"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 "None strikes the note of cosmic horror as well as Clark Ashton Smith. In sheer daemonic strangeness and fertility of conception, Smith is perhaps unexcelled by any other writer, dead or living."--H. P. LovecraftReseña del editor:
An artist, poet, and prolific contributor to "Weird Tales", Clark Ashton Smith (1893-1967) is 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, "Lost Worlds" brings together twenty-three of Smith's classic stories, all of which were originally published in "Weird Tales". Rather than centre his works on heroes, Smith created fantastical worlds around which he built cycles of stories. Included here are tales from the realms of Averoigne, Zothique, Hyperborea, and others. Told in lush poetic prose, these haunting stories bring to life dark, dreamlike realms full of gothic monsters and mortals. Jeff VanderMeer provides an introduction for this Bison Books edition.
