    Arrow The Sanctum of Clark Ashton Smith

    http://www.eldritchdark.com/


    Clark Ashton Smith (1893-1961), perhaps best known today for his association with H.P Lovecraft and the Cthulhu Mythos, is in his own right a unique master of fantasy, horror and science-fiction. While he considered himself primarily a poet, and wrote over 700 poems and prose poems, it is for his short stories that he is best known today. Clark Ashton Smith was also a self-taught artist whose paintings, drawings and sculptures reflect the phantasmagoric worlds of his fiction.

    The Eldritch Dark is a site to facilitate both scholars and fans in their appreciation and study of Clark Ashton Smith and his works.

    Lovecraft is better and Clark Ashton Smith uses really silly names for his fictional objects and creatures.

    Smith is simply an accomplished master in fancyful, lurid writing and he has far greater credentials if only by his translations of the poems of Baudelaire.
    He is witty and often mischievious, however, some of his stories which enrol on Mars and Venus are disturbingly bleak and contain ghastly scenes of violence and gore.
    I like Lovecraft as much but how often doesn't he wire the ending before the story even begun!...

    Smith's naration is some times better than Lovecrafts.
