Happy Birthday Clark Ashton Smith

Yes, it’s a little fanboy moment. I have to admit that I didn’t learn of the works of Clark Ashton Smith until later in life. In way that’s a good thing because I don’t that I would have appreciated them as much as I do now.

Smith is in many ways a forgotten master. He doesn’t gain no where near the attention of Robert E Howard or HP Lovecraft and he really should. His tales are dark, weird, and fantastic. Every time I read one I learn new word. Man, this guy had a huge vocabulary.

His works deserve a place in the hallowed list that is Appendix N. If you want to learn more or listen to a couple of audio books then just head over to Eldritch Dark.
