(From the publisher):
Welcome, connoisseurs, to the crypts of Atlantis...the caverns of uncharted planets... the most ominous recesses of the human mind.
With the resonance of Edgar Allan Poe and the scope of Jules Verne, Clark Ashton Smith's stories stand as testaments to the power of the macabre, The Last Incantation includes some of his most blood-curdling fiction.
The Death of Malygris
To his fellow magicians, he was the greatest wizard of Atlantis, and they were his greatest threat!
Seedling of Mars
The Red Planet's message was nothing less than irrational. The reprisal for rejecting it - nothing less than unthinkable!
The Vaults of Yoh-Vombis
The explorers were warned about the ancient catacombs of Mars. But no Earth man could have possibly anticipated this horror!
And including his most memorable tale: Genius Loci!
