  • Good News For Clark Ashton Smith Addicts

    The Collected Fantasies of Clark Ashton Smith - Subscription
    A major event for weird fiction fans! Night Shade is proud to present the Collected Fantasies of Clark Ashton Smith in five volumes. Scott Connors and Ron Hilger, editors and Smith experts, are going back to the original manuscripts to prepare a definitive set of texts. The Night Shade edition is authorized by the Estate of CAS, and endorsed by Arkham House. Jason Van Hollander will be doing full color jackets for each volume. Each volume will have an guest introduction (tba) and there will be story notes for each story, prepared by the editors.

    The first volume is due in the fall of 2005. After the first volume is released, we will no longer accept subscriptions. Vols. 2 & 3 are due in 2006, vol. 4 & 5 are due in 2007.

    Each volume will retail for $39 separately. As always with our classics sets, we're offering a special offer to subscribers.

    A subscription will run $150, which is a savings of $45. Also included is free shipping (UPS in the US, Airmail everywhere else). Most importantly, subscribers will receive an extra book, Tales of India and Irony, that will ONLY be available to subscribers. These are Smith's non fantasy/science fiction/horror tales, and will not be part of the five volume set.

    With CAS's work increasingly hard to come by (some of the '70s Panther Editions are going for mad prices), this looks like a great offer!

    Wow - I'll keep a look out for those.

    Interesting you mention CAS - I was going to post a topic about him also. Anyone noticed that www.eldritchdark.com is now offline. Really disappointing - it was a really good CAS site.
    Batman: It's a low neighborhood, full of rumpots. They're used to curious sights, which they attribute to alcoholic delusions.

    Robin: Gosh, drink is sure a filthy thing, isn't it? I'd rather be dead than unable to trust my own eyes!

      Not this end of the pipeline! :)

        Sod's law - I've been trying to access that site for over a week and been getting 'page not found' messages.

          Thanks for the news Mikey_C.

          Keep trying with the Eldritchdark site. I was there last night and it was working fine, but I'm getting time outs tonight so the problem is intermittent.
