I think that his 'The White People' is about one of my favourite pieces of writing ever - especially if you disregard the rather annoying prologue and epilogue, which in my opinion let it down badly. They add nothing whatever to the story. But that central section - the supposed diary narrative of a young girl involved with some very strange happenings - I just cannot get over it. It is just so - so perfect somehow and one of the few pieces I have read that can be said to have totally changed my attitudes towards fiction and imagination. Certainly it is no horror story as such - but it is filled full with that certain pagan frisson of magic that is central to a lot of British horror and dark fantasy even to the present day. I remember when I first read it - it just bowled me over. It is no exaggeration to say that I was so excited by it that I couldn't sleep that night!!Read more ›

Essential reading for anyone studying the works of HP Lovecraft or Clark Ashton Smith, and an extremely important collection of Wierd Fiction in it own right.
Now that is one of his best!
