    One thought on “The End of the Story”

    1. If I mentioned stories with lavish, velvety prose conjuring eldritch imagery and secret, cabalistic settings, where shady characters face nameless, indescribable terrorsyou'd know I was referring to H.P. Lovecraft Clark Ashton Smithright? After completing this first installment of the collected works of CAS’s fantasy/horror fiction, I'm now a serious FAN of his work. Smith’s evocative, melodramatic style is reminiscent of two of his contemporaries (and friends), HP Lovecraft and Robert E. H [...]

    2. FINAL REVIEWIn the tradition of Poe and Lovecraft, over two dozen finely wrought mind-bending tales of horror, terror, shock and hallucination by Clark Ashton Smith (1893-1961). Below are my comments on a trio, including the title story, a cautionary yarn on the nature of memory and a dark fable featuring one of those Dionysian creatures who loves wine, women and physical pleasure and who roams the forests as it plays its panpipes - the Satyr.The End of the StoryAt one point in this short story [...]

    3. Clark Ashton Smith is one of my comfort food authors. An odd sort of comfort, I know: ornate, overripe, extravagantly archaic prose; bizarre and often nightmarish dreamscapes; love and death, hand in hand; sardonic malevolence and fulsome melancholy and sinister, ambiguous threats and a longing for vistas far, far away. Well I suppose we all take our comforts where we feel the most comfortable. As an author and an influence on many other authors, CAS needs no defense – he is one of the origina [...]

    4. This is a collection of short stories from a writer who was a contemporary to H.P. Lovecraft and Robert E. Howard. The works of all three of them were published in the same magazines and they have some common themes (in case of Howard, I am talking about his horror stories, not sword and sorcery adventures).As I already mentioned all of the stories can be qualified as horror with said element present to a lesser or a greater degree. Some of them have contemporary feel, some are more like fantasy [...]

    5. Many years ago I went on a school trip to Wales and I was given some money to buy myself a book for the coach journey. On the strength of the cover alone I bought a book of short stories by Clarke Ashton Smith - I cannot remember which now. It certainly made a great impression on the twelve year old me - it scared the crap out of me. The stories of wizards, necromancers and ghouls gave me nightmares. Roll the calendar forward a few years and student me is rummaging through secondhand bookshops t [...]

    6. This is the first of a five-volume set from Night Shade Press collecting all of Clark Ashton Smith's short fiction, arranged by order of composition; I'd already read probably 75-80% of the stories contained herein, but these are probably the closest we'll ever get to a definitive Clark Ashton Smith collection -- they went back, as much as possible, to original manuscripts and any corrections or emendations that he had madeS was one of the Big Three of Weird Tales (the other two being H.P. Lovec [...]

    7. Often a single author anthology is carefully created to show off a single tone or creation of the author.This one isn't.Come one! Come all, to the Clark Ashton Smith Grab-Bag Circus!Marvel at a boy's science fiction story that is a parade of unearthly alien horrors Flinch at the Great Depression era Twilight Zone story!See a bizarre, poetic planetary romance!Read a darkly satirical and satyrical fantasy romance with a bite (and a stab!)Resurrected snakes! Necromancers! Liches! Atlantean astronau [...]

    8. Let me start by saying I do not generally read short stories, but a great review by GR friend, Stephen, interested me. This collection of short stories was written mostly in the second half of 1929 and the first half of 1930, and are presented in chronological order. Smith's writing style is very dense and descriptive, he uses language we do not often see these days (archaic, I suppose), and seems to have a fixation about colors and flora. Most of the stories had elements of death. Interspersed [...]

    9. [Introduction]The introduction is nice and appropriately respectful of Clark Ashton Smith's legacy, but it won't mean much to new readers not yet familiar with his work. The introduction was written by British horror writer Ramsay Campbell, who along with Robert M. Price and Brian Lumley, is one of the major living figures in modern Lovecraftian horror fiction. Campbell's Lovecraftian creatures have been statted up in Call of Cthulhu, most notably Glaaki (from The Inhabitant of the Lake), the In [...]

    10. As an avid fan of H.P. Lovecraft, I've long been meaning to read the works of his close colleagues, authors that were published in the same pulp magazines of the timeframe, who he frequently discussed his, and their, works with. Whether it be Robert E. Howard, Robert Bloch or, in this case, Clark Ashton Smith, I wanted to learn more about the other minds dabbling in Weird Fiction in the 1920s and 30s.Now I had the pleasure of reading the first of five volumes collecting the stories of "Klarkash- [...]

    11. I am so glad that I finally got around to reading Clark Ashton Smith. His stories are fun and exciting and well-written. In less than 10 pages, he can tell a complete tale that satisfies better than works that extend much longer. The diversity of settings and characters that he creates is astounding; one story will focus on astronauts on Venus; another will conjure a medieval landscape in the 13th century, peopled by monks and sorcerers and evil deeds. Reading this book felt like taking lessons [...]

    12. If H.P. Lovecraft's books and Rod Serling's Twilight Zone episode scripts had a literary child (who sometimes went into space), it would look a lot like Clark Ashton Smith's short stories. I'll be reading more of these.

    13. Originally published at Risingshadow.(Please note that this is a short review/essay about all the volumes in this series.)I was asked to write a short review of The Collected Fantasies of Clark Ashton Smith: Volumes 1-5. This review is more of a short essay about these books and an introduction to the works of Clark Ashton Smith rather than an actual review about them.Clark Ashton Smith probably needs no introduction to readers who are familiar with weird fiction, dark fantasy and horror. He's o [...]

    14. I plan on reading all five volumes of Smith's weird fiction, for a weird fiction fan this 1,500~ page, five volume set of Clark Ashton Smith's collected fantasies is a true embarrassment of riches. Smith, along with Robert E. Howard and Lovecraft was one of the "big three" of Weird Tales. Smith's fiction has a affinity for the other-worldly, decadent and grotesque which surpasses that of Lovecraft or Howard in my opinion. I can tell when I am reading a Smith story, his prose is unique. The early [...]

    15. To avoid crap world building, either Christianity or Paganism must be false. This tale isn't fish or foul, so it fails at both. Seems like he may have succeeded at similar ideas elsewhere,(view spoiler)[ maybe an inverse of "Sylaire." (hide spoiler)] Review of the title story only.

    16. As someone who is familiar with Clark Ashton Smith and is a huge fan of his magnificent, visionary prose, I was naturally excited to read some early short stories by him. There weren’t any short stories in this compilation that I’ve read before and after reading it I can see why. The stories collected herein aren’t up to the same level as his Zothique and Hyperborean stories. Compared to the stories he would write in the early to mid 30’s, these felt mediocre. They felt three-fourths fin [...]

    17. Clark Ashton Smith is a master of the weird, and this volume collects his earliest works in chronological order of their composition from the years 1925 through 1930.Smith's worlds are littered with strange magics, spacefarers lost and abandoned in hallucinogenic landscapes, and all manner of horror and oddity - worlds which are echoed in some later writers of fantastic fiction as Fritz Leiber and Jack Vance (and less skillfully in Michael Moorcock), but which have unfortunately been largely aba [...]

    18. This review is for volumes 1 to 5 of the set. I have a weakness for collecting, a weakness I was more than willing to indulge for a set such as this. I found however that not all of CAS’s stories measure up to ones I had previously read (typically in pulp). And I am NOT AT ALL a fan of his poetry. The publisher has also added an impressive appendix to each vol. Sadly the margins and typeface used are substandard, not to mention the questionable cover art that seems to mock rather then venerate [...]

    19. `The End of the Story' is the first of five volumes of Clark Ashton Smith's short stories. The stories are arranged chronologically by composition. The stories in this volume were written between 1925 and 1930. Most of the stories are of the `weird tale' sort, but some veer to straight Horror and some can be classified as Science Fiction (although always with a horror angle). Smith was a very flowery writer, and some of the stories can be tough going, but that's the beauty of short stories, they [...]

    20. Clark Ashton Smith demostra aquí que el relat curt pot ser la forma més poètica i meravellosa de provocar mal cos al lector, evocar-li realitats i móns més enllà del que la majoria d'autors actuals serien capaços, o les dues coses a la vegada. Sense paraules. A més, l'edició és acuradíssima i una delícia de llegir. Els 4 (5) següents cauran en el més breu temps possible.

    21. Clark Ashton Smith is one of those writers who isn't often remembered nowadays. H.P. Lovecraft gets a lot more cultural cachet, even though some parts of Lovecraft's own mythos, like the toad-god Tsathoggua or the tales of Hyperborea, were drawn directly from Smith's stories. There was a lot of sharing back and forth in those days, though--see also a "Cimmerian chieftan" called "Crom-Ya" that shows up in Lovecraft's The Shadow Out of Time.The End of the Story is part of a series of all of Smith' [...]

    22. This is a collection of stories influenced by H.P. Lovecraft in their narrative style, but leaning much more towards science fiction.Like most anthologies that I read, this book is a bell curve of enjoyment- there's a few that I really do, a few that I really don't, and losts in the middle of the curve that are sort of ho-hum. I really liked three of the later ones in here- "Marooned in Andromeda", "The Metamorphosis of the World", and "The Root of Ampoi". I have the later volumes in this series [...]

    23. This is a collection of short stories from the fantasy, horror and science fiction genres. The concepts are a product of their times with their concomitant charms and blind spots but the true star is the author’s luxurious writing style and vocabulary. It reminded me of reading Poe in high school and Lovecraft later on.

    24. An effective and quaint little tale on the splendours of unholy seductions and yearnings. I always preferred Smith's weird fiction to Lovecraft's as he possesses a superior ear for dialogue and paces his narrative in a more timely method. The first of the Averoigne stories.

    25. Although there were a couple good stories for the most part I was unaffected and unimpressed with the work. There was a lack of suspense, of uncertainty. It just all seemed plain, staid, expected, almost normal. It just never reached out and grabbed me.

    26. Although there were a couple good stories for the most part I was unaffected and unimpressed with the work. There was a lack of suspense, of uncertainty. It just all seemed plain, staid, expected, almost normal. It just never reached out and grabbed me.

    27. Fantastic.No one writes like Smith, the gorgeousness of language and regular reference to opiate perfumes got me.

    28. I wrote and published this review for Dread CentralThe End of the Story is, ironically, the beginning for author Clark Ashton Smith. If you’re not familiar with CAS, he was one of H.P. Lovecraft’s contemporaries. He was also one of Weird Fiction magazine’s largest contributors, focusing mainly on horrific fantasy tales and dark sci-fi.The End of the Story is the first volume in a five-book series that chronologically lays out the short works of CAS. Editors Scott Connors and Ron Hilger wor [...]

    29. (Note – this was the first ebook I ever read and a useful guinea pig in testing the Kobo app on a range of devices plus their own Aura H20 ereader)Clark Ashton Smith was a multi-faceted artist though likely best known to a modern audience as the least enduringly popular of the Weird Tales ‘Big 3’. And while he may lack an iconic touchstone of popular culture such as Cthulhu or Conan to his credit, his corpus is meritorious in its own way.Plainly the scholarly exertions to assemble this six [...]

    30. I love CAS, but this volume is really hit or miss. Some stories, like The Tale of Satampra Zeiros, are as wonderful and funny and creepy as you could want; some, like Planet of the Dead, are filled with a poignant beauty; and some, such as The Metamorphosis of Earth, are lifeless and tedious, because they are not told with a character point of view. The latter story, for examples, features only a few oracular quotations from a scientist, amidst its lengthy newspaper-like story of an attack by Ve [...]
