When the history of fantasy and horror fiction is being discussed, the pulp magazine Weird Tales is inevitably mentioned. Published on low-grade "pulp" paper, Weird Tales was the first newsstand magazine devoted exclusively to weird and fantastic fiction. It ran for 279 issues, from March 1923 to September 1954.

The three most important and influential writers to have their work published in the title were Rhode Island horror writer H.P. Lovecraft; the Texan creator of Conan the Cimmerian, Robert E. Howard; and the California poet, short story writer, illustrator and sculptor, Clark Ashton Smith.

"The Complete Poems from Weird Tales" series collects their verse in the order that it originally appeared in the pages of "The Unique Magazine".

"CLARK ASHTON SMITH(1893-1961) was a poet, short story writer, illustrator and sculptor. One of the "big three" authors to appear in the legendary pulp magazine Weird Tales-alongside H.P. Lovecraft and Robert E. Howard - his fiction and artwork was published in a wide variety of magazines, anthologies and collections. For most of his sixty-eight years, Smith lived in a small cabin in the woods near Auburn, California, and during his lifetime he published nearly twice as many books of poetry than he did short stories." - Stephen Jones
