Summary (From the publisher):

Clark Ashton Smith's Arabian Nights novel, The Black Diamonds, was thought to be the most significant of Smith's juvenile writings. But the revelation that Smith wrote another full-scale novel, The Sword of Zagan, shortly after The Black Diamonds, underscores the prodigious fecundity of Smith's teenage years. This volume contains a sheaf of never before published material by Smith: The Sword of Zagan, another thrilling Arabian Nights adventure featuring two janissaries who experience numerous close brushes with death and engage in battles with swords and fists in quest of the affections of Fatima, the Sultan's niece; nearly a dozen short stories set in India or the Middle East; and an array of poems and fragments that reveal Smith's youthful immersions into exotic realms of wonder and fantasy.
