An Electronic Clark Ashton Smith (eCAS)

17 Mar

Now that John D. Haefele and Martin Andersson are putting the finishing touches on The Arkham House e-edition of the writing of H.P. Lovecraft in four volumes with many Arkham Cover illustrations, I am starting to compile an e-edition of the writing of another one of Arkham House classics — Clark Ashton Smith. There are some 44 entries for CAS in the index for 60 Years of Arkham House, spanning prose, short stories and verse. In the comic book pile of ephemera I found this photograph. I didn’t know initially exactly what I was looking at, but on the reverse Augie had noted — “Lost Worlds Jacket front.” and so I think this is the inital photo of some of his CAS stone statuary. Seems like this would make a good cover for one of the e-books. Scott Connors and John D. Haefele will be in charge of compiling and ordering the text.
