STAR CHANGES Clark Ashton Smith 1st HC LIMITED

STAR CHANGES by Clark Ashton Smith, edited by Scott Connors & Ron Hilger. Seattle, WA; Darkside Press; 2005. 1st edition hardcover. Publishers description: As most aficionados of weird fiction know, Clark Ashton Smith's career really launched with contributions to Hugo Gernsback's Wonder Stories. While he wrote in the SF genre only sparingly, Smith's poetic vision resulted in stirring picturesque tales of interplanetary travel. Among Smith's best work are such tales as "The Vaults of Yoh-Vombis", "Dweller in the Gulf" and "The Plutonian Drug". Sadly, not only are many of his SF tales unavailable in hardcover, some have never been presented in the author's preferred texts! Smith scholars Ron Hilger and Scott Connors have assembled what is now doubt an essential Smith volume, whenever possible working form Smith's own manuscripts to prepare the texts in the form that the author himself would have preferred.

Contents:

The Letter from Mohaun Los, The Eternal World, The Demon of the Flower, The Plutonian Drug, A Star Change, The Light from Beyond, Vulthuum, The Immortals of Mercury, Phoenix, The Monster of the Prophecy, The Vaults of Yoh-Vombis, The Dweller in the Gulf.

Issued in a limited edition of 500 copies. Fine in fine dj.
