Clark Ashton Smith

Author Code: ACAS

Born: Jan. 13, 1893 - Long Valley Caldera, California, USA

Died: Aug. 14, 1961 - Pacific Grove, California, USA

Smith was primarily educated at home, due to his suffering from various psychological disorders, including acute agoraphobia. He supplemented this education with intense reading, including the entire Encyclopedia Britannica - twice! At the young age of 11, he produced fairy tales and imitated the Arabian Nights. By the age of 14, he had already produced his first novel, The Black Diamonds. He sold several tales to Overland Monthly and Black Cat at the age of 17. For the next decade, he concentrated on poetry and became close friends with George Sterling, who helped him to publish his first book of verse, The Star-Treader and Other Poems, when he was only 19. Smith's health suffered and for the next eight years his output was restricted. During the 1920s, he had a succession of works that won critical acclaim. He became close friends with H.P. Lovecraft and by the end of the 1920s, he turned to fiction again and produced over a hundred short stories in the SF and Horror genres. Much of his income helped to support his elderly parents. During the 1930s, Smith suffered many tragedies including the death of his parents, Lovecraft's death from cancer and Robert E. Howard's suicide. He ceased writing fiction and again concentrated on poetry. During the 1940s, Derleth's Arkham House publishing produced several collections of Smith's works which were well-received. Smith had a heart attack in 1953. The following year he married Carolyn Dorman, later moving to Pacific Grove with her and her three children. In his later years, Smith worked at a variety of jobs, including gardening, until, in 1961, he suffered a series of strokes am died in his sleep. His works include Odes and Sonnets (1918), Ebony and Crystal (1922), Sandalwood (1925), The Double Shadow and Other Fantasies (1933), Nero and Other Poems (1937), Out of Space and Time (1942), Lost Worlds (1944), Genius Loci and Other Tales (1948), The Dark Chateau and Other Poems (1951) and Spells and Philtres (1958).
