FROM Clark Ashton Smith
TO August Derleth


Smith waiting to hear back from editors, with Farnsworth Wright considering "The Coming of the White Worm" and Astounding Stories three revised tales: "The Tomb-Spawn," "The Demon of the Flower," and "The Witchcraft of Ulua"; on the October issue of Astounding (compared unfavorably to Strange Tales, though praising Donald Wandrei's tale) and Dime Mystery; William Crawford proposing a new magazine, Unusual Stories, for which Smith has sent him "The White Sybil", but fears it will fizzle like Swanson's Galaxy; Smith anxious to see Lovecraft's "The Thing on the Doorstep" and with Knopf would publish a collection of his stories; Smith working on a new Hyperborean tale, "The Seven Geases."
