MISCELLANOUS WRITINGS OF CLARK ASHTON SMITH Smith Hilger & Connors (eds) 1st HC

THE MISCELLANEOUS WRITINGS OF CLARK ASHTON SMITH by Clark Ashton Smith edited by Scott Connors & Ron Hilger. San Francisco, CA; Night Shade Books; 2011. 1st edition hardcover.

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.
