Product description

An artist, poet, and prolific contributor to "Weird Tales", Clark Ashton Smith (1893-1967) was an influential figure in the history of pulp fiction. A close correspondent and collaborator with H. P. Lovecraft and Robert E. Howard, Smith was widely celebrated as a master by his contemporaries. Back in print for the first time since 1971, "Out of Space and Time" showcases the many facets of Smith's unique prose that make him one of the greatest American writers of macabre and fantastic tales. Here are tales of Averoigne, tales belonging to the Cthulhu, stories of sheer horror, and one or two of sardonic comedy. Jeff VanderMeer provides an introduction for this Bison Books edition. Jeff VanderMeer is a two-time World Fantasy Award winner whose books of fiction and edited anthologies have been finalists for the Philip K. Dick Award and the International Horror Guild Award.

Review quote

"Incredible worlds, impossibly beautiful cities, and still more fantastic creatures... Take one step across the threshold of his stories and you plunge into colour, sound, taste, smell and texture: into language."--Ray Bradbury "He had a monstrously vivid imagination, a keenly ironic sense of humor, and an uninhibited bent for the macabre. Weird-heroic fantasy is not a large genre, but Smith was a giant in this field."--L. Sprague de Camp
