A Note on the Aesthetics of Fantasy, by Charles K. Wolfe, Clark Ashton Smith Natal Horoscope, by E. Hoffmann Price, Drugs and Clark Ashton Smith, by Dennis Rickard, Necrophelia in the Prose and Poetry of Clark Ashton Smith, by Charles Richard Grose, The Fiction of Clark Ashton Smith, When He Wrote it and What remains Unpublished, by Roy A. Squires, and reminiscences of their visits with CAS by friends, George Haas, and Rah Hoffman. It's a treasure trove of information. Editor/Publisher, Harry Morris's finest NYCTALOPS. Limited to only 1000 copies. A near fine copy in stiff-paper covers.
