The continents of our present cycle have sunken, perhaps several times. Some have remained submerged- others have re-risen, partially, and re-arranged themselves...The science and machinery of our present civilization have long been forgotten, together with our present religions. But many gods are worshipped- and sorcery and demonism prevail again as in ancient days. — Clark Ashton SmithThe Zothique cycle as Clark Ashton Smith once styled it, compromises his largest body of unified tales and the realm to which he returned most often through the many fitful phases of his fiction career. Necrominicon Press is proud to collect all of Smiths Zothique tales, including surviving fragments as well as the play The Dead Will Cuckold You, for the first time in 25 years. Restored from the original manuscripts for the very first time, and incorporating many changes made by Smith not previously seen, Tales of Zothique is an unique opportunity to discover an author who influenced generations of readers and authors — from H. P. Lovecraft and Ray Bradbury to Jack Vance and Harlan Ellison. This is Clark Ashton Smith at his very best.Contents:The empire of the necromancersThe isle of the torturersThe charnel godThe dark EidolonThe voyage of King EuvoranThe weaver in the vaultThe tomb-spawnThe witchcraft of UluaXeethraIn the book of VergamaThe last hieroglyphShapes of adamantNecromancy in NaatThe black abbot of PuthuumThe death of IlalothaThe garden of AdomphaZothiqueThe master of crabsMandors enemyMorthyllaThe dead will cuckold you
