The Freedom Of Fantastic Things
Edited by Scott Connors,
As poet, fiction writer, and artist, Clark Ashton Smith (1893-1961) has left an indelible mark on the fields of horror, fantasy, and science fiction. But criticism of his bountiful and varied work has been surprisingly scanty, and oftentimes ill-informed. The Freedom of Fantastic Things represents the most substantial volume of criticism of Smith’s work ever published, and includes both original and previously published work by the leading scholars on Smith.

The Book of Eibon
[#6026, $17.95, 438 pp ISBN 1-56882-129-8 ] "Tales of lore tell of the Book of Eibon, a tome so ancient that it was originally written in the Hyperborean language of Tsath-Yo, long before Atlantis was born from the sea. It goes by dozens of names and predates even the Necronomicon and Unaussprechlichen Kulten. Now, Chaosium reveals the true secrets of the Book of Eibon for the first time."
"The contents of the Book of Eibon are primarily the work of Clark Ashton Smith..." Actually it's primarily the work of Lin Carter.
