The Dark Eidolon and Other Fantasies, Paperback

The Dark Eidolon and Other Fantasies Paperback


Not just any fantasy, horror, and science fiction author could impress H P Lovecraft into calling him 'unexcelled by any other writer, dead or living'.

Clark Ashton Smith - autodidact, prolific poet, amateur philosopher, bizarre sculptor, and unmatched storyteller - simply wrote like no one else, before or since.

This new collection of his very best tales and poems is selected and introduced by supernatural literature scholar S T Joshi and allows readers to encounter Smith's visionary brand of fantastical, phantasmagorical worlds, each one filled with invention, terror and a superlative sense of metaphysical wonder.
