The Miscellaneous Writings of Clark Ashton Smith

by Clark Ashton Smith
Release date: November 25, 2011
Type: other fiction
Genres: mainstream, short stories

The Miscellaneous Fictions of Clark Ashton Smith gathers together the adventure, juvenilia and other non-fantastic fiction of Smith. While he is known best for his fantastic work, these adventure and mainstream stories shed light on the development of Smith's writing and his constantly evolving style.

The Miscellaneous Fictions is a perfect companion to the five volume Collected Fantasies set. As with that set, editors Scott Connors and Ron Hilger have prepared this volume by comparing original manuscripts, various typescripts, published editions, and Smith's notes and letters, in order to prepare a definitive set of texts.
