    One thought on “The Emperor of Dreams”

    1. Ah, Clark Ashton Smith. For those of you unfamiliar with this writer imagine someone with the fevered imagination of Lovecraft and the lyrical stylistic chops of Lord Dunsany and you'll get an idea of what you're in for. For my money Smith is perhaps the best of the "Weird Tales Triumvirate" of Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard and Ashton Smith. I would probably place Howard as a close second on that listsy I know, but for all of the coolness of Lovecraft's ideas he really was just a god-awful writer. [...]

    2. To Clark Ashton Smith, by Lin CarterUpon what rare and oriental wineYour visions fed, I cannot claim to know,Nor from what volumned lore of spheres sublimeYou built your necromantic tales wheretoSo many dreamers like myself have comeTo revel in the opulence of artThat nourishes like some supernal sunThe famished dreamers whom our age doth hurt.It is apparent you alone may spellThe hieroglyphs of parchments old as MuAnd vivify old legends to regaleThis modern age that mocks its poets so.Sing on, [...]

    3. This stuff was truly a revelation to me when I discovered it about ten years ago. Clark Ashton smith is simply a gorgeous writer, who creates tales with a mastery of language and lyrical sense that makes them flow like exquisite poetry, and indeed, he was also a poet of a startlingly high order. Now, it is true that Smith's fiction was created with the clear aim of making him a bit of cash, and that he often used the same themes and sometimes pretty much re-told the same stories using slightly d [...]

    4. Truly yours is a melancholy case.' There was concern in Famurza's voice. 'I have been reading some of your late verses. You write only of tombs and yew-trees, of maggots and phantoms and disembodied loves. Such stuff gives me the colic. I need at least a half-gallon of honest vine-juice after each poem.'Clark Ashton Smith was a short story writer, poet and illustrator. A friend of H.P. Lovecraft, some of his stories belong to the Cthulu Mythos.Although the quotation above is from one of his stor [...]

    5. "The Emperor of Dreams" is a large collection of 46 fantasy stories with exotic and atmospheric settings. The author's use of obscure and esoteric language encourage the reader to keep a dictionary handy.Contents:ON FANTASY SONG OF THE NECROMANCER THE ABOMINATIONS OF YONDO THE NINTH SKELETON THE LAST INCANTATION A RENDEZVOUS IN AVEROIGNE THE RETURN OF THE SORCERER THE TALE OF SATAMPRA ZEIROS THE DOOR TO SATURN THE GORGON THE WEIRD OF AVOOSL WUTHOQQUAN THE NAMELESS OFFSPRING THE EMPIRE OF THE NEC [...]

    6. A gigantic collection of stories that spans (I assume) almost the author's entire career. The first stories seemed like flagrant thesaurus abuse, but soon enough the prose became masterfully florid, ancient, and poetic. It's difficult not to compare the author to his contemporaries H.P. Lovecraft and Robert E. Howard, as all three shared ideas and universes among their work. At first I thought Clark Ashton Smith to be a somewhat generic version of the other two, with no real defining philosophy [...]

    7. Great collection of material from one of the Weird Tales Triumvirate (along with Howard and Lovecraft). Much of contemporary writing looks upon adjectives with abject horror. After Hemmingway and Pound won the style war, adjectives became pariah (much to the chagrin of those of us who love Faulkner). Language! Not just the stories, but the language of Clark's stories thrills. Imagine trying to explain the horrors of the abyss without references to movies, comics, pop-culture and pulp fiction (or [...]

    8. Often depressing. Not always "horror" because of the creepiness, but because of the pessimistic world view.
