A Laser book #28 in the 58 book series, this was the author's first book.

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 copies available at cover price. As new in d.j.

Up until SELECTED POEMS's publication in 1971, EBONY & CRYSTAL was the author's greatest poetry collection, as it contained his epic THE HASHISH-EATER. The book was inexpertly bound, lacking the endpapers, and the author was so upset that he didn't bother having his artwork design reproduced for a dust-jacket. The dust-jacket was printed up in an edition of 200 copies by Terence McVicker, to celebrate the hundreth anniversary of the poet's birth, in 1993. Issued in an edition of 500 [actually 525} signed, numbered copies. The best copy I've ever found of this book. A few corrections in View more info
