Publisher's Summary

Published in chronological order, with extensive story and bibliographic notes, this series not only provides access to stories that have been out of print for years, but gives them a historical and social context. Series editors Scott Conners and Ronald S. Hilger excavated the still-existing manuscripts, letters and various published versions of the stories, creating a definitive "preferred text" for Smith's entire body of work. This third volume of the series brings together 21 of his fantasy stories.

More classic weird fiction from Clark Ashton Smith!

Well-done audio book adaptation of the weird fiction short stories and novellas of Clark Ashton Smith, a master of the genre and a member of Lovecraft's circle, widely acknowledged to have been an early influence on D&D (who nevertheless did not make it to the Gygax Appendix N - an apparent glaring omission that has invited much speculation). Weird fiction encompasses much of what today would be classed as science fiction, fantasy, and horror, often macabre in tone. I loved these stories and highly recommend them!

Very good

These stories are a lot of fun. CAS is a wonderfully creative writer with a superb vocabulary. I love words and fancy that I know more than a few of them, but he leaves me reaching for a dictionary throughout each of his stories. The narrators are also very good. There are about 5 of them, which helps keep the long line of stories fresh, and each is very talented. Fans of HP Lovecraft and RE Howard will enjoy these stories.
