Pulp Crazy would like to wish a Happy Birthday to Robert E. Howard. In honor of Howard’s Birthday today I will be reading a short fable he wrote. Fables For Little Folk, a boxing fable about legendary heavyweight champion Jack Dempsey.

The Kingdom of Shadows by Clark Ashton Smith

http://pulpcrazy.com/podcast/CAS.mp3

I am a few days late on this, but I wanted to do something in honor of Clark Ashton Smith’s birthday. CAS was born on January 13, 1893. He was a creative individual with many talents: writing, poetry, and artwork. He is also one of the Weird Tales Big Three along with H.P. Lovecraft and Robert E. Howard.

The text for this poem, as well as the background image was found on The Eldritch Dark, the premier CAS website.. When I came across “The Kingdom of Shadows” I knew I found what I was looking for.

In hindsight, a background image depicting Zothique, rather than Hyperborea may have been more appropriate, given the contents of the poem.
